Meet Hunter Murphy.
Yesterday, he died of a drug overdose in a filthy New York City back-alley. Today, he awoke in the City Morgue with no real memory of who he is or how he got there. He only knows his name thanks to the toe tag he’s wearing.
Slipping out into the night, Hunter wanders the city, clad in clothing he gathered from a dumpster. He may not know anything about himself, but he instinctively knows every corner of the teeming metropolis.
And the city seems to know him.
Traffic flow seems to naturally break when he wants to cross the street. No door is locked to him, no metal gate sealed shut. When he runs into trouble (which happens quite a bit) the city seems to help him in some way.
But there are others who know him, too, or at least they think they do.
The Wide-Eyed Three is a group of conspiracy theory nutjobs who have been exiled from society—for good reason. When they learn of Hunter’s miraculous return from the dead, they think they’ve found their ticket to redemption. And if they have to kill Hunter again and again to prove their wild theories, that’s what they’ll do!
Hunter’s not a bad guy, but he has a secret.
And that secret is a killer.
METRO is a 122-page (very) dark urban fantasy graphic novel. Set in New York City, this is a violent, chaotic story with good amounts of mayhem, carnage, and humor. It is also a story of magic and wonder, exploring the nature of the sprawling cities we call our homes. As Hunter awakens into the hidden and unfamiliar world that exists alongside our owns, he learns what it means to be a normal human… starting with the idea that there is no such thing as normal.
