From 2016 HARVEY AWARD NOMINEE, David Baron (GREEN ARROW: YEAR ONE, BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR, BLOODSHOT REBORN) and rising newcomer Yusuf Idris comes a noirish sci-fi adventure unlike any other.
Meet Emma London: recovery artist and bounty hunter for hire. She is strong, possibly indomitable, and did we mention...part machine.
Emma is the type that dives head first into things that most wouldn’t and shouldn’t. Those dark places that no one else will go to track down the subhuman criminals lurking in the underbelly of society and brings them to justice. STAINED first comes to life with Emma trying to take down a pair of international diamond smugglers. Emma's story explodes forward when initially what was thought to be a hunt for priceless painting with a record high bounty, leads her to something darker and more monstrous than she could have ever imagined.
This first issue of a five part mini-series with main cover art by acclaimed artist Steve Morris (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER) and a 1-in-5 Variant Cover by JOCK (Three times New York Times best-selling British Artist, THE LOSERS, WYTCHES), makes STAINED the can't miss hit of 2017.
