Edited by Jason Franks.

PRETTY BIRD When Scowlin’ Joe Brinks dies and leaves a shotgun shack to his hated enemy, rival bluesman Jeremy Lavois figures the old buzzard is trying to make peace from beyond the grave. He’s half right… 10 pages, written by Jason Franks and illustrated by Richard Butler.

CHALX Alejandro Fuentes isn’t the first gangster to beat a murder rap. What’s unusual about his situation is that his enemies are the one who paid off the judge… because they want him for themselves. The lyalorisha priestess has laid a curse upon him, but Alej is more immediately concerned about her gunmen. 10 pages, written by Jason Franks, illustrated by Brendan Halyday. THE DEVIL’S VINTNER On their way home from a night on the town, Jack and Rodney pull over for a pit stop outside an abandoned factory where bad things are rumored to have happened. 12 pages, written by Jason Franks, illustrated by Renan L’Hopsum’.
