WELCOME ABOARD the next generation of pulp adventure! Acclaimed cartoonists Zander Cannon (The Replacement God, Top 10) and Kevin Cannon (Far Arden) have joined forces to launch a new kind of adventure comic: a digital comics magazine, serializing two massive graphic novels and packed with extras, delivered to your screen for $1.99 per month.
It all begins in this 122-page double-stuffed first issue. First: Zander Cannon presents HECK, the story of washed-up high school football hero Hector Hammarskjöld, who returns to his hometown for his father’s funeral… only to discover a portal to the underworld! Then: following the smash success of his first graphic novel FAR ARDEN, Kevin Cannon returns with an all-new saga of that Arctic crusty sea-dog Army Shanks, as he encounters the mysterious CRATER XV! In a world of thin plotting, price-gouging, and trade-waiting, two cartoonists are here to fly the flag for two-fisted action and page-turning thrills! Grab DOUBLE BARREL today and load up on adventure!
AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD NOW! GRAB IT VIA COMIXOLOGY, APPLE iBOOKS, OR COMICS+ BY iVERSE!

They approached upcoming British writer Richard Elms to set the story in comic form and The Ballad of Emmerson Lonestar came to life. The story of a wandering musician, to long on the road, just barely scraping by from gig to gig and longing for his lost childhood sweetheart.
