Young Vimal is an outcast, constantly bullied and brutalized by his peers. Having never met his father, he has been told by his schoolmates that hes the horrific offspring of a demon that impregnated his noble mother. When he accidentally awakens Jara, an actual demon of sinister beauty and malevolent power, from a centuries-long slumber, his life takes a turn for the evil. Fed by the boys anger and pain, Jara twists the trauma into a thirst for vengeance, offering him a magic powder with which to exact revenge on his tormentors. But such gifts come with a price... This original tale is the first East-meets-West collaboration between British comics master Mike Carey (X-Men, Lucifer, Unwritten) and Indian writer Samit Basu (Devi, Tall Tales).
