It’s the time of the wild west, gunslingers, Indian tribes, and supernatural creatures up to no good. Anna is a woman with extraordinary powers. Braden is the poor bloke helping her. Together, they hunt the supernatural.

This story introduces us to Braden and how he managed to get into the dire circumstance he’s currently in. It involves the husband’s murdering of his wife under the bewitchment of a demon seeking to bear a child. Anna knows so much about demons, but doesn’t seem to know where it comes from.

They find the demon right after the birth of her child and the fighting begins, Braden using his two guns to shoot the turned companions until Anna is able to banish the demon back to hell. During the battle, Braden was stabbed in the gut with a knife.

After which, Anna notices the knife protruding from Braden’s gut, and also part ways with the demon baby and it’s father to seek aid from the healer of a nearby Indian tribe. Thus, bringing us to the beginning of the story.

This wasn’t a bad preview. It had lots of action and Anna is a pretty interesting character. I’d like to know more about her, where her powers and knowledge come from. And while Braden told us he had to get her out of her home town, we don’t why or how that came to pass. Hopefully all my curiosities will be satisfied with future issues. I do know that the ad in the back eludes to some answers.

Witness the beginning

The art is definitely not a strong point, but it isn’t too bad. After dealing with 1001 Arabian Nights, I think I should be able to deal with this. It’s still pleasing enough, but part of me wants more from it. It’ just seem thick and chunky.

I’m going to take my chances with this and see how it goes.
