From the New York Times best selling author of BONE comes a stark, gritty sci-fi series about a dimension-jumping art thief ? ? a man who races through space and time searching for his next big score ? ? and trying to escape his past. Known only by the four letter word found spray-painted at the scene of a crime, RASL stumbles across a mystery that spans centuries, and not only threatens to expose his illicit activities, but could uncover one of the world's most dangerous secrets.

Award-winning cartoonist Jeff Smith explores a world of violence and corruption, mixing murder, passion, and folklore, with cutting-edge physics.
