to its heart!
The first Newbury & Hobbes comic series comes to an explosive end, as
steampunk detective duo Sir Maurice Newbury and Miss Veronica Hobbes
finally face off against an old enemy. Is he back from the dead? Or
is he simply undying? A new mystery in the world of the cult hit
novel series, from original creator George Mann (Dark Souls, Doctor
Who, Warhammer 40,000) with art by Dan Boultwood (It Came!, The
Phoenix). Plus, the last part of the brand-new Newbury & Hobbes
prose short by George Mann.
A fierce battle ensues as Chaos Marine Rendix bursts through the
breach on the Dark Angels’ barge, while Baltus and his team
successfully make their way on board the Inquisition vessel. Under
orders from Sabbathiel to protect the vault, Hera, Anya and Fitch
attack the Dark Angels, but Hera is struck dead by Baltus’ bolter
blast. Back on the Dark Angels’ ship, the Fallen makes his way into
the fight, destroying everyone is his path. While trying to defend
the blockade, Seraphus and the rest of the Dark Angels are confronted
with the sudden appearance of the Grey Knights and Sabbathiel – who
declare annihilation for all heretics!
