PARA – Graphic Novel$19.95
Complete compilation of all six issues of Stuart Moore’s PARA in a graphic novel form, featuring new short story by Stuart Moore and special Supercollider schematics by Langdon Foss.
Deep beneath the heart of Texas it lies: the Supercollider, the world’s largest, most powerful particle accelerator. But a horrific disaster in the mid-’80s left it highly radioactive, killing everyone including the project’s head scientist, Dr. William Erie.
Now, twenty years later, Sara Erie – the doctor’s daughter – is determined to find out the real story. But when Sara and an investigative team descend into the Supercollider, they find no bodies – just abandoned radiation badges, shadowy, inhuman figures that move very fast, keeping out of sight in the darkened tunnels, frogs frozen in an amber-like substance. And one word, scrawled repeatedly on the walls in blood: PARA.
