Bryan Talbot And Mark Stafford's Cherubs In October

Bryan Talbot And Mark Stafford's Cherubs In October

Mark Stafford is one of my favourite comic book artists – a heady mix of Evan Dorkin, Robert Crumb and Jamie Hewlett. Over the past few years, he'd been drawing this series, partially published by Desperado, written by Bryan Talbot about a series of renegade angels on Earth, whose cherubic form belied their sordid natures. I'm not sure exactly how many people read it, but now Dark Horse are to collect it, with all the unpublished material in this hardcover collection.

Falsely accused of heaven's first homicide, five churlish cherubim escape to New York in pursuit of the renegade archangel Abbadon on the eve of the Apocalypse! Befriended by exotic-dancer Mary and chased by unstoppable Seraphim terminators, the Cherubs alone stand against hell's hordes as Satan prepares to make war, not love!

192 pages, $20, hardcover, tell your comic book retailer soonish…
