HOTWIRE: REQUIEM FOR THE DEAD

Written, art and lettered by Steve Pugh, based on a story by Warren Ellis.

In the near future, the living and the dead share the same space. Known as ³Blue Lights,² the non-living are mostly harmless, roaming the streets, hiding from city lights, scuttling in the shadows. But when they begin to appear as ghostly weapons of mass destruction, Metro Police has only one person for the job: Alice Hotwire, Detective Exorcist. Underfunded, undermanned and under investigation, her department is the only thing standing between the city and certain destruction.

This deluxe hardcover book collects, for the first time, the four-issue miniseries in a special "directorıs cut" edition that includes creator notes and early character designs that evolved into the Hotwire: Requiem for the Dead series. This edition also contains newly remastered tales from Alice Hotwire's past, featuring never-before-seen pages and newly painted artwork, as well newly unearthed, previously unreleased pages written by co-creator Warren Ellis; an extensive gallery showcasing the evolution of the character; a spotlight gallery of artwork from Pugh, Stjepan Sejic, Jelena Djurdjevic and Garry Leach; an in-depth interview with co-creator Pugh as well as a dustjacket showcasing an all new cover by Pugh.

120 pages, $19.95.
