"Mixing The Sweeney with The X-Files, Absalom is the latest dark tale from Gordon Rennie"
Dying of cancer, combating demons and swigging from a bottle of laudanum - Inspector Harry Absalom ain't exactly Inspector bloody Morse.

Mixing The Sweeney with The X-Files, Absalom is the latest dark tale from Necronauts writer Gordon Rennie, brought to gritty life with artwork from newcomer Tiernen Trevallion.

Premiéring in 2000 AD® prog 1732 tomorrow (5th May), Absalom is a pseudo-spin-off from Rennie's popular but unfinished Caballistics series for 2000 AD about a freelance team of demon hunters caught up in an ancient game of good versus evil.

An old-school London copper, Absalom has been on the force for 40 years. He's also head of a special squad that enforces The Accord, a diplomatic treaty made in the 15th Century between the throne of England and the powers of Hell, keeping tabs on the demons who walk amongst us.

Dark, nasty and just a little bit funny - Absalom is another twisted tale from 2000 AD that lends new meaning to the phrase 'demonic forces'.
