Cover by Adam Hughes
"The Ride" concept by Keven Gardner

That "vehicle" is a 1968 Camaro, the unifying element through these stories of bullets, babes, murder, and mayhem! Issue #1 features 2 stories, both of which are illustrated by a different member of Gaijin Studios, each written by 12 Gauge Managing Editor Doug Wagner!
