Truog Island is a desolate place where sexual activity is outlawed. There lives Trip Yash, bored out of his mind. That was until he met Cron. After a night of passion, Cron disappears taking Trip's virginity with him. A few days later, Trip develops a rash on his hand that eventually blooms into a gun made from his own flesh. It's not long before Trip becomes a living weapon locked in a battle against an ancient virus that threatens to ruin his island home. As his body continues to change, terrifying forces emerge with the power to weaponize the dead. For fans of Clive Barker and David Cronenberg, Weaponized is a nerve-shattering exploration of sexual identity and people's strange relationship with tools of death. It is a Kafka-esque horror take on sexual orientation and sexually transmitted infections, and how we villainize those who are different.

A horror genre level-up akin to the twisted classics of Clive Barker with the social relevance of It Follows. Zac Thompson crafts an uncomfortably dystopian world with a sense of dread that mounts with each page. Engaging, twisted and drenched in gore, this is a perfectly crafted nightmare. --Kate Krantz, CryptTV Dystopia done right. Cronenberg meets Orwell in this terrifying vision of the future. --Mark Alan Miller, writer of Hellraiser, Next Testament, and The Steam Man Zac Thompson brings body horror to The River's Edge where it rightfully belongs. If you've ever fathomed Cronenberg updating The Scarlet Letter, or have dreamed of Greg Araki rebooting Street Trash, you still won't be prepared for Weaponized. --Clay McLeod Chapman, author of Rest Area Dystopia done right.
