Priest Purgatory #1 is the first of an original, full-color, standard-format, four-part mini-series that bridges the storyline between the TOKYOPOP Priest series and the feature film, Priest, from Sony/Screen Gems starring Paul Bettany (Da Vinci CodeA Beautiful Mind).  A military-grade host of clerics slaughters vampire mutants in the distant future, dressed in leather body armor and equipped with swords. As the veil of evil threatens to engulf humanity, one man among them stands in the way of the apocalypse: our hero, a fallen priest who sold his soul for the power to battle evil and fight for humanity’s redemption.

Eisner-nominated author, Dan Jolley, immerses the reader in a world covered with the undead, where clerics employ martial power and discipline to form the frontline defense in The Vampire Wars.  Artist Diego Yapur has a style that echoes the old EC 1970’s horror comics — lots of spot blacks, fine detail, and emotive facial expressions!
