Almost ten years after a violent plague kills more than half the world's population, those remaining are struggling to stay alive. Only a handful of these survivors are still human. The rest, I'm afraid to say, have transformed into creatures. Creatures that feed on flesh and blood. Creatures that sleep by day and come out to play by night fall.
Gerard Way was devastated by the loss of his wife and daughter during the first wave of the plague. You may not call it "lucky", but he survived by becoming one of the creatures that so many feared. The life he now lives is lonely and empty...save for the one friend who has stayed by his side. But what Gerard doesn't know, is that his daughter is alive.
