Overview

What if Heaven and Hell were rival corporations and instead of sales, their charts tracked souls? And what if one company decided to initiate a hostile takeover of the other? The Apocalypse plan tells this story.

Mr. Abaddon is called to the office to investigate a macabre scene; a board room full of Morningstar employees, all dead in a grisly way. The cause of their deaths is a mystery; toxic gas? Infection? murder?

The no-nonsense Abaddon attempts to solve the problem in the most immediate way possible, with the help of an impressionable young woman named Theda. Together they discover a plot to destroy Morningstar and its influence on mankind, a plot masterminded by their rival company, the Grace Corporation. Can they stop this assault in time? Or will the world suffer a hostile takeover of biblical proportions?

The Apocalypse Plan is a thrill ride of intrigue, deception, mayhem, and more, and introduces one of the most unique anti-heroes in comics.

Editorial Reviews

Brian Azzarello
"A taut, terrific graphic novel. Nieves & Dougherty have crafted a cinematic thriller with an incisively black sense of humor."
Chris Derdowski
"I found it somewhat challenging to write a review of this book without spoiling anything because so much of what I loved about it lies in the details. I want to tell you exactly why it’s so awesome but at the same time, I’m recommending that you pick it up and I don’t want to ruin any aspects of the story."
Shawn D. Hilton
"This was THE book of C2E2."

    To when rp shuts down

    I thank you so much for this! I spend day and night rping. But do you have to give up se<_>x rps? People do enjoy them. Can't you let them have a little excitement? But if it gets to detailed you can ban them. Please consider this. Your desision effects the lies of fellow rpers! Again thx for doing this and how can bn be so cruel!? It is the rpers business and it doesn't effect everyone that much... again thx and plz consider these suggestions!
