From the very first moment he meets "Sentence" Sykes, young Jim Starret instantly recognizes a legend of the Old West, just like in the comic books he learned to read with. But his new hero is nowhere to be seen when the fearsome Clayton gang murders his mother before his very eyes. From that moment on, the now-orphaned Jim becomes obsessed with a sole objective: joining Sykes to track down his mother's killers. But what he doesn't yet realize is that legends of the Old West are forged by their demons.
1948. The creation of the Hebrew state is proving to be not exactly a peaceful affair, starting with the Egyptian bombs that are regularly falling on Tel-Aviv. All that Israel has to fight the lethal enemy 'Spitfires' are some old 'Mezek', flown by Jewish volunteers from all over the world, but also mercenaries from rather more sinister backgrounds. Bjorn is one of those mercenaries. He's come to risk his life for several million dollars, a fact that galls his brothers-in-arms, who are fighting not for cash but for their ideals!
In the late 1920s, Melvin Z. Woodworth is an author with writer's block and a mystery to solve. He takes a vacation to the Swiss Alps to try and kill two birds with one stone-and do some excellent hiking and skiing while he's at it. But the little village, so long slumbering on the wrong side of the Industrial Revolution, is threatened by a force of nature-and, of course, contains secrets of its own. Cosey's masterful graphic novel is presented here in full-color English translation for the first time: an ode to nature, culture, mythology, and a simpler-yet riskier-time.
