Set ten minutes into the future, in alternate universes where battles on Earth and Faerie overlap, this new take on 19-year-old Tim is loaded with dystopian undercurrents and psychological horror, set against a background of contemporary global politics. It's the Tim Hunter we know... or is it? After all, this Tim is living in London, with his mother (who no longer appears to be dead). He's reunited with his former girlfriend Molly. His best friends are a brother and sister called Cat and Dog — who may make Tim's life a little too interesting for his own good. It's a world without even the memory of magic. Meanwhile, somewhere else, a magical war is in progress. John Constantine and Zatanna are living under seige — and only the legendary Tim Hunter can save them.
