DOUBLE-SIZE DEBUT ISSUE. When coal baron, Rod Dickenson, gets a sample of a unique form of carbon that seemingly burns forever, his 30-year quest to extract the rich energy source results in covered up fatal accidents. But a new form of technology will unleash the seam and Jacob "Heat" Hatfield, a washed up baseball player is in the group that finally will extract the coal…only what they will find is an ancient secret and a new life form. "Danny Boyd's Carbon combines three distinct genres - Lovecraftian gorefest, religious picture book and political allegory - to tell the story of our slow and conscious self-poisoning." - John Sayles, Director.
