“In the midst of a planetary crisis for food and fuel, a vast ecological cataclysm has spawned "The Enormous," massive beasts unlike anything ever witnessed. Displaced from atop the food-chain, humankind struggles to stave off extinction, and a shattered society scrambles for refuge in the wake of the monstrous rampage. Amidst the ashes of Phoenix, Arizona, Ellen Grace, a former school teacher who lost everything in the monstrous uprising, leads a search and rescue team into the ruins of the city in hopes of locating children orphaned by the cataclysm. But not all the remaining humans think alike, and in a world dominated by monsters, man is still the most dangerous animal of all. Collects issues #1-6.”
