Caliban Collected in February

Caliban-vol1Caliban, the sci-fi horror event of 2014, receives a deluxe trade paperback collection which will hit comic shops on Wednesday February 11th.  Garth Ennis is well known for being one of the most innovative creators in the field.  His approach to every story begins with believable and grounded characters that come to life with spot-on dialogue.  In Caliban, it is this dedication to breathing life into the supporting cast that really allows the terror and dread of the story to take on a life of its own.

Caliban is a classic sci-fi horror thriller but it goes far beyond the tropes of the space monster and into the psychological horror of the unknown.  Anyone who enjoys a horror story that will take you to the edge of your seat and beyond should reserve a copy with your local comic shop today.
