In these stories from issues #18-25, Gus reluctantly joins Jepperd on a missing persons hunt as the tension between the two continues to grow. Meanwhile, Lucy and the girls meet the enigmatic Walter Fish.
They were hunted... but they survived.
The half-animal hybrid child called Gus and the big man called Jepperd have escapes the clutches of a brutal militia, with a ragtag band of scientists, survivors, and other hybrids in tow. Though the betrayals and sins of the past are fresh in their minds, an uneasy truce binds the group together.
Now they head north to Alaska, where salvation from the sickness that slaughtered billions -- and the mysterious condition that created Gus and his hybrid friends -- may be found.
But they're not alone in the wilderness. Deadly predators -- some human, some not --- stalk the snowy wastelands. Potential allies do too, though their locked doors could hide false intentions. And even within the group, frightening secrets and powerful visions threaten to shatter the fragile peace.
Now Gus must decide whom he can truly trust. If he makes the wrong choice, he and everyone he cares about could be headed for extinction...
