UPDATE: Got an email from a nice man at Aspen Comics who says, “Scourge is currently scheduled to go Digital in late January or early February. Keep checking our fb page and follow us on twitter for the latest updates.” Yay!
Sometimes a Zombie isn’t the worst thing you could become or watch others become. The sick and the shambling, we know how to fight them—with sticks and stones. But what about full-on demonic-style transformations from man to beast?
In apocalyptic scenarios, there’s always the fear that the mutations on center-stage might not be the only mutations that have occurred. We worry if animals might turn as well as people. We worry that after the walking dead come the running dead. And in Aspen Comics’ The Scourge, we worry if after the gargoyles, comes The Devil.
New York City has seen its fair share of tragedy and chaos, yet nothing can prepare the Big Apple for an outbreak of deadly, murderous gargoyles! When an epidemic of catastrophic proportions infects the sprawling metropolis, turning average, everyday citizens into the violent creatures of legend, John Griffin, a New York City cop must turn the city upside down to save not only his personal life, but also the city itself. The Scourge is an intense, action-packed horror survival story highlighting one man’s struggle to survive amongst insurmountable odds!
Unfortunately, I’m still not totally sure how to get a hold of it. It’s not available digitally yet and when I tried to order the $2.50 single issue online, the shipping came to a little over $10.00 … I’m not sure where they’re located, but over here, it a recession. The stores I checked didn’t have it but I searched Amazon and I’m fairly certain this is a link to buy issue #1 with 3.99 shipping.
I’ll update when I find out anything new!
I went to my local comic shop today and they had the series. Unfortunately, they only had issues 2-4 (no #0 or #1).
