has been on a bit of a roll lately. The critical success of his self-published books Sacrifice
and Our Love is Real
did not go unnoticed by Marvel, who brought him on to co-write Ultimate Comics Ultimates
with Jonathan Hickman, before Humphries eventually took over as the series' solo writer. That eventually led to Humphries being tapped to participate in the Marvel Now initiative, this time as the writer of Uncanny X-Force
, the first issue of which hits stores tomorrow.
But Humphries' most personal work is still Sacrifice
, his self-published six issue miniseries with artist Dalton Rose
, about a teenage boy lost in the ancient Aztec empire who finds himself at the center of a religious conflict. Sacrifice
#4 hits stores tomorrow, and ComicsAlliance has an exclusive teaser
, along with two covers from Rose and a limited edition cover from Emma Ríos
, which you can check out after the cut.
