James Trout is having a really crappy 24 hours.
First he’s in a car wreck and he’s pinned in his car as he’s forced to watch a mysterious man snap his girlfriend’s neck, then James gets killed himself.
The next thing he knows he’s in the hospital and he quickly sneaks himself out the back door.
He heads to his girlfriend’s apartment to look for clues as to why someone might kill her and gets busted by the cops, then finds himself caught in the middle of a gunfight, then he dies again and wakes up in the morgue with several very uncomfortable new holes in him.
Like the biblical character Lazarus, who is raised from the dead, it appears Mr. Trout is a special kind of fish.
Now he just needs to figure out why people keep killing him.
Writer/artist Juan Ferreyra (Small Gods, Rex Mundi), along with fellow creator Diego Cortes, delivers a compelling debut issue and an interesting concept that is sure to have readers coming back for more.
