"Alex de Campi's scarily believable premise combines with Carla Speed McNeil's unbelievably beautiful art for a thriller with its brake line cut." - Brian K. Vaughan
It was just a trip before college. Build schools in a Central American village; get to know some of the other freshmen. But after tragedy strikes, a handful of once-privileged US teens must find their way home in a cruel landscape that at best doesn't like them, and at worst, actively wants to kill them. And then, of course, there are the secrets the kids are keeping from each other.
From third-grade spelling bee champ Alex de Campi (Archie vs Predator
) and Eisner/LA Times Book Award winner Carla Speed McNeil (Finder
) comes a highly episodic thriller of teenagers in peril.
"Two of my favourite creators teamed up and, once more, showing me why they're two of my favourite creators. No Mercy
manages to push a good chunk of 21st century life inside a single bus, and then throws it off the cliff. This is what drama is all about." - Kieron Gillen

Seasoned creators De Campi (Grindhouse) and McNeil (Finder) deliver a bleak and dark-humored take on teens thrust into a war of survival, à la Lord of the Flies or Battle Royale. The title of the series accurately sums up the pacing, kicking off with a school bus veering off the side of a cliff in the middle of the desertand then things really start going literally and figuratively downhill. Acclaimed artist McNeil seems to have a downright gleeful time depicting the series of extremely unfortunate events that befall the privileged American high schoolers as they battle the elements, a pack of ravenous coyotes, andprobably worst of alleach other. De Campi's story isn't just brutal, it's virtually non-stop, with a new bit of extreme violence behind every turn of the page. (Sept.)
