Z2 Comics has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive preview of The Abaddon, described as "a strikingly cinematic graphic novel loosely based on Jean-Paul Sartre’s play No Exit and due out tomorrow in comic shops, and November 12th on Amazon.com and in bookstores.
Originally created as a webcomic, The Abaddon tells the story of a young man, Ter, who finds himself trapped in an otherworldly apartment with a group of dysfunctional, ill-matched roommates. Ter is aghast to discover that his new, grotesque reality is not governed by the laws of nature, and that his roommates are missing critical chunks of their memories and identities -- as is he.
Creator Koren Shadmi’s work was first published in his native Israel when he was a teenager. His haunting, alluring characters pull readers straight into Ter’s David Lynch-esque reality. On his captivating and, at times, horrifying quest for clarity and control, Ter remembers that he was once a soldier, and is forced to face the aftermath of his time on the frontlines -- a journey that echoes Shadmi’s own three year-stint in the Israeli Army.
