Set in a mildly post-apolocalyptic urban landscape a grim, hooded reaper without scythe but with massive broadsword has come to gather…souls…body parts from the inhabitants. We’re not quite sure at this stage. His first victim is Mr. Cogan who, before he dies, tells a bartender that he was part of the biggest war ever. Is this a clue? Maybe the blue symbols on the reaper’s paper and Cogan’s hat are a clue. One way or another, something has descended on this town and we are kept in the dark.
The only darkness is the storyline as this comic bursts with city glow. Imagine Las Vegas only not so colourful. This urban landscape is always lit with a warm eerie glow, casting shadows for the reaper to hide. The cast are quirky and bizarre. Rumble looks like it’s going to be fun.
