"Lyrically and passionately written by one of comics' modern masters, Mercy resonates with heart and humanity in this haunting yet life-affirming tale. A small gem of wisdom and wonder by J. M. DeMatteis, with beautiful, panoramic art by Paul Johnson." — Karen Berger, Vertigo founding editor
Glorious art and a mesmerizing narrative by an Eisner Award–winning legend combine to form this spellbinding graphic novel. To observers, a 54-year-old stroke victim lies silent and immobile. But in his mind, he drifts through time and space to witness a god-like figure's transformative influence on people haunted by hatred and despair: an unhappy family in London, a terrified Indian boy in a South American jungle, and a lonely old woman in Brooklyn.
