The future: a dying Earth has been abandoned, the poor and weak left behind. While Earth's elite survivors colonized Mars, its outcasts--the miscreants, criminals, fringe-dwellers, crackpot scientists, and sociopaths--fled inward, to Venus ("a place fit for scumbags"). Three generations later, the denizens of Venus, strengthened by hardship forged in brutality and hellish conditions, are thriving. Attracted by the successful launch of Venus's second floating "cloud city," the corporate fascists of the Mars Council launch an insurgency for control of Venus... but Braxton, the third generation leader of this colony of outlaws, will fight to save his family dynasty.
Previously published in Dark Horse Presents, this is the collection--and continuation--of Ken Pisani and Arturo Lauria's highly praised sci-fi drama Colonus.
"COLONUS quenches its audience's thirst for intelligent science fiction via a cocktail of killer art, grounded characters, and unique world building--finished off with a splash of subversion." -Nicole Perlman, Guardians of the Galaxy screenwriter
"Loved it! COLONUS is another fresh take on what the future holds for mankind. This is the kind of sci-fi I live for." --Jimmy Palmiotti, Harley Quinn, Painkiller Jane
"A hell of a story with echoes of Arthur C. Clarke and Greek tragedy, one that gives us an image of our own times." --Denny O'Neil, Batman, Green Lantern/Green Arrow
"Big, expansive, filled with a rich curiosity of distant worlds and people, all of which become vehicles for examining humanity in its barest form." --Michael Moreci, Hoax Hunters, Roche Limit
"Bada bing! A mob war in space! Bad ass and righteous--even Tony's crew would not f*ck with these guys!" --Joe Gannascoli, The Sopranos
"Total Recall on steroids. If Frank Miller and Mike Mignola had a love child, his name would be Arturo Lauria. I'm drooling for the next chapter." --Monkeys Fighting Robots
"5 out of 5 stars! Pisani creates a world that is so immediately believable that it's almost too scary to read. And speaking of horrific, Lauria's artwork is amazing and terrifying and compelling all in one." --comicbooked.com
"High concept...but also effortless. FANTASTIC premise, an incredible, brilliant allegory on the growth of nations into power. Arturo Lauria's artwork is striking a bold." --The Beat: Comics Culture
"A great balance of sci-fi, a touch of horror, and a perfect dash of quirk. Gritty...with just the right amount of deadpan humor mixed in." --Comics Grinder
"Arturo Lauria has created a future full of hard edges, sharp angles, and hard contrast. It's strange, but...beautiful (granted, in a dark, terrifying way)." --All Geek to Me
"Fun, smart sci-fi with a striking visual style. We need more sci-fi like COLONUS in comics!" -Fred Van Lente, X-Men Noir, Spider-man, Archer & Armstrong

A l’issue du premier volume d’Abaddon, son héros, Ter, était finalement parvenu à s’extraire de l’appartement où il semblait devoir passer le restant de ses jours. Pourtant, la dernière page laissait présager que cette sortie ne serait pas aussi simple qu’espérée. L’adieu à ses quatre colocataires en était-il vraiment un ? Sur quoi les cauchemars et visions de guerre terrifiants qui hantaient Ter vont-ils finalement déboucher ? Enfin, le mystérieux Abaddon trouvera-t-il explication rationnelle ?Dans ce second volume, Koren Shadmi continue de développer son univers intrigant et fascinant, avec une maîtrise de la narration toujours aussi remarquable.Comme pour le premier opus, impossible de lâcher celui-ci avant la fin, le lecteur est happé : autant par l’intrigue dérangeante, qui semble être le creuset de toutes les obsessions et sentiments humains engendrés par nos relations aux autres, conflictuelles, torturées, aliénantes, que par le graphisme, au découpage fluide et efficace, porté par les mêmes rouge et vert déconcertants.Si l’intrigue s’épaissit, une chose est certaine : avec Abaddon, Koren Shadmi aura réussi à imposer un style très personnel, et tiré de toutes les influences déjà évoquées à son sujet — de Kafka à Sartre en passant par Topor — une œuvre puissante et d’une originalité rare.
"Eccentrically impressive." Ray Olson, Booklist "Nobody can touch Renee French for sweet fiendishness."-- Jim Woodring "Renee French has long been one of my favorite artists and she doesn't disappoint in her latest work. Tiny creatures in tiny drawings with lots of crapballs makes this another freakish delight that also winds up being strangely touching."-- Jenna Fischer (Pam, on The Office) Micrographica takes Ren_e French's Ignatz award nominated online strip of the same name and turns it way up. A mob of tiny rodents live la vida loca, led by the trash-talking bully Moe, and his trash-talking sidekick Preston. Add in Nubbins, the big guy; poor, sweet crapball-lovin' Aldo; and a rotting corpse turned playground, and you'll never find a more moving affirmation of traditional values. Inspired by a bald bird sighting while the author was wandering Hunter's Hill in Sydney, Australia, this book is pure weirdness -- just what Ren_e French fans dream of. With guest drawings by Jim Woodring, Penn Jillette, Dean Cameron, Dylan Williams, James Gunn and more.
