The Apocalypse Plan by Dan Dougherty, Rafael Nieves
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.
