PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Warren Ellis launches his new creator-owned line of books right here with the first four books from Apparat! The four Apparat books are inspired by the pulp magazines of the 1930's and imagine modern day comic books that evolved from the pulps without the influence of super-heroes. Each issue features a full-length story with loads of extra text material by Ellis. Quit City is illustrated by indy fav Laurenn McCubbin. Ellis describes the creation of Quit City, "The aviation pulps were the first to fade from memory. AIR WONDER STORIES. G-8 And His Battle Aces. Dusty Ayres And His Battle Birds. Not just combat pilots, but adventurers and heroes, fighting strange wars in the air. From a time when flight was still a little like magic, and aviators were heroes. They were an elite group, brave and skilled, technological explorers. The aviator hero couldn't survive the future, of course. Pilots are no longer rare and remarkable creatures. Like all great leaps, they became old ground. And so has Emma Pierson. She's the truth and the metaphor, and the classic pulp adventure story thrown into reverse. She's the aviator-heroine who's turned her back on it all. She's quit and gone home. She actually thinks she can go back to her old life, and that nothing's going to follow her. And she's almost right."
