Brimstone and The Borderhounds #1

Watermarked PDF

Another Cold Day...."A serial killer is stalking the streets of New York City.  A serial killer thought to have been executed nearly a decade ago.  Now the same detective who sacrificed everything to capture him the first time, is back on the case and will come face to face with the horrible truth behind the killings and existence as we know it....."


To many, Hell is a place of demons and fire. The place where all evil souls go to be tortured for the rest of eternity; and Heaven is the place where good people go to eat ice cream and float on clouds. Unfortunately, it's all a load of crap. Hell is just a place in another reality, like Long Island but not as annoying. Turns out that the horrible truth about post-prime existence is that the corporeal life we lead in this reality is a lie and just a "training seminar" for a career of servitude in whichever afterlife we end up in. In the high stakes, high profit and high risk enterprise of post-prime existence labor, whichever "afterlife" can procure the best and the brightest workforce is better positioned to gain power and influence over our corporeal world. The organizations that run those alternate universes (Hell, Heaven, Nirvana, Valhalla, Where the Sun Don't Shine, etc..) have spent eons cultivating the worlds of our reality, through religion and passive influence, into breeding grounds for future slave laborers in the competition to end all competitions. The best souls plucked from the "Nexus", an orchard (of sorts) of the consciousnesses of the recently deceased, are brought to their respective "afterlife" and put into the roles they were unknowingly bred for. So the business of keeping, retrieving and even stealing this precious commodity has become a very large and lucrative business and black market operation. Thus a cold war of sorts exists between all these rival existences in order to claim victory over one another. Whether through subversive means like sabotage and briberyto outright skirmishes of violence that have spilled over to our worlds, the unsteady truce that has existed is eroding and many members of these factions as well as privateers see opportunities to grab power.


Enter Brimstone.

Brimstone is a half human, half native son of that realm known to us as Hell, who works as a freelance employee of the Border Enforcement and Retrieval Department in a private squad of Borderhounds.
These independent contractors are hired by the Corporation to re-capture these souls who happen to escape their consigned fates either through assistance from rival corporations, their agents or any number of growing dissident movements. Joined by his team of human companions, the brothers Dawg and Luscious, Brimstone ekes out an existence retrieving escaped "Weepers" from the wastelands of "Hell" with the occasional trip back to our universe for imported beer, girly mags for his boys or designer clothes for the wife. Brimstone's hybrid nature makes him unique as one of the only beings of "Hell" who can safely traverse (with whomever he takes with him) the continuum and exist corporeally in other universes. The only drawback is that once outside of his home, and even though he still possesses Forza Infernis , Brimstone is vulnerable. This trait has made Brimstone a target for many who seek to control the balance of power between existences or end the stalemate once and for all. Constantly looked down upon and threatened for his genetic heritage and his chosen companions, humans as his team and a human wife and children, he has to fight every day for his right to exist in the only home he has ever know.


"It's been such a long time since a series has been able to generate those kinds of feelings and its entertainment value cannot be overstated. I know it's only issue number one and they have a long way to go, but if this was a nine inning baseball game, BRIMSTONE AND THE BORDERHOUNDS would be a first pitch home run."

"The notes of the absurd ring very true and the blend of urban horror, the post-apocalyptic world of hell and characters you know as soon as you see them blend to create one of those stories that will be quickly and quietly passed from comic reader to comic reader.."

If there's one thing I don't want to do after I die, it’s work. But according to the vision of the afterlife in “Brimstone and the Borderhounds,” that's exactly what I can look forward to. In the first issue we see what happens when a jerk of a [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
