Deimos is not for the feint of heart. Set in Gateway City’s not too distant future, this series recounts the story of Deimos, a fallen angel who now seeks absolution for his past sins. In order to achieve this, he becomes a warrior for good in the war between Heaven and Hell – a war that has spilled over on to Earth. It’s not an easy road for Deimos as it seems all the forces of Hell will stop at nothing to keep him from achieving his goal! He has a long, hard journey ahead of him! Deimos is not alone in trying to achieve his heavenly pardon! There are those sent from Heaven to see to it that he realizes his desire. The mystic known as Billy, a shaman of immeasurable power guides his demonic friend in the right direction, while a guardian angel called Cardinal serves as liaison between Deimos and Heaven. For Deimos 1, the first official issue of the on-going series, Deimos creator Patrick Fillion teams up with artist Logan (Porky, the Pornomicon) to bring us a veritable tour de force. In this beautifully crafted issue, the plot thickens as Fillion and Logan pull out all the stops, resulting in a brilliantly dark and sexy tale of epic battles and complete carnality. Cardinal, the guardian angel has been charged with guiding Deimos in his missions to banish evil from the Earth. But now he’s has been captured by an evil cult who once worshiped Deimos in his heyday as a demon of Hell. The cult plans to sacrifice Cardinal and will stop at nothing to return Deimos to his old, wicked ways. Will Deimos be able to rescue Cardinal, or will he ultimately cause the angel’s death? While Deimos struggles with the cultists, a sinister new evil reveals itself. It seems that there are advantages to playing both sides of the fence for this mysterious new foe, and the first casualty of its arrival on Earth is one of Deimos’ friends.
