Here is a preview of Extermination #1 by Simon Spurrier and Jeffrey Edwards courtesy of Boom! Studios! Extermination #1 is available Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 at most comic book stores.
In the wake of an apocalyptic alien invasion, the world’s greatest super-heroes and deadliest super-villains must form an alliance to prevent their own extermination.
Two arch-enemies, Nox, a driven hero, and Red Reaper, a ruthless villain, form a volatile partnership for the greater good. The enemy of your enemy is your friend — but will they be able to ultimately put aside their bitter past to prevent global genocide? What happens when all the battle lines are redrawn and foes become unlikely allies in a desperate war for the fate of the very planet — and the outcome of a species?
