In VS, war has become a spectator sport. Privately funded armies of superstar soldiers march into battle for fame, profit, and the glory of their sponsor nations. And when a new generation of soldiers arrives, top gladiator Satta Flynn discovers just how fleeting the limelight can be.

VS combines spectacular action and darkly humorous satire as it explores humanity’s desire for fame—and penchant for self-destruction.

VS, VOL. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0693-6, Diamond code: MAY180088) will be available in comics shops on Wednesday, August 8th and bookstores on Tuesday, August 14th. It can be preordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.
