Meet Lou: a civilian crossing war-torn Afghanistan with a unit of shapeshifting soldiers.
Meet Lou: a monstress held captive by the rogue beast she was sent to kill.

PRAISE FOR CRY HAVOC:
“An electrifying account of black ops, black dogs and weaponised folklore that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Best in show.” —Alan Moore
“CRY HAVOC is flawless. It sinks its teeth into you and won’t let go. Graceful, elegant, visceral and fierce, it runs the gamut. If there’s any justice in the world this will be another huge hit for Image Comics.” —The Nerdist
“The supernatural spec-ops comic for grownups. Literary, human, complicated, bloody, horrible, compulsive.” —Kieron Gillen
“CRY HAVOC arrives like Christmas, reads like candy, and lingers like a concussion. One of the most thrilling and surprising books I’ve read in ages.” —Gail Simone
