Spill Zone


Nobody’s ever really explained the Spill. Was it an angelic visitation? A nanotech accident? A porthole opening from another world? Whatever it was, no one’s allowed in the Spill Zone these days except government scientists and hazmat teams. But a few intrepid explorers know how to sneak through the patrols and steer clear of the dangers inside the Zone. Addison Merrick is one such explorer, dedicated to finding out what happened that night, and to unraveling the events that took her parents and left her little sister mute and disconnected from the world. Now in paperback.

A little dark, a little twisted, and completely enthralling...

–Marissa Meyer, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles and Heartless

Spill Zone is an absolute must read. It’s a brilliant work of art that is easily one of this year’s best comics. Engaging, exciting, and mysterious, this comic will consume you. You don’t just read it, you experience it. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy, you won’t regret it. In a day and age when everything is picked apart and over explained, Spill Zone relishes in the unknown, and that’s something that should be celebrated.

–Benjamin Bailey, Nerdist

Westerfeld handles the spooky business of the infected town magnificently, spiking the eerie and inexplicable with moments of genuine horror, while always keeping the emotional tensions of his highly accessible teenage protagonist at the center.

I just pre-ordered my copy based on [the first] 25 pages.

–Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

Scott Westerfeld's wonderfully weird Spill Zone, with its themes of family, art, privilege, and the paranormal (so much WTH?!), combined with Alex Puvilland's stellar visual storytelling,is totally immersive and will leave readers craving more of intrepid young urban photographer Addison's story.

–Maryelizabeth Yturralde, Mysterious Galaxy

Readers will be demanding the next installment as they close this one.


As frightening as Spill Zone can be, it's greatest asset is its muscle-tensing suspense. Reading it feels like binge-watching a great cable series, complete with the same feeling of despair when you finish the final episode.

–Christopher Healy, New York Times
Spill Zone: The Broken Vow

Three years ago an event destroyed the small city of Poughkeepsie, forever changing reality within its borders. Strange manifestations and lethal dangers now await anyone who enters the Spill Zone. Addison got close enough to the Spill Zone to touch it, literally. She survived the encounter, but came back changed.

It turns out she’s not alone. North Korea has its own Spill Zone, and a young man named Don Jae is the only one who made it out alive. Alive, but changed. Now Addison, Don Jae, and, curiously, a rag doll named Vespertine, share an unholy bond and uncanny powers.
