Blood Tree #1 confronts the battle of nature versus nurture, and considers how present and future generations are tainted by past generations. From comics super team Peter J. Tomasi (Superman) and Maxim Śimić comes a gripping tale of two obsessed NYPD detectives hunting for a vicious butcher called the Angel Killer.
Blood Tree follows Detectives Darryl Azzaro and Roberta Wolf as they attempt to catch the diabolical Angel Killer, who preys on innocent family members of known murderers in order to “purify” society. As these detectives dig deeper into their investigation, they must also grapple with questions about justice and morality. Can one man really single-handedly purge an entire population of its sins? Is it possible to separate one person from their past or will their legacy always haunt them? The answers they seek won’t be easy – especially since this killer’s motives may be more sinister than they ever expected.
