Launched in October, Ian Edginton and Francesco Trifogli's Hinterkind is a fantasy tale of a post apocalyptic Earth, in which humanity was all but completely wiped out by what is known as "The Blight." Series protagonist Prosper Monday, who has spent her entire life living in a village hidden away in an otherwise abandoned Central Park in Manhattan, is forced to leave the village for the first time to search for her missing grandfather, and in her travels in the wild she'll deal with all manner of challenges, including the beings known as The Hinterkind.

Featuring excellent cover work by Greg Tocchini, Hinterkind is part of Vertigo's latest wave of titles, and the publisher has provided ComicsAlliance with a six page preview of this week's Hinterkind #4, which you can view below.
