Product Description

Product Description

A young boy goes missing.

Taken, in the middle of the night.

No clues. Nothing except the remnants of a black cloud, like the one coughed up from inside the Doorway of Darkness.

A black cloud that takes Axiom-man to a world not his own.

A dead world, where a gray and brown sky shrouds an entire city in a miasma of decay.

The streets are empty. The young boy is nowhere to be found.

Those he does find...are dead.

And walking.

The Axiom-man Saga is a cross-medium, ongoing storyline, however the main story is in book form.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, really fast read. 15 April 2010

Good zombie read. Very short though. If you want to get it on the Kindle I would suggest it in a moment. It is well written, fast paced and how can you go wrong with a superhero fighting zombies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where was Axiom-man when I was a kid 26 Jun 2009
By Keith Gouveia - Published on
In my youth, my favorite heroes were Batman and Ironman for the simple reason that they were ordinary men put in extraordinary situations. They could be hurt, they were flawed, and they kicked a$$.

Now, Axiom-man has arrived and though he is a super-powered man, he has limits...and quite a few. I have all the current Axiom-man titles with only Doorway of Darkness left to read (the largest volume) and AP Fuchs has created a great property here that with DEAD LAND combines super-hero fiction with the supernatural. Though a couple of the fight scenes between Axiom-man and the living dead read too similar to each other, the book is non-stop thrills. Do yourself a favor, pick up any one of the Axiom-man titles as you don't have to read them in order, but it does enhance the experience, and I'll see you here when City of Ruin hits the shelves.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Axiom-man book yet 6 Jan 2013
By Steven Jorgenson - Published on
While on patrol one night Axiom-man looks into the case of a missing child. As Gabriel Garrison he knows the child's father. While investigating Axiom-man is quickly sucked into an alternate reality in another city, that is not his city. In this city almost everyone is dead. After finding the missing child Axiom-man comes up against a very real new enemy, learns what happened to the Axiom-man of this alternate city and almost dies. This is a great new entry in the Axiom-man saga.
5.0 out of 5 stars Everything is Fair Game 29 Aug 2012
By T. W. Johnson - Published on
Just when he thought it couldn't get any worse, lo and behold, the blue guardian of justice finds himself in a cold, gray world, filled with the undead. No problem, however, Axiom-man can fly far above any number of shambling flesh-eaters, right? Let's hope so, because now he's going to have to contend with a very unique enemy that knows him from the inside out. Ready yourself for an intense ride of suspense and horror from the mind of A.P. Fuchs.
