The Fate of the World is in Good Hands. Protecting the planet from the strange is what Verity, Michael, and Sandoval do best, and on the island nation of Hidalgo, things have been getting very strange indeed. The president has declared martial law, sending everyone to excavations in the jungle. But the strangest thing of all is the involvement of the mysterious organization O.C.C.U.L.T. What could they want with an island with no strategic value? It’s up to the Strangers to find out!
Get a sneak peek at The Strangers #1 on Free Comic Book Day, and preorder #2 while you are at it! The story continues on July 17th, 2013, when both #1 and #2 retail editions go on sale.
