New Orleans. The Big Easy. The membrane between our world and the underworld has always been a little thinner here.

A doctor who is devoured by demons wearing New Orleans P.D. badges. Demons who work for someone — or something –that’s descended on the Big Easy and doesn’t give a damn who Hellstorm or his father is. Something that’s harvesting body parts in a furious race toward unspeakable purposes. With art by Russell Braun and Klaus Janson. Covers by Arthur Suydam.
