In the nineties, six teenagers disappeared into a fantasy role-playing game. Only five returned. Nearly thirty years later, these broken adults are dragged back to discover the game isn’t finished with them yet. Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + the Divine) and Stephanie Hans (Journey Into Mystery)’s award-winning, critical hit series is collected in a single, beautiful, oversized hardcover volume.

Collects DIE Volumes #1-4; issues #1-20.
Kieron Gillen first came to attention as a comic creator with his 2006's Phonogram, with Jamie McKelvie. Jamie and he formed into a gestalt monster that rampaged against the next fifteen years of comics, culminating with critical and smash hit The Wicked + the Divine. When not with Jamie, he has co-created books such as DIE, The Ludocrats, Once & Future, Three, Uber and more. When not making his own worlds, he has worked on Marvel Comics biggest books, such as Uncanny X-men, Young Avengers, Thor, Iron Man, Star Wars, Eternals and Darth Vader, (where he co-created Doctor Aphra). His hobbies include pop culture, talking about pop culture, redefining what "pop culture" means in any given conversation and putting off updating his bio as long as possible.

Stephanie Hans is a seasoned illustrator. She works mostly for the books mainstream market with clients as big as Marvel, DC Comics, Image Comics, Dark Horse, Valiant, Dynamite, Vertigo, and Boom Studios.

“A deliciously dark Phantom Tollbooth-like journey told through a lens of broken humanity and a deconstruction of the role-playing game’s roots. I am entranced.” —Matthew Mercer, Critical Role

"GILLEN subverts high fantasy adventure tropes with an infusion of creepy horror, resulting in an exploration of arrested adolescence and the effects of childhood trauma made truly haunting by Hans' realistic illustrations and Cowles' gloomy color palette." ï¿9;Library Journal

“Makes for a heady combination of fascinating worldbuilding, compellingly broken characters tearing each other apart (sometimes emotionally, sometimes literally), and vivid, striking artwork.” —io9/Gizmodo
