They’ve beaten an army of skittering cockroaches before, but the exterminators at Bug-Bee-Gone have never faced anything like a legion of Mayan hissers.
One of the nastiest adult-oriented series around turns the action up yet another notch as noted bug killer Henry James and his friends at this L.A.-based pest-control company come face to face with a bug that is rumoured to have brought down an entire ancient civilization.
Worse yet, their old nemesis Kheperon, apparently a reincarnated Egyptian god of bugs, is the one leading the hissers into battle, looking to see to it that the exterminators are the ones about to get gassed.
This series comes to an end with June’s issue #30 and Crossfire And Collateral — featuring fine art by Toronto native Ty Templeton — sets the stage nicely for the ultimate battle between humans and insects.
