A man who cannot count his years of life moves between worlds living the lives of other men. A soul-less ebony giantess seeks freedom in warfare but cannot escape the tragedy buried in her forgotten past. An aging mercenary and non-believer may be the unwitting saviour of his - and all - times. A blinded war-hero barters for a mythical stone in the hope that it may restore his former glory.

All the while an undead God seeks an end to his torment by bringing about an end to all things.

MACHIVARIUS POINT stands at the centre of the city of Duhn - a phallic monstrosity in bronze. Ancient and defunct, shit-speckled and crumbling, it's many-headed effigies bear witness to all that transpires below.

About the Author:

Liam Sharp was born in Derby in 1968. He went to School at Brackensdale Junior, and then Infants School, before moving to Allestree Lawn Junior School due to his parents work. At the suggestion of his teachers he was advised to meet with the Gifted Children's Society, who in turn advised St. Andrew's Prep School in Meads, Eastbourne, to take Sharp on and establish their first Art Scholarship. He then went on to win the first Art Scholarship to Eastbourne College, where he stayed until his A Levels. He made his debut as a comic strip artist in the famous science-fiction magazine 2000 AD during the late 1980s after a year's apprenticeship with the legendary strip illustrator Don Lawrence, artist on the seminal Dutch comic 'Storm'. His works included many Judge Dredd stories, the origin of Finn, an ABC Warriors series, and one of Tharg's Future Shocks. Sharp then moved to Marvel UK, for which he drew the famous mini-series Death's Head II. Thereafter he began working mainly in the United States on books as diverse as X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, Venom, Man-Thing (for Marvel Comics), Superman, Batman for DC Comics, and Spawn: The Dark Ages (for Todd McFarlane's Image comics). Sharp has also worked on more mature themed books for Verotik, doing GOTH, Jaguar God and Frank Frazetta's "The Death Dealer". He briefly worked on a strip originated by Stan Winston called 'Realm of the Claw'. Later he co-created the Wildstorm series 'The Possessed' with writer Geoff Johns. Sharp recently illustrated the controversial and critically acclaimed DC Vertigo comic series 'Testament' which he co-created with best-selling New York based author Douglas Rushkoff, and is now providing the art for the DC/Wildstorm title based on the smash-hit video game 'Gears of War' - DC biggest print run of 2008. Sharp is involved with a UK Midland-based art movement Beardism, certain elements of which are similar to Dadaism. The practitioners are required to wear beards, though this can be interpreted as symbolic. A recent exhibition was held in the Crompton Arms, a Derby public house and alternative art gallery, featuring the work of Sharp, Ali Pow3rs, Adam Dutton and Chris Tree. Sharps next book, 'Andrew Wilmingot's PARADISE REX PRESS, INC.' directly ties in to this movement. Liam lives in Derby with his wife, three children, and cat.
