Dark Horse Comics has announced that it will collect Sacrifice, the critically acclaimed six-issue miniseries by Sam Humphries and Dalton Rose, in a deluxe hardcover this September. Following the story of Hector, an epileptic young man with a fondness for post-punk music hurled back in time to play a crucial role in a psychedelic adventure inspired by the Aztec empire, the first five issues of Sacrifice were self-published by Humphries prior to his rise as one of Marvel Comics’ most prolific new writers on such books as Ultimate Comics UltimatesJohn Carter: Gods of Mars and Uncanny X-Force. Much of the book’s success with readers is also due to the eye-catching, wild artwork of Dalton Rose (not to mention art direction by occasional ComicsAlliance contributor/designer Dylan Todd, and a distinct color palette by Pete Toms), who’s since gone on to create the extremely beautiful Phabula for Monkeybrain Comics. Sacrifice was also supported by limited edition variant covers by talents like Bryan Lee O’Malley, Cliff Chiang, Emma Ríos, Paul Azaceta, and Lacey Micallef.
