X-O Manowar #1 (2017)

Born under the oppressive thumb of the Roman Empire, Aric of Dacia learned warfare at an early age. It was amid such violence that he was abducted by an alien race.

With it, he returned to Earth…only to find himself stranded in the modern day.

But the machinery of death marches his way once again...

John Flood TPB

As the result of shady corporate experiments, John Flood no longer needs to sleep. Instead, he lives in a constant dream-state where sometimes it’s hard to decipher what’s real and what isn’t. A side effect of his supernatural insomnia allows him to see patterns and make connections no one else can. This ability serves Flood well in his new “career” as a makeshift private investigator, and he’s recruited an ex-cop looking for redemption to be his assistant. When the pair begins to unravel the connection between thousands of unsolved and seemingly unrelated murders, Flood discovers the one secret that has eluded him: his own past.

We all love to sleep and all too often don’t feel like we get enough of it...
