Written by Simon Oliver, art by Tony Moore, cover by Philip Bond.

Imagine Six Feet Under with cockroaches and you've got Vertigo's twisted new monthly series The Exerminators, a smart, scary, darkly comic tale of roaches, rats, raccoons and the men who kill them for a living.

The Exterminators centers on a dysfunctional group of bug killers prowling the barrios and bungalows of Los Angeles -- the thinnest point on the shaky borderline between civilization and the violent chaos of nature.

Henry James, the newest exterminator, sees the job as a means to cleanse the sins of his dark past. He has a hard time getting his view across to his careerist girlfriend, sociopathic partner, and the general bunch of freaks he calls co-workers. But what the "bug brothers" of Bug-Bee-Gone Co. don't understand is that human beings may be the true pests -- and bugs could be the real exterminators.

Featuring creepy-crawly covers by Philip Bond, The Exterminators mixes disturbing characters, killer cockroaches and sinister secrets into a unique and unsettling series that branches out from the underbelly of L.A. into the heart of an ancient mystery, a sacred scarab beetle and a weirdly ominous locked box. It's a bug's world. We just live in it.
