(W/A) Livio Ramondelli
Sequel to the cult-hit story of a robotic society where criminals are bound by a Kill Lock, where if one dies, they all do! Through masterful manipulation, the brilliant and psychopathic Artisan took over an unbreakable Wraith body--saving his Lock-mates in the process. Now, the Artisan Wraith has made a safe haven for all those punished by the Kill Lock. And has set his eye on the society that punished them. It's up to two assassins, the Resolve and the Lurk, to bring down the most dangerous being in the galaxy and the planet under his command. Should they fail, the Wraith Legion will take over and where the Wraiths go, only death and destruction follow. But what secrets does the Artisan Wraith know that could tear the assassins, the Wraith Legion, and the very homeworld itself apart? Writer and artist Livio Ramondelli (Transformers) returns to the world of The Kill Lock with another tale of pulse-pounding tension and excitement. It's a space robot universe populated with startlingly evocative, all-too-human characters.
