Aryan race warrior. A Mexican drug lord. A Korean hit man. A career stick-up man. The wrong guy at the wrong place at the wrong time. The puke Cho-mo-kiddy-toucher. And you! This ain't the Breakfast Club and these are ain't your new friends. Welcome to the Protective Housing Unit (PHU), home to some of world's worst criminals—many of whom so reviled they must not only be shielded from the American public, but the general prison population. This is your new life. Simon, a white-collar criminal, is a new transfer to Pensacola Federal Prison Camp. He's having a hard time adjusting to prison culture, and his newfound "friends" aren't all that interested in making his new life any easier. Everyone in the PHU has his own agenda; alliances are, at best, temporary; and even the notion of friendship is laughable. But all that is about to change. This brutal yet familiar life they've all grown accustomed to is about to come to an end as a mysterious stranger is transferred to their unit and these hardened inmates start to die… Horribly. One at a time. Manticore collects the 5-part prison horror comic series by Keith Miller and Ian Gabriel into one engrossing volume.
