Dying of cancer, combating demons and swigging from a hip flask full of laudanum - Inspector Harry Absalom ain’t exactly Inspector bloody Morse.

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

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

A thrill-packed mixture of cops and horrors combining dark conspiracies and just a little bit of even darker humour - Absalom is another brand new twisted tale from the seminal British comic book, 2000 AD, which lends new meaning to the phrase ‘demonic force’.
