Cover to Hunter Killer #2 by Marc Silvestri

Hunter-Killer is a comic book series from Top Cow Productions, written by Mark Waid and penciled by Marc Silvestri for the first story arc.

However, a married couple in rural Wyoming might have some ideas, and their strangely gifted twenty-year-old son would be very surprised at the answer...
