Keeping order are the Judges, a stern police force acting as judge, jury and executioner. Long before True Blood, the vampire craze hit comics thanks to the almost abstract art of Kelley Jones and the heavy inks of Malcolm Jones III.

Written by Alcorn and illustrated by artist Javier Saltares, Eternity takes readers on a journey into the realm of first century Jerusalem and then ultimately into two shockingly different spiritual dimensions. 128 pages, softcover.
