Paperback / softback
A stunning new graphic novel series from a prodigiously talented team led by the creator of Line of Duty. DS-5, a biologically enhanced law enforcement marshal, has embarked upon his final mission.
His best years behind him, he must return to the ISS Houston where he will be decommissioned.
As his body is lowered into the tank which will see him permanently retired, a huge explosion rips through the space station.
Using the skills he has honed over a lifetime spent trying to bring order to the lawless frontier settlements of space, he manages to use an escape pod to reach nearby Titan.
Once there he sets about investigating the cause of the explosion; an investigation into mass murder which quickly becomes embroiled with a parallel missing persons case being run by local law enforcement.
His inquiries will lead him all the way back to earth where he will uncover corporate malpractice and political corruption on a truly galactic scale. Mercurio, Puwanarajah and Navarro have taken the police procedural genre and sent it into orbit.
Stunningly illustrated with all the machinations and plot twists with which the name Mercurio has become synonymous, Sleeper is a work of extraordinary creative imagination and terrifying plausibility which is quite literally out of this world.
