Red Light Properties: Yemaya’s Kiss

Masks and Mobsters #6
Joshua Williamson, Writer
Justin Greenwood, Artist
$.99 – Ages 15+ – What makes a hero in Golden City? Is it putting on a mask? Saving the day? Or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time? A mobster from the past returns with a scarred face, asking those same questions and will kill anyone to get answers.
High Crimes #1
Christopher Sebela, Writer
Ibrahim Moustafa, Artist
$.99 – Ages 17+
People die every year on Mount Everest. This year is going to be murder.
Living in the bleak majesty of Kathmandu, Zan Jensen is an American expatriate on the run from a scandalous past. Working for a fly-by-night adventure consulting service, Zan escorts tourists and thrill-seekers up the Himalayas’ tallest and deadliest peaks. Along with Haskell Price, fellow climbing guide and mentor, the two partner up in a more sinister line of work: high-altitude grave robbing.
Stripping the bodies they find left at deadly altitudes of personal effects and right hands, Zan and Haskell shake down the families and friends of the dead for a hefty body return fee. When Price stumbles across the decades-old corpse of Sullivan Mars below the peak of Mount Everest, it puts the partners in the crosshairs of a global mystery that someone is all too willing to kill to keep secret.
The first chapter of a new crime thriller that stretches from rural America to the roof of the world from Christopher Sebela (Screamland: Death of the Party, Captain Marvel) and Ibrahim Moustafa (The Pound: Ghoul’s Night Out).
