In a dystopian near-future, government is a quaint concept, resources are coveted, and possession is 100% of the law. A handful of Families rule, jealously guarding what they have and exploiting the Waste who struggle to survive in their domains

Wow! I don’t normally drift outside of my Capes and Tights comfort zone when it comes to graphic novels, but I had a few of my Goodreads pals shove this one toward me.
I may not be thanking you for Chew…so don’t get too excited.
So Eve (or Forever), is the Lazarus of her Family. This means she has special regenerative powers and goes around exacting punishment on folks who betray her mafia-style clan.

In the future there will be no countries or governments. The world will be controlled by the wealthiest families. Anyone who serves the family is considered serfs and will be protected.
