The Strain #5

25 pages
Ages 16+

Consistently a step ahead of the Centers for Disease Control, elderly pawnbroker Abraham Setrakian seems to have an intimate knowledge of the epidemic rapidly spreading across New York City and the hideous creatures it's spawning. How does he know what's happening? Where did he learn about the grotesque monsters roaming the streets at night? And, most importantly, does he know how to stop them?

The scope of the mystery widens as the man who seemingly has all the answers reveals his history in the extermination camps of Nazi-occupied Poland and his first encounter with the beast behind Manhattan's invasion.

• Adapting the Strain Trilogy novels from director Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan!

• "This is cerebral horror with a dark, beastly side just waiting to pounce."—Comic Book Resources
