From the Publisher:
Harlan Ellison, science fiction's brightest luminary, has joined forces with multi-award winning artist Paul Chadwick, creator of the incomparable Concrete, to bring you SEVEN AGAINST CHAOS, a graphic novel that is singular, powerful and unpredictable. This extraordinary odyssey of mystery and adventure will take you to the rim of reality and beyond.
In a distant future, Earth is in grave danger: The fabric of reality itself in unraveling, leading to catastrophic natural disasters, displaced souls appearing from bygone eras, and sudden, shocking cases of spontaneous combustion. The only hope for Earth's survival is a force of seven warriors, each with his or her special abilities. But can these alien Seven Samurai learn to get along in time to find the source of the gathering chaos and save all of reality?
Harlan Ellison is one of the most prolific and outspoken writers in America, having written and/or edited more than 70 books, and written over 1,700 shorter pieces. Commonly thought of as a science fiction writer, although that only makes up a small percentage of his published work, Ellison has written mainstream fiction, horror, screenplays and teleplays, criticism, newspaper columns, and he has even hosted call-in radio shows. Associated with the development of American science fiction in the 1950s, Ellison was a roommate of Robert Silverberg when both were working at New York pulp magazines writing short stories for a living. Early on though, Ellison showed interest outside of the field of genre writing--his first novel, RUMBLE, was based on his experiences as a member of a New York street gang. He is known to movie audiences as the source for the post-apocalyptic thriller A BOY AND HIS DOG--based on his 1969 Nebula Award-winning short story--and the box-office smash THE TERMINATOR--which was based on two of his stories, "Demon With A Glass Hand" and "Soldier". Still holding a strong fan base in the science fiction community, Ellison is one of the few writers with an sf background who has achieved critical success in non-genre writing.
