Private Mallory Grennan did things in Abu Ghraib prison she didn't want to remember. After her discharge, Mal left her sins in the sand, and went home to start a new life. But some things followed her back from the desert. Guilt casts a long shadow, murder makes its mark, and violence leaves behind a stain as shocking as a bloody thumbprint.

Based on the novella by Joe Hill, scripted by Jason Ciaramella, and with art by Vic Malhorta Thumbprint is a harrowing ride through war... and into the darkness that waits when the survivors return home.

Also includes the original novella by Joe Hill and a bonus never-before-collected one-shot, Kodiak, also written by Hill and Ciaramella.
Joe Hill is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Full Throttle, The Fireman, Heart-Shaped Box, and NOS4A2, recently made into a TV series from AMC. His horror novella In the Tall Grass, co-written with Stephen King, was made into a feature film from Netflix. His book of short stories, 20th Century Ghosts, won the Bram Stoker Award and British Fantasy Award for Best Collection. He earned the Eisner Award for Best Writer for his long-running comic book series, Locke & Key, featuring the eye-popping art of Gabriel Rodríguez.
"Jason Ciaramella and Vic Malhotra use comics to not simply retell Joe Hill's story for a new audience, but to prove its place as one of the most unique storytelling mediums." –IGN

"Thumbprint is a pyschological thriller that delivers on all fronts." –Comic Book Therapy
