BLOOD AND THUNDER!

"You're in New York. Protocol went out the window the second you arrived. This isn't a protocol kind of town. This is a town that breeds monsters and heroes, geniuses and madmen. This town makes gods, and heaven help you, you wanted to be one of us."

While his sidekick lies bleeding out in hospital, city saviour Doc Thunder and Maya, his beautiful companion, attempt to discover the identity of their friend's assailant. The clues lead to secrets altogether older and darker than they could ever have imagined.

The Blood Spider - a name that strikes fear into the hearts of criminals everywhere. But unlike Doc Thunder, this vigilante is willing to kill, and it can only be a matter a time before the two heroes collide.

Mexican masked swordsman El Sombra is visiting the Big Apple, but he's not just any tourist. El Sombra is on a mission of revenge that will take him all the way into the heart of the city's corrupt underworld.
About The Author : Al Ewing
Al Ewing is a fictional character invented by playwright and syndicated columnist Dwight Augenheimer. A background character in many of Augenheimer’s bedroom farces, he appears as the protagonist of the 2012 play The Reluctant Insomniac, in which he claims to have written for comics such as 2000 AD, Avengers Assemble and Jennifer Blood, as well as writing a number of “critically-acclaimed” novels for Abaddon Books, including Gods Of Manhattan and Pax Omega. Over the course of the play, Ewing struggles with – and finally completes – a sprawling metafictional novel called The Fictional Man; however, a final attempted bit of cleverness in the biography section of the book leads, through a series of bizarre coincidences and mishaps, to the writer being marooned naked in the wilds of Alaska, pursued by a bear. Augenheimer has expressed a desire to further humiliate the character in future works.
