Author: Jonathan Hickman, Nick Dragotta

Rating: 5/5 stars
Reading Challenges: Graphic Novel
This is the world. It is not the one we wanted, but it is the one we deserved. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse roam the Earth, signaling the End Times for humanity, and our best hope for life, lies in DEATH!
Of the three random comics I grabbed off the library shelf, this is definitely the best series. I shouldn't be surprised. It's written by Jonathan Hickman who also wrote The Manhattan Projects. Instead of science, we focus on the supernatural embodied in the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I was immediately pulled into the world. Fascinating! An alternate history with some interesting supernatural bits throw in... Must read the next volume.
