“An interesting new take on the story in the expert hands of a great
writer.” – Trash Mutant Through the ritual of Palimpsest, the
sinister Sect of Anubis have gained immortality by drinking the blood
of a human sacrifice forcefully chosen to host the spirit of an
ancient Egyptian High Priestess. Now the latest host, Angel Kostenko,
is lost, on the run, and fighting for her very life and soul against
the Sect and a giant demon hound called Ammit. Heralding the rebirth
of a Hammer legend and written by fan-favorite Peter Milligan
(X-static, X-Force, Shade, the Changing Man, Hellblazer, and Batman).
This album collects the Mummy: Palimpsest five-issue mini-series and
includes a cover gallery and series of articles about the original
Hammer Mummy films written by official Hammer historian Marcus Hearn.
Meet Kid, the youngest descendant of a rich, demented hotelier named
Big Daddy. Kid is the newly appointed manager of “The Suites,” but
his good looks and swagger can’t hide a rough childhood of strange
therapies and brain operations that have awakened inner demons and
psychodramas. This of course makes him eminently quali ed to perform
lobotomies. A failed rockstar/ successful madman gets one last chance
to prove his worth — and regain his sanity— by turning the hotel that
was once his childhood sanctuary into a lucrative business despite a
host of obstacles including seductive shapeshifters, dead literary
heroes and Kid’s own sister, who would love nothing more than to see
him fail miserably.
