Covers of the first and eighth issue.
The Spire is a limited series by Simon Spurrier and published by Boom! Studios.

In a future wasteland, the vast city called The Spire deals with religious fanatics on the outside and racial strife within between the nobility and the "Sculpted", lower-class citizens with nonhuman parts. In the midst of this, Sha, the captain of the city police, tries to solve a string of murders before rising tensions derail the new Baroness.

This series contains examples of:

  • Amnesiac Hero: Sha has no memory of her life up until a few years ago.
  • Fantastic Racism: In The Spire, the Sculpted like Sha are generally relegated to the lower class.
  • Fantastic Slur: The less friendly name for the Sculpted is "skew".
  • Older Than They Look: Sha appears to be in her early thirties, but is much older.
