Still this land stands as the breeding ground for generation after generation of Rath, each one carrying this dark past through farm lands and backwater homes in the heart of Alabama. Ira Rath now trudges his line further through the mud and mess of his genetically predisposed, monstrous career of contract killing until being introduced to a target that may sully the Rath name even further.

In 1968, the horrors of the Vietnam war invaded every American living room. On February 13th of that year, a new war began, bringing horror…and hunger home to stay. ’68: HOMEFRONT returns the series to the American heartland and the small, sleepy town of Harbinger, Pennsylvania (home of the Heralds) in the first two-issue story arc, “’68: PEECE AND LOVE.” Fresh accident victims sit up on morticians’ slabs, a busload of visiting athletes rises from wet red asphalt to become an army of the damned, and Jenny Love-homecoming queen, cheerleader, and girl next door-prepares to reveal her deepest secret to the world. A secret in the form of leather-clad town bad boy, Johnny Love.
