Summary:
"It's hard out there for a freak! Like the misshapen oddities who inhabit the bizarre burg known as Aberrance, U.S.A., Agent Kilcorp of the Department of Energy has always felt like an outsider -- after all, he's an albino African-American and a former midway attraction himself. But only in Aberrance -- home to the mysterious and malformed Un-Men, creations of the demented genius Dr. Anton Arcane -- does he discover the true meaning of freakdom. When a mysterious 'illness' begins spreading among the Aberrance population, Kilcrop's investigation leads him deep into the long-concealed corners of the Un'Men's sordid past -- and his own shocking ties to it. Before he's done, there may be a whole new generation of Un-Men unleashed upon the world"--Page 4 of cover.
