The Courtyard
Illustrated by Jacen Burrows

A New York Times bestseller!

"Thrilling and intriguing... An entrancing comic"
Greg McElhatton, iComics

"One of the best adaptations in comic form I've ever read"
Chris Beckett, Independent Propaganda

FBI Agent Aldo Sax has a problem. His boss has sent him deep undercover to investigate a series of bizarre and horrific murders, related only by the brutal fashion in which the victims were mutilated. Three unrelated people have already confessed to some of the killings. Only some.

But Sax is an Anomaly Theorist; finding links between unrelated factors is what he does. If he can find a link between the three confessed killers, it may lead him to a fourth. But down in the urban twilight of Red Hook, Sax is about to find that the path he needs to follow leads straight to... The Courtyard.

Adapted fom an original short story by Alan Moore.
