The penultimate issue of Dynamite’s Obey Me is hitting stores on July 3. In issue #4, Vanessa and Monty are sent to investigate the disappearance of a researcher that was working for their boss on a mysterious project. Upon their arrival to the researchers’ private quarters, they are suddenly assaulted by a group called the Crusaders, servants of the Angels looking for the lost Saint. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to them they’re being watched closely by the Iron Eagle Mercenaries, a group that they’ve encountered earlier who seem to have some connection to the missing associate of Ammon.
Written by Mario Mentasti and featuring art by Ben Herrera and Emmanuel Ordaz Torres, the limited series is based on the action game for PC and consoles of the same name. The series is set during a millennial conflict where the forces of Heaven and Hell are consistently waging war in the Material Realm using servants and mortals as proxies. Vanessa Held is a low-ranking lesser demon serving Ammon, the Archduke of Greed. She and her Hellhound companion Monty take part in missions to further her boss’ plans while collecting the souls of those who had sold their soul to him.
