Walker & Sanford Greene and freelance veteran Chuck Brown.

The story is set during the vibrant Harlem Renaissance of 1924, when a fractured family of once great monster hunters face unimaginable evil that befalls New York City. For generations, the Sangeryes have hunted down and healed those infected with a supernatural force that fed off the prejudices of the time, turning human beings into hideous monsters. With most of the family members dead and the surviving Sangeryes at odds between saving or killing the creatures, they must overcome wounds from the past in hopes of thwarting an invasion. The acclaimed series received nominations for a 2019 Eisner Award for Best New Series and a 2019 Ringo Award for Best Series.
