Lyrical, at times surrealist and others raw-boned, Party At The Worlds End isnt afraid to defy expectations at every turn. First in the Fallen Cycle transmedia series.“Beautiful!” David Mack, renowned sequential artist of Kabuki, Daredevil, Dexter.“Brutal, darkly funny, and, above all, honest.” Powell’s Books Short List.“A progressive fictional universe created by a wickedly talented scribe...

A bunch of kids playing a bomb threat prank that had gone way too far, is what he thought. Some of them were claiming the names of Gods and demons: Dionysus, Loki, Lilith, Jesus.Dionysus, Jesus, and some accomplice named Johny were imprisoned, and Agent Trevino thought that was the end of that.A year later they staged a truly improbable break from the mental asylum. He was called into a shadowy agency and told to track down these terrorists, to report their connections, their movements, and then terminate with extreme prejudice. Just four more American civilians killed in the name of freedom from terror, they said. But the order didnt sit right with him.He tracked them across the country, and discovered a counterculture world deeper and stranger than he could have imagined. Kids were disappearing from their homes to follow the pied piper act of their band, Babylon. Babylons ops posture was a bastard-child synthesis of Anonymous, MEND, Al Qaeda, ISIS, Hamas, and the Grateful Dead. But their ideology was pure Ken Kesey and the Acid Test. These werent terrorists in any traditional sense. As Babylons message spread, he had to face reality. Could he hope to stop what he hardly understood?This is the story of how the Fallen returned to our world, and hints of the world to come.--------------------------This is an edited, single volume containing what was first serialized as Fallen Nation, 404 Documents and Words of Traitors, as well as 20 black and white reproductions from the concept art sketchbook.
