DELLEC: HANDS OF GOD VOL. 1 TPB

Written by Frank Mastroumauro and Vince Hernandez, penciled by Micah Gunnell, inked by Rob Stuff, colors by Peter Steigerwald and Matt Hollingsworth.

Dellec is really an everyday man caught up in a blur of immorality, yet his quest is always clear—destroy the forces of evil where they flourish--and even places where the lines of good and evil are not easily defined. Following a tragic set of circumstances leading to his wife's murder at the hands of a malevolent Demi-God named Tera, our hero lands headfirst into the battle between good and evil—and his chances for survival are grim. However, Dellec is not one to back down from a fight no matter the foe—specifically when his own life hangs in the balance. Along the way, Dellec will encounter a primal street gang, ambush an illegal street fight, track down a serial killer, and much more in this riveting first volume of his epic story. Dellec is one man's quest for vengeance and redemption as he attempts to take on the very being that created mankind itself -- God!

200 pages, $18.99, in stores on August 11.
