With an angel at his side, Dave can see the demons that have infiltrated our world… and they all have to die! But these ‘demons’ are mostly Dave’s co-workers at the office or people that annoy Dave in some way, leading him to believe that he’s gone totally insane. Or has he? Now Dave must fight to survive and find out the truth… is he a whacked out mass murderer, or the last hope the world has against the forces of Hell?

story MARK KIDWELL
art JOHN CHOINS
covers FRANK FRAZETTA, JOHN CHOINS & NAT JONES
MARK KIDWELL (FRANK FRAZETTA’S DARK KINGDOM) and JOHN CHOINS (GRAVESLINGER) team up for the first Frazetta Weatern!
In the fall of 1876, three months after the murder of Wild Bill Hickock, another legend rode into Deadwood, South Dakota.
The dime novels said he was fast with a six-gun and faster with the ladies- said he’d killed more men than he could count. They called him the FREEDOM KID.
Sometimes, the pen is indeed mightier than the sword…
…and a LEGEND is a hard thing to live up to.
