Guess what I now own?

The first two issues of The Atheist comic:The covers are cool enough, but the story is kind of neat:

When your fears are beyond belief you need a hero beyond believing. Antoine Sharpe is a scalpel on two legs – skeptical, brilliant, ruthless. A special agent with a shadowy department of the U.S. government, Sharpe applies his unconventional intellect to any paranormal threats that arise. His mission: Debunk or destroy. When countless teenagers show signs of otherworldly possession, Sharpe and his partner must not only find the truth, but stop the apparent plague from destroying civilization itself. How far will Sharpe go to save humanity? Farther than you can imagine! This trade paperback collects the hard-to-find, critically acclaimed mini-series, featuring the complete first story-arc of comic superstar Phil Hester’s enigmatic, intellectual government agent.

Woooo skeptical super heroes!

Unfortunately it’s an old comic and there are only two additional issues. I kind of want to get my hands on them. At the very least they’d make some badass artwork for my new apartment.

Thanks, Ryan, for the great gift!

    Kool Jen, those are gonna be hard to find. Hang on to the ones you have hon’ cuz they will never show up in hands again. Might even be worth putting insurance on them cuz they may be worth a lot of dough. Take Care

    These are a few years old, it is a good read, but it sort of ends abruptly.There was talk of the title being optioned as a series on Sifi (back when it was SciFi) but with the title change to Sharpe.

    Looks awesome, but I can’t stop wondering about the freaky assortment of items on the cover of the first. TeenSpirit deodorant and the skeleton of a small animal? And lets not forget the dead cockroach as well. Its like a crime scene…
