The story is set thirty-eight years after the fall of civilization in New York. The central character is Veto Skreemer, an imposing giant in an age when giants are near obsolete. His story is narrated by Peter Finnegan as he looks back on both Veto’s life and how it intersects with the lives of the Finnegan family, contrasting the formers’ rise to power with the latter’s struggle to survive.
Brett Ewins, in the foreword to the book, explains that Skreemer has two distinct inspirations. The first is gangster films, specifically Once Upon a Time in America and The Long Good Friday, and the second is James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake.
The series has been collected into a trade paperback:
