In the Old West, the battle is on. Not between bandits and marshals or cowboys and Native Americans, but between the forces of two of Hell's most powerful demons. Follow a former priest who sold his soul to one of the demons as he cuts a bloody swath across the landscape. Did I mention the zombies. There are lots of zombies. Unfortunately, the book doesn't live up to the promise of the concept, despite some very, very good artwork. At least in this first volume, the characters fail to generate any empathy or sympathy in the reader which is essential if a zombie book is to be any good. In the end, this one comes off like a watered-down early Spawn plot. With zombies.

I really like the korean style, but I didn't really like this one. It wasn't the worst but the story line is not only predictable, but it has been done before several times in both manga and western culture. The characters besides the priest were a little too cliche for me too. I will say that it is nicely drawn with dramatic flair.
