East of West and Fantastic Four author JONATHAN HICKMAN launches a fierce new series that stomps where others fear to tread.? Mankind has argued over the existence of gods since the dawn of time.?

Now Horus walks the streets of Egypt, Zeus has taken over the Sistine Chapel, and Odin is coordinating the dissection of the earth among the returned deities.? Mankind held sway over the world for thousands of years and their hubris over that time has made them powerful but when faced with the divine, can mortal weapons put an end to the second coming of the gods??

DAN THE UNHARMABLE VOL 2 TP
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Fan favorite writer DAVID LAPHAM has created one of the truly original gonzo comics of the decade.? Dan is the man. He?s a self-made slacker who some might call a bum, but he calls perfect. After all, he doesn?t need much, some good tunes, a couple of bucks, and a warm spot to take a nap in. Of course, his sort-of-maybe-wannabe kids keep getting into trouble with the most insane killers imaginable. It?s enough to give a guy cancer just thinking about it. But this unharmable likable bumpkin has to get his act together and help the kids before social services splits them up or a secretive Hollywood society of killers turn them into ground beef. Explosive and imaginative crime noir as written by a master of the genre, Eisner Award-winning writer David Lapham. Collects issues #7 – 12 of the Dan the Unharmable series.
