RAPTURE (Matt Kindt / CAFU)

*'On a scarred landscape, two otherworldly armies prepare to battle one last time, vying for control of a massive tower named from an ancient language no longer permitted to be spoken.

'One army is led by a primeval force named Babel, whose goal is singular: to breach ‘Heaven’ no matter the cost. The only thing standing in his way is a gray-haired barbaric warrior, filled with rage and regret – a man who sees this battle as his last chance for redemption. But he knows his depleted forces have little chance of victory unless aid comes soon.

“Enter Tama: A 12-year old girl on the crest of a hill overlooking the battle, who has just become humanity’s only hope. The last in an ancient line of mystics who protect the Earth, she has foreseen this battle and knows millions will perish if she’s unable to stop it. Now Tama and her ragtag team of malcontents - Ninjak, Shadowman and Punk Mambo - must somehow defeat an elder god hell bent on piercing the heavens.”*

La mini-série en 4 épisodes Rapture, qui réunira Ninjak et Shadowman, sera publiée à partir de mai 2017. L’équipe créative est composée de Matt Kindt (X-O Manowar) au scénario et CAFU (Rai) aux dessins.
