A Man Named Hawken
Benjamin Truman & Timothy Truman (w) • Timothy Truman (a & c)
Once there was an Old Man who rode a blind mule on The Road of Death.
Scalp-hunter, raider, killer-for- hire: Kit Hawken has been a bad man for most of his long life. Scalped, tortured, and left for dead by the mysterious order called The Ring, Hawken returns, seeking vengeance… aided by Shanghai Mary, a shrewd, opium dealing brothel manager… trailed by Sombre, the deformed, psychotic murderer who was once Kit Hawken’s protege… and surrounded by the ghosts of every person he’s ever killed! Are the phantoms real, or illusions from Hawken’s blood- soaked past?
