HARDBOILED CORNER: THE DAMNED!

VOL. 1 THREE DAYS DEAD

CULLEN BUNN

During the prohibition era, gangsters grew rich on our vices, and rivalries between criminal organizations resulted in open war. But unknown to the masses, a more sinister power controlled the crime cartels, using greed, gluttony, lust and other sins to fuel a much more lucrative trade: mortal souls.

The long-standing feud between two of the families is about the come to an end thanks to a brokered deal to consolidate power. But before things can be finalized, the bookkeeper tasked to brokering the deal is kidnapped along with a ledger that could spell doom for all the families.

Hoping to find the missing bookkeeper before the deal falls apart, Big Al pulls Eddie's corpse out of a ditch and puts him on the case.

Now Eddie, cursed and unable to rest, finds himself caught up in the middle of a sinister web of kidnapping, murder and damnation.
