Written and art by Ben Templesmith.

Ben Templesmith returns with his first solo project since Singularity 7. Meet Wormwood, the English-accented, beer-drinking, sentient corpse possessing a maggot expat from the Hell dimension. Well, one of them. If he's not attempting to save Earth from demonic, parasitic fungal infections or undead strippers, then he's off drinking with his homemade mechanical sidekick, Mr. Pendulum. Collecting one of the original short stories first seen in Lo-Fi Magazine, this book also includes extra pages, new artwork and background material. It's a perfect prelude to the upcoming, all-new Wormwood regular series coming from IDW Publishing, written and drawn by the artist responsible for 30 Days of Night, Singularity 7, and Fell.

Does that mean he's prepared to just let Razorbeast and his Maximal militia be? Of course not. Not now that Ravage is on the case!
