I appreciate every single one of you who've expressed your support for this project, mentioning it's as cool as I hoped. I'll keep an archive of all your user names, and when the time comes, I'm happy to do a free sketch of characters for each of you!
Just to keep it all together... here's the storyline synopsis for "Devil's Trigger Finger" and the preview pages, with pencils and paints comparisons:
Synopsis- “Devil’s Trigger Finger”
Written by Sean and Matthew Kohnen:
One hundred years ago, as the 1800's were giving way to the new century, Bartimous Wyatt was the Best Shot in the Known World. He lived peacefully in a small town in Texas until the day a Dark Stranger came calling. The Devil had come to challenge Bartimous to a shooting contest, and the loser would have to cut off his Trigger Finger, never to shoot again. With a little divine help, Bartimous bested the Devil and took his prize.
But the Devil doesn't lose easily, and he sent his demons to regain what was his. Realizing his Fate, Bartimous gave the Finger to his son, Michael, and told him never to let it go, and never to forget...
Now, a century later, Michael Wyatt hasn’t forgotten. Fueled by anger and the fiendish power granted him by the Devils Trigger Finger, he seeks out those who’ve sold their Soul to the Devil. With his twin Colt revolvers spitting slugs of cold iron, and the preternatural speed and marksmanship of the Devil himself, Michael hunts down the Demon Brokers who do the Devil’s work here on Earth, canceling the Deals they’ve made for the souls of the Lost.
In this four issue mini-series, Michael finds himself caught in the middle of the ongoing battle between Heaven and Hell, and struggles to save a woman whose Soul could tip the delicate balance of the War decisively towards the forces of the Infernal, sending Mankind plummeting towards Eternal Darkness.
