Remember “Sacrifice”? Sam Humphries’ self-published follow-up to “Our Love Is Real” with artist Dalton Rose (whose work you can find in the great “Phabula”) about Aztecs and the one Joy Division fan thrust in the middle of their conflict? Well, after a bit of a break after the third issue, the book has returned with a vengeance, speeding towards its conclusion like a train nearly off its rails.
But with “Sacrifice,” the team doesn’t do traditional previews. Instead, a few panels are hand picked to tease you about what is to come when you pick up your copy of the issue, online or in stores. And wouldn’t you know it, today we get to exclusively share you the latest preview.
“Sacrifice” #5 is in stores now at finer shops everywhere. Take a look below for the variant covers and the solicit information (and, if you can, snap up that O’Malley variant!).

“SACRIFICE has moved in a direction that makes me unsure of what would happen next or how it will possibly end. There’s only one thing I know for certain: I want to find out.” — Greg McElhatton, COMIC BOOK RESOURCES
“There’s so much to like about this…it’s a strong story, the art is really compelling…it’s really great stuff.” — BLAIR BUTLER, G4
“Rest assured, it’s cool…if you’re even slightly interested, you should pick it up.” — AIN’T IT COOL NEWS
“It’s the ecstasy generation plunged into Aztec society, one young man taking a psychedelic trip to the past. A very messy, ugly, and brutal past.” — RICH JOHNSTON, Bleeding Cool
“Aztecs vs. Joy Division fans…You haven’t even thought of such a thing. Humphries & Rose have. Listen.” — KIERON GILLEN, writer of PHONOGRAM, UNCANNY X-MEN, and THOR
The conquest has arrived! The Aztecs and Spanish clash in one of the most epic battles in human history. Hector races against time to reverse the atrocities of the past — but at what cost?
Join Hector, a dude on a one-way trip through the past, the present, and the psychedelic into the the glory of the Aztec Empire in SACRIFICE — a new comic book by SAM HUMPHRIES (writer of ULTIMATES, UNCANNY X-FORCE, OUR LOVE IS REAL) and DALTON ROSE (artist of THEREMIN).
SACRIFICE is a full-color, self-published, six-issue limited series with colors by PETE TOMS, lettering by TROY PETERI, production by PHIL SMITH, art direction by DYLAN TODD, and edited by ALEJANDRO ARBONA.
