ALL HAIL GOD MONEY!

THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS is classic occultism where the various schools of magic are actually clandestine banking cartels who control all of society: a secret world where vampire Russian oligarchs, Black popes, enchanted American aristocrats, and hitmen from the International Monetary Fund work together to keep ALL OF US in our proper place.

ADVANCE SOLICIT
When a group of misfits discover themselves to be the reincarnations of Catholic saints, they must put aside their differences to battle the fallen angel Michael and his army of doomsday zealots. Critically lauded, this is the comic debut of award-winning playwright SEAN LEWIS (Kennedy Center Rosa Parks Award; NPR’S This American Life) and graphic artist BENJAMIN MACKEY (of Twin Peaks Tarot Card fame).
