The superstar veteran team of fan-favorite writer Bruce Jones (NIGHTWING, THE WARLORD) and innovative artist John Watkiss (SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE, TRIGGER) explores the mysteries of life — and love — after death in this original re-imagining of the classic DC character. Combining over-the-top action and brain-tingling speculation, this is Deadman as only Vertigo could deliver in an ongoing series about sex and string theory; parapsychology and political conspiracy; where the "wonder years" and the afterlife are just two dimensions of the same reality.
In part 3 of the 5-part debut story arc, a secret kept by Brandon's late father could explain Brandon's incessant interdimensional shifting — as well as the mystery of his own apparent death — as long as he can escape the relentless team of operatives bent on killing him a second time.
Concluding the 5-part debut story arc in sweeping fashion, Brandon uses his deadly new powers in an attempt to rescue Sarah from the bomber-jacketed assassins. Then he stretches his abilities even further for a confrontation with his comatose father that leaves Brandon wondering where he stands on the plane of reality.
Concluding the 2-part "Homecoming." In the chilling finale to this special tale from the days before Deadman was dead, Scott Cayce's experiment with remote viewing goes horribly wrong, putting his wife Sarah in danger of losing her sanity — and her life. Meanwhile, Scott discovers that his father's coma might be more than it seems.
Part 2 of the debut story arc by writer Bruce Jones (NIGHTWING, THE WARLORD) and innovative artist John Watkiss. Brandon Cayce wakes up in another reality, one where the beautiful Sarah is his own wife, not his brother's. Nothing makes him happier, but Brandon quickly discovers that for a dead man, opening doors between dimensions can have grave consequences even for the living.
Part 4 of the 5-part debut story arc. Scott forces Brandon to confront a series of possible realities, dimensions where death is far from the worst fate. While back in this reality, the bomber-jacketed assassins try to show Brandon and Sarah that getting killed is about as real as it gets.
Part 1 of the 2-part "Homecoming." Brandon Cayce's troubles didn't begin when he died in that downtown plane crash. The secrets of his life before death unfold as Brandon and Scott cope with the fact that their own father may have been part of conspiracy to breach the borders between dimensions.
Deadman returns from contacting his comatose father in an alternate dimension to find that Sarah has been attacked and her pregnancy, apparently, terminated. But thousands of miles away, a complete stranger finds herself either mysteriously or miraculously with child.
