Thrillbent has made the first chapter of Empire Volume Two free to read.
The digital platform has released the opening chapter that marks Mark Waid and Barry Kitson’s return to their creator-owned property.
The series returned as part of Thrillbent’s newly introduced subscription service.
On top of its free content, the platform allows access to extra series and content for $3.99 (2.40) a month.
Empire centres around a world in which powerful villain Golgoth has conquered humanity but must continue to deal with external threats and the plots of his inner circle.
Empire is updated every fortnight on Thrillbent. Chapter two of the second volume was released this week.
