Graphic Novel & Sourcebook

There has never been anything like it in role-playing. A graphic novel that is the introduction to a new crisis and numerous adventures for a Rifts® sourcebook.

The graphic novel is a 72 page, black and white tour de force by fan-favorite artist, Ramon Perez. The comic originally appeared serialized in the pages of The Rifter® and, due to popular demand, has been collected for the first time, cleaned up, re-lettered and tweaked to make it better than ever.

The game section picks up where the comic strip leaves off, providing numerous adventure ideas and one potentially catastrophic scenario that could reshape life in North America – perhaps the world. Plus, game stats for all the heroes, villains, monsters and characters in the comic strip.
