The Surrogates: Flesh and Bone - Robert Venditti & Brett Weldele

Flesh and Bone is a prequel to The Surrogates which I read earlier this year. It takes place fifteen years earlier, and follows a story that was previously hinted at in the supplementary material.

Three teenagers, having fun with their dads' surrogates, murder a homeless man. There's an attempt to cover it up, but policeman Harvey Greer manages to get at the truth. In the meantime, the man calling himself the Prophet is starting to gather followers, leading to other events that were referenced in the original book.

There's no bonus material in this book, but the storyline is still captivating, and sheds new light on the beginnings of the surrogates as well as Greer's career and involvement with them.

If you've read the first book and enjoyed it, then it's worth continuing the series.
