William Gravel, a former soldier and current combat magician, investigates a series of sex crimes perpetrated by supernatural forces. William Gravel, a British combat magician serving on American soil, investigates a leaked videotape of prostitutes who have been physically modified, possibly at the genetic level. Their extra orifices and weird protuberances don't appear artificial, but rather grown. For some people, two genders are simply not enough, no matter how they play mix-and-match with sexuality. People like their kisses stranger than that... Warren Ellis presents a very 21st Century graphic novel: mad, modern, and full of nasty ideas.
