Dave Sloan has either been given an extraordinary gift by God or he’s gone completely insane.

Possibly both.

Everywhere he looks, Dave sees demons — like straight-out-of-the-pits-of-hell demons — and a little angel named Uriel is floating around after him telling him to kill them all.

The catch is that nobody else can see that these demons for what they are — they look just like regular folks — so Dave’s behaviour seems to everyone else like those of your average serial killer or, you know, mass murderer.

Rising star writer Chris Yost (X-Force) and artist Scott Wegener have a gory good time following the conflicted Dave as he figures out his role in preventing hell’s rise on earth as he looks to lop off the head of the horns-and-hooves crowd: His boss.

Killer of Demons is a great idea, executed with bloody fine precision by Yost and Wegener.
