The Grevious Journey of Ichabod Azrael
December 3rd 2015 | Rebellion | Graphic Novels
His name is Ichabod and he was a killer. But his death was only the beginning of his story! From writer Rob Williams (The Royals: Masters of War) and artist Dom Reardon (The Ten Seconders), comes a tale of vengeance and redemption that will shake the very gates of the afterlife itself.
Ichabod Azrael was the deadliest, meanest outlaw the Old West ever spat out, but his murder at the hands of hired guns takes him on a journey through the underworld as he desperately tries to return to the land of the living, and his true love Zoe, haunted by the dead he left in his wake!
After being murdered by the dread hand of forces he does not understand, Ichabod vows to kill his way out of the afterlife and return to the living lands of colour. No one's ever done it before. But no one's ever been as mean a killer as Ichabod before. After not only finding the forces of Heaven, Hell, and nature itself ranged against but also some unlikely allies, Ichabod continues his single-minded quest to return to the world of the living – but is he chasing a dream?
A bloody, romantic, supernatural Western filtered through the language of Daniel Woodrell and the cinematic imagery of Terrence Malick – Ichabod Azrael is a tour de force from one of 2000 AD’s best writers.
Rob Williams (Judge Dredd, Martian Manhunter) nails the narrative voice of a thousand Spaghetti Westerns as he plunges the meanest, nastiest killer of The Old West into the underworld.
With atmospheric black and white art from Dom Reardon (James Bond), Michael Dowling (Death Sentence), and Antonio Fuso (Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest), plus spot colours by Peter Doherty (Shaolin Cowboy) and letters by Annie Parkhouse (Judge Dredd), the series caused a sensation amongst fans when it debuted in 2010.
