NEW STORY ARC
Writer JASON AARON and artist R.M. GUÉRA return to the stark and brutal world of THE GODDAMNED for the long-awaited second chapter of their biblical-noir epic.
Genesis 6:4. “…the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men. And they bore children to them…”
In the time before the Great Flood, the world of man is a place of wanton violence and unbridled depravity. But hidden high atop a mountain, there is a very different sort of world. One without men. Here, the holy sisters at a secret nunnery live in paradise, a new Eden, rearing their flock of orphaned girls to embrace their future as blessed Brides of the Sons of God. But when Sharri and Jael, two girls on the cusp of flowering, uncover what it truly means to become a Bride, they realize there’s only one way to escape the bonds of matrimony: run like hell.
To escape a wedded fate worse than death, Sharri and Jael flee into the thorny wilderness beyond the secret nunnery that’s all they’ve ever known. But the brutal Old Mothers of the Mountain, with their stone spears and bone daggers, aren’t about to let the young brides slip away
