Take ride in the old west with Black Powder #1 – a Bloody Frontier Adventure!
Set during the catastrophic New Madrid earthquake of 1812, Black Powder is the story of Robert Young, a former captain in the Barbary Wars, and his river journey on America’s first steamboat to rescue the woman he loves from a gang of river pirates led by his cutthroat nemesis and former commander, Samuel Mason. On the way he encounters hostile Indians, swashbuckling battles, and several historical figures, all set against the backdrop of an earthquake that sinks islands, reverses the flow of the Mississippi river and wrenchingly exposes the fractures of a new nation itself. Special digital edition features 14 pages of extras: unused pages, art process and pencil pages.
Published by Asylum Press and written and illustrated by Dwayne Harris (Amnesia, John Henry, Headsmash), this thrilling tale of Mississippi river pirates, thieves, indians, earthquakes and forbidden love will take you for a trip that will not be forgotten.
