The Third Testament Universe
The Book of Jessica exists within MWP Comics' Third Testament Universe:
The Battle of Armageddon has come and gone but it was not what humankind expected. In the end the seraphim, archangels, and high demons were either killed in the Battle of the Seven Generals or simply gave up and left. There was no rapture, no day of jubilee...only destruction.
In the aftermath, humans possessed by lower demons and the risen dead stalk the charred landscape devouring souls and flesh alike. In addition to the supernatural evil haunting the world, human scavengers and petty warlords fight over the scraps, challenging even demons in their savagery.
Who's who in the Apocalypse
Guardians: Given increased speed and anointed swords capable of killing all but high demons, this group acts as the watchdogs that defend the citadels holding the last remnants of civilization.
Rangers: Possessing stealth and deadly speed, Rangers scout the wastelands for intelligence, supplies, and worthy survivors.
Bishops: Chosen for their bravery and leadership in the first days of the Apocalypse, Bishops have the power to exercise lower demons and the will to do what must be done in order for those under their care to survive.
Relic Holders: These powerful heroes work outside of the normal hierarchies of the warrior and Bishop classes. Given tokens of immense power by the seraphim just prior to the Apocalypse, they carry the weight and pain of their gifts as they forge their own paths to restore the world for mankind.
'Sessed: Humans possessed by lower level demons.
Ghouls: The impure dead, risen during the first days of the Apocalypse. When not serving high demons, they roam the land in search of human flesh.
High demons: Following the hierarchy of the angels, these are powerful minions of the Dark Lord, each with their own special powers and desires.
The Book of Jessica: Issue 3
Issue 3 picks up where Issue 2 left off with our hero, Jessica, as she decides to take the fight to the enemy, leading an assault against the scavenger, Olos.
During the battle, however, Jessica learns there may be more to Olos than meets the eye.
