As the superflu known as “Captain Trips” continues to spread across America, the lives of pour souls such as Larry Underwood and Frannie Goldsmith can’t help, but be affected by it.  And as the media begins to catch wind of rumors about chemical warfare and bubonic plague, the actions of the American government begin to devolve, local and global legal systems start to deteriorate, and two wild and crazy outlaws–Lloyd Henreid and Poke Freeman–decide to take advantage of the situation, wreaking a path of destruction through the American southwest!  It’s murder and mayhem, Stephen King-style, in the next chapter of the epic struggle between good and evil!  Plus, a stunningly visceral regular cover and sketch variant cover from Bermejo and the third of five connecting variant covers from Perkins – this is a must for any King fan!
