Experience the tongue-and-cheek action adventure sensation that Newsarama called “some of the wittiest comic dialog …in a long time.” He’s Alex Martin, the down-on-his-luck actor whose star is rising thanks to a roadside rescue caught on tape.

Andrew Cosby (Sci-Fi’s Eureka, X Isle) and Kevin Church (Cthulhu Tales, What Were They Thinking?!?) team up with artists Mateus Santolouco, R.M. Yankovicz and others to tell the story of two people that are trying to stay alive now, if only to kill each other later. Collecting all five issues.
