Bastard's Waltz

Series Synopsis: John the Bastard is the world’s most dangerous supervillain; his name alone has struck fear into the hearts of most heroes for decades. But now John finds himself in the crosshairs of a talented upstart, and only Secret Service protection specialist Ezekiel Sweet can keep John safe from the swarm of psychopaths heading his way. With Sweet a reluctant guardian, a traitor in their midst, and John’s skills markedly slipping, who will survive the ultimate showdown?

Jeff Kline, founder of Darby Pop Publishing had this to say:

“Similar in tone to Super-Crooks by Mark Millar and the Clint Eastwood film In the Line of Fire – and featuring a striking design aesthetic and muted palette, Bastard’s Waltz surprises at every grisly turn,”

The Bastard’s Waltz trade paperback will be ON THE SHELF September 27, 2017, and will be available for $19.99.
