Gus is a boy with the features of a deer, born in the aftermath of a plague that wiped out most of humanity. Raised by his god-fearing father in an isolated nature reserve, he is a sweet, innocent boy who believes in God and says his prayers. His father succumbs to the plague, however, and hunters come to take him away. He is rescued by a man named Jeppers, who promises to take him to safety.

This is excellent. Very readable, excellent art, albeit with the usual muddy Vertigo colours. Reminiscent of Y The Last Man, but utterly different in tone and style.
