St. Mercy pits the Incan Empire against the American West

Writer John Zuur Platten teams up with artist Atilio Rojo for the upcoming action-packed revenge tale, St. Mercy. This all-new, four-issue miniseries kicks off this August from Image Comics and Top Cow.

A tale of vengeful retribution, St. Mercy pits the Incan Empire against the American West—and features two strong, determined young women who must defy authority and ultimately embrace their destiny. Mercedes Oro is one of the surviving descendants of the Incans who has been charged with protecting a cache of cursed gold used in their child sacrifice rituals. 

But when an outlaw tries to steal the gold for his band of thieves, he unknowingly sets events in motion that will unleash an angry god who is willing to travel through the centuries to have what he desires.

St. Mercy #1 (Diamond Code JUN210074) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, August 25.
