DC Comics gave us an exclusive preview of The Last God #3 from DC Black Label. The series is an epic high-fantasy/horror adventure like Lord of the Rings meets body horror. The issue is written by Philip Kennedy Johnson, with art by Ricardo Federici, lettering by Tom Napolitano, and a cover from Kai Carpenter.
Beyond the edge of creation lies the Black Stair. And beyond it, amidst the void, he waits. Mol Uhltep, The Last God. This is the tale of those who claimed to slay him, and the world they doomed with their lies. In the third chapter of DC’s dark fantasy epic The Last God, Queen Cyanthe and her unlikely companions make their way across the land of Cain Anuun toward the Pinnacle-city stronghold of the Guild Eldritch, a powerful order of sorcerers led by Skol, another fabled member of the original fellowship of Godslayers. There they hope to find protection from the looming forces of Mol Uhltep and his inhuman servant, King Tyr. In the past, we see young Tyr, Cyanthe, and Veikko Al Mun make their way toward a similar destination, while they uncover more secrets of the Last God’s plan and make an unlikely ally.
In the previous issue, we began to see the story diverge into two different points of time with the present focusing on the survivors attempt to flee the castle with Queen Cyanthe. Meanwhile, the past focused on the story of how Tyr and Cyanthe first met, under the most horrific of circumstances. Issue three will continue exploring these plotlines.
The Last God #3 will be available in comic book stores and online through ComiXology using our affiliate link on December 18, 2019. The issue will retail for $4.99.
