His predecessor’s body lies decaying against a bulkhead, beneath monstrous images of impossible beings drawn in blood. And the horrifying vision of an alien on fire hovers outside the ship, as the bang of rocky fists on the hull echoes throughout darkened hallways… PLUS: A bonus page written by Jonathan Hickman – WHO ARE THE G.O.D.S.?
