THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON is a gripping, perception-shattering new Vertigo miniseries from writer Tom King (GRAYSON and OMEGA MEN) and artist Mitch Gerads. A crime tale set against the backdrop of the Iraq War, it tells a fictitious story that draws inspiration from the often surreal and frequently dangerous experiences of thousands of American veterans. It’s fiction that feels real, and for good reason. Tom King is a former CIA operations officer who served in Iraq, an experience that informed much of The Sheriff of Babylon.
