Rumors of War, scripted by Justin Jordan and illustrated by John Bivens, is a horror comic about the endless nightmare of war: Saving Private Ryan, if it were written by H.P. Lovecraft and directed by David Cronenberg.

The enemy is even worse: a nightmare of living war machines and endless ranks birthed by monstrous mothers. The factions are beyond good and evil, right and wrong. The war has no end; no point beyond the humiliation of the enemy.

Promised a ticket home if he can complete a suicide mission deep into the enemyís territory, the soldier will fight horrors beyond imagination. But what will he have to become in order to survive?
