    Horror runs through the sewers of the Victorian London! The escaped Drood is looking for allies in his war against Professor Hawke. Inspector Forrester continues his inquiries into the mass murder. Meanwhile, the old magician and his assistant try to find some trace of the missing Miss Grantley… if the Intruders from the Other Side don’t kill them first!

    From the Eisner-nominated El Torres and the covers by Angel Hernandez (Green Lantern/Star Trek) comes the horror in the Victorian Age! This issue introduces the art by Juanma Aguilera!

    “This book is a horror-fantasy book in a setting that I always loved. We have ghosts, we have Lovecraftian stuff coming from the Void, we also have evil dolls and… wizards weaving and taking nice cups of tea! Everything I enjoy to write is in here.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.” -El Torres

    After The Plague, humanity was forced to regenerate itself, replacing the bodies with sophisticated machines. The new technology that saved humans from extinction seems to have nothing against their innate cruelty. Tony is one of the left humans that still enjoy feeling the simple pleasures of life… but everything goes to hell when his companion dies and his daughter is abducted.

    “The Blackening, to me, is not just a story of cyberpunk action, in this series I wanted to tell at least a couple of suggestions that have been in my mind for some time. For me, cyberpunk has always been an excuse to exacerbate the hardships we experience every day, here I wanted to talk about homophobia in a non-traditional way”, says Massimo.

    ” My protagonist is, in fact, an adoptive father whose partner is killed precisely because of the adoption of a perfectly healthy child, in a world where people can buy an artificial body so as not to die. This brings Tony, the protagonist, to take a trip to a suburban hell, to sacrifice his own soul to save his daughter. I wanted to talk about love and despair, often the two things can be connected.”

    “Here in Italy, the country where I grew up, there is much homophobia, but above all, there is a brutal judgment that underestimates the love of a father or a homosexual mother towards adoptive children. In The Blackening that will not happen, a father will give everything he owns to save his daughter.”
