AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Welcome to Midgard, a utopian society at once fantastic and familiar, where religion is sport (literally) and the shadow government enforces peace with an iron, often bloody, fist.

Here, mender Haru Isuzu helps his fellow fallouts, refugees from other worlds, find their way in a new life. Goaded by his adoptive father with news of a secret scientific expedition, Haru must cross the continent in pursuit, tangling with dangerous fallouts and deadlier knowledge—and some very lovely ladies.

Meanwhile, young Tenma lies dying of a mysterious disease. All hope seems lost until an anonymous letter sends Tenma's desperate fiancé on a search for a cure with an angry Valkyrie and a slippery mage for company, plus a talking coyote with a magic stomach.

While Haru chases his father and Tenma's errant companions struggle to keep her alive, a brutal power raises its head—a band of highly undesirables (and the occasional monkey) promising to instate fallouts as the rightful heirs of Midgard—and tearing the world apart will be its pleasure.

By turns funny, chilling, and touching, this Manga-inspired doorstopper is full of mayhem, full of thrills and always full of adventure. Join Haru and the gang in the first volume of new series The Fallouts.' (Publisher's blurb)
