What if a biological terror agent wiped out most of humanity, and our domesticated animals were left in charge? How would our dogs and cats set about ruling and rebuilding the world? Ransom, the leader of the Dog Tribe, has been murdered by a creature known as the Endark. An English Pointer named Legend reluctantly rises to lead in his place, vowing to kill the monster once and for all. From acclaimed novelist Samuel Sattin and award-winning illustrator Chris Koehler comes LEGEND, where cat technology rules, dogs partner with hawks, and humans may be the most beastly creatures of all.
LEGEND has already received critical acclaim:
“Just lovely. Legend is a haunting post-apocalyptic tale, set in a community of tails. This captivating, fully realized canine fable takes its place beside Grant Morrison’s WE3 and Brian K. Vaughn’s Pride of Baghdad, while creating its own new animist mythos. This is a title to watch for.”- NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Mat Johnson
“Samuel Sattin and Chris Koehler’s LEGEND is a lot like what would happen if Harlan Ellison wrote CALL OF THE WILD, while being possessed by Cthulhu. It’s an epic tale of loyalty, courage, and defiance.” -David Gallaher, THE ONLY LIVING BOY
“An action-packed epic, full of warriors and monsters, that surprises with its quieter moments and–yes–its humanity.”- Robert Repino, Mort(e)
“Legend is an endearing tale, filled with darkness and mystery, beautifully illustrated to capture every threat, every surreal horror, and every glimmer of hope.”—Richard Thomas, author of Breaker
“LEGEND is an incredible odyssey that will leave you breathless. With its gorgeous art and sharp dialogue, this post-apocalyptic fable is compelling and mesmerizing. Imagine Dark Knight Returns, Animal Farm, and Saga all rolled into one.” – Peter Tieryas, author of United States of Japan
