the DAMNED #1 (Oni Press)
By Cullen Bunn & Brian Hurtt. During the prohibition era, gangsters grew rich on our vices, and rivalries between criminal organizations resulted in open war. But unknown to the masses, a more sinister power controlled the crime cartels, using greed, gluttony, lust, and other sins to fuel a much more lucrative trade: mortal souls. Three demon families—the Aligheris, the Roarkes, and the Verlochin—control soul-trafficking within the city, capitalizing on “the rackets” to lead unfortunates into their grasp and poor Eddie is caught in the middle. Double-sized issue. Previews Page 328, product code: AUG063487. $3.50 cover price, DCBS price $1.75 (50% off). For more info go HERE.
