Thomas Dane goes looking for a man who doesn't want to be found. From JONATHAN HICKMAN (EAST OF WEST, Secret Wars, Avengers) and TOMM COKER (UNDYING LOVE) comes the next installment in the crypto-noir series about the power of dirty, filthy money... and exactly what kind of people you can buy with it. THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS is classic occultism where the various schools of magic are actually clandestine banking cartels who control all of society: a secret world where vampire Russian oligarchs, Black popes, enchanted American aristocrats, and hitmen from the International Monetary Fund work together to keep ALL OF US in our proper place. Collects issues 5 through 8. "Both dense and varied... offering an intriguing glimpse into a world where magic and finance are intertwined. It's both right in line with Hickman's past work and wholly unique." --IGN "Both huge and relatable. The hook threads a bizarre and long-standing conspiracy into the world of finance, rooted in a visceral supernatural dimension, but a welcome humanity gives that conflict a relatable core." --Paste Magazine "Demands every fiber of your attention, The Black Monday Murders is a bit out of step with current titles and that makes it that much better." --Fangoria
