The escalating conflict between the Trust and its onetime
soldier, Agent Graves, has claimed dozens of lives - but not
all of them are dead. Casualties have also landed in prisons,
both physical and mental, there to watch the days tick by
as their wounds slowly scar over. Now, as the lines of this
murky battlefield continue to shift, some of those captives
are finding out that walls made of reinforced concrete or
unbreakable addiction may keep them in, but they can't keep
the war out - and neither can any number of untraceable bullets...

are bought and killed to be made in to rugs, their meat to
be sold to butchers and their skeletons up for auction to
the highest bidder - being uncovered.
stories feature Dawg as he fumbles his way through each personal
hell. The artwork is a beauty to behold and the scripts are
a master class in how to write for the comics industry.

for it's graphic novel release. This is not a run-of-the-mill
collection and should have been presented with a little more
