MILWAUKIE, Ore., (April 11, 2024)— Set to arrive in Spring 2024, Dark Horse Books will present the Tear Us Apart series collected in one paperback volume. The exciting new action-adventure series is written by Jay Baruchel (How to Train Your Dragon) and Van Jensen (The Flash, James Bond), with art by Alessandro Micelli (The Ballad of Sang), and letters by Taylor Esposito (Detective Comics). The collection will gather issues #1-4 of the original series and include bonus content such as a cover gallery and sketchbook material.

In a world of blood and cruelty, two teenagers find humanity in each other.

Deep in the Canadian wilderness, a vicious cult, dedicated to an ideology of pain, trains children to become deadly assassins. In the midst of this world of cruelty, two teenagers break the cardinal rule—by falling in love. The only thing standing between them and happily ever after is an army of murderers with a taste for blood.

Tear Us Apart shows just what lengths the human spirit will go to endure.
