PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: GARTH ENNIS – the creator of Preacher and Crossed – delivers a story like no other, as an unlikely band of canines set out to survive in a world gone horribly mad. When a worldwide plague wipes out humanity, what happens to man’s best friend? Charlie was a helper dog and he was good at it. Now he and his friends Rover and Red must escape the bloody city and find their way in this strange master-less new world. Ennis applies his incredible talent for shockingly original tales and spot-on dialogue in this fully painted story will change the way you look at pets and takes you on a spiritual journey of rediscovery through the eyes of these canine best friends. Rover Red Charlie Vol 1 TP collects issues #1-6 of the comic book series.
“In Rover Red Charlie, an uncomprehending dog’s-eye view of the apocalypse, perhaps the medium’s finest writer essays a breathtaking feat of the imagination with enormous heart and not a trace of sentiment. Given a damp and warm reality by Michael DiPascale’s beautifully-judged art, Garth Ennis manages, with hardly any homo sapiens in sight, to tell what is quite possibly the most profoundly human story of his already astonishing career. This is a book for life, not just for Christmas. - ALAN MOORE"
