Ball Peen Hammer
by Adam Rapp and George O’Connor
First Second
The world is dying. After most of the city succumbed to the plague, Welton’s staying inside—permanently. But hiding in his claustrophobic basement room—the only place he knows is safe—exacts a gruesome price, and he becomes part of a collective that’s killing children. Infected with the plague himself, with no way to find the woman he loves, Welton takes refuge in apathy—until someone knocks on his door. Ball Peen Hammer gives us a window into life in a half-deserted apartment building in a time of raw love, sacrifice, fear, and death.
