THE UN-MEN #1
Written by John Whalen
Art by Mike Hawthorne
Cover by Tomer Hanuka

Breakout writer John Whalen and Eisner-nominated artist Mike Hawthorne (THE EXTERMINATORS, Queen and Country) bring chilling new life to THE UN-MEN — the former SWAMP THING adversaries created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson — with a series that explores what it means to be a freak in a society filled with gawkers.
They say the freaks come out at night. But in Aberrance, U.S.A., freaks are big business. On the board of directors sit the freakiest freaks of all — birthed in the profane laboratories of Anton Arcane — THE UN-MEN.
In this new, ongoing series — masterfully mixing gritty noir, grindhouse horror and gallows humor — an albino agent known as Kilcrop is dispatched by the government to solve the murder of a sideshow attraction called “The Gill-Boy.” To uncover the truth, Kilcrop must infiltrate Aberrance, where society’s most misshapen outcasts find their own kind of freedom. But with the original Un-Men in charge, Kilcrop must confront a corruption far deeper than the mysterious death of a man who breathes through his neck. And he must deal with his growing love for a one-armed, angel-winged beauty named Niko — an attraction that could prove fatal. The truth he discovers may be the secret hidden within his own outsider’s soul.
