READ THE 5 PAGE PREVIEW

“From the news we get the story of a neighborhood under siege, and of health authorities reluctantly trying to clean up a mess…
When reality is this grim, sometimes it takes a brutal tale of lost friendship and cannibalism to help make sense of it.”

SYNOPSIS
A gentrified city. Its homeless population restricted to six square blocks called The Dregs. When people start disappearing, a drug addled homeless man obsessed with detective fiction becomes addicted to solving the mystery. Equal parts Raymond Chandler and Don Quixote set in a thriving metropolis that literally cannibalizes the poor, The Dregs is the first homeless meta noir ever made.

“Exceptional… A chilling Grand Guignol narrative rooted in major issues facing big cities.”
– A.V. CLUB

“Really confident… builds the world wonderfully.”
– STEVE ORLANDO (Midnighter & Apollo)

“Black Mask is known for bold and innovative comic books and this one is no different… this series features the classic struggle between the rich and poor but with a violent twist.”
