CITY OF DUST: A PHILIP KHROME STORY reaches a shattering conclusion with its issue #5 finale, hitting comics stands next month. Created and written by fan-favorite Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, Batman: Gotham After Midnight), and with art by Zid, Brandon Chng and Garrie Gastonny (Caliber: First Canon of Justice), CITY OF DUST: A PHILIP KHROME STORY represents a stark combination between science-fiction and horror, brought to life by Niles’s unmistakable talent to entertain and frighten simultaneously, with a cutting-edge, painted-art style that pushes the envelope of sequential art. Reviews include:

"Another impressive debut in both story and art." (Ain't It Cool News)

"Steve Niles continues to change things up, and just when I thought it was one story, it is even more complex." (Comics And...)

"CITY OF DUST is a fantastic sci-fi crime book that everyone should be reading." (The Express Times)

"I cannot think of any excuse for not picking up this book, unless you don't like a fantastic story." (Comics Bulletin)

"Proving itself to be one of the more universally entertaining books available." (Comics Waiting Room)

"Did I mention this comic is straight-up awesome?" (Twelve Fingers)

"If you like futuristic noir horror, CITY OF DUST is an excellent read." (Major Spoiler)

"This is a very interesting, exciting and beautifully rendered book." (Pop Syndicate)

"With writing by Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) and art by Zid, I think Radical Publishing really has something on their hands." (Bloody Disgusting)

"There are very few series I look forward to each month. This is one of the fortunate to make the cut." (Comic Book Jesus)

“As a publisher, I couldn’t be more proud of the project,” says Radical President and Publisher Barry Levine. “And now that readers and fans have been with us from the first issue to this last chapter, I’m certain that they haven’t been disappointed with Steve’s direction of a story that continually surprised us at every turn. And if new readers can still find the first issues of CITY OF DUST, then I eagerly suggest they check them out, as it’s one of the most artistically and narratively successful projects I’ve been lucky to be a part of.”

CITY OF DUST: A PHILIP KHROME STORY marks Niles’s first major foray into science-fiction. It's the story of a police detective in a future when fiction, religion and imagination are deemed illegal. When a series of brutal murders spreads terror through his jurisdiction, however,  Khrome must track down the source of the violence and confront his own doubts about his fragile society.

CITY OF DUST: A PHILIP KHROME STORY #5 appears in the December 2008 Diamond Previews catalogue, to ship February 2009 with three covers: one by Michal Ivan (Diamond Code: DEC084198), one by Clint Langley (Diamond Code: DEC084199) and one by Nick Percival (Diamond Code: DEC084200).
