So what’s A Vicious Circle about?

Shawn Thacker is a trained assassin from the future who seeks revenge on the only other man with his affliction—each life they take forces them both to involuntarily travel between vastly different past and future eras. Spanning from 22nd century Tokyo to 1950s New Orleans to the Cretaceous Era and beyond, the two mortal rivals are locked in a battle of wills that spans millions of years, all to alter the course of history.

With each time period, legendary artist Lee Bermejo adjusts his artistic style to pay homage to luminary comics artists and historical master painters, presented in a prestige, oversized format!

Check out Lee’s cover below.
