Former Wild C.A.T.s gunman Grifter is a crack shot with telekinetic powers - and Authority member Midnighter might be the most dangerous man alive. What could pose a threat to two extremely deadly individuals...?

When Grifter and Midnighter are plagued with apocalyptic visions, they discover that a telepath has enlisted them for a terrifying mission - to destroy a nigh-unstoppable, barely sentient world-conquering alien race. Now, with a showdown looming on a strange planet... to save the world, one of them must die. Chuck Dixon (Batman) and Ryan Benjamin (Stormwatch) present an action-packed tale where the fate of the world rests with two violent and unpredictable sociopaths.

The Grifter: There isn't a place on Earth that he can't slaughter his way out of. Blessed - or cursed - with extra-human powers that allow him to protect a humanity that he can never again be a part of, Cole Cash has walked away from everything that made him human to become the most dangerous man alive.

The Midnighter: Driven by a rage against injustice bordering on madness, the Midnighter takes lives to save lives and murders for peace. His mind is a matrix of a million fight scenarios that keep him one nanosecond ahead of his enemies and a million miles from serenity.

A fantastic script by Chuck Dixon and great illustrations by Ryan Benjamin bring this bizarre tale of mystery and intrigue vividly to life. Those wanting something a little different should give this collection a try.
