An assassin leaves his team and his violent nature behind to bond with his woman and child, risking their lives and his team's wrath...

Whenever, wherever someone's life must end, violently, abruptly, and with extreme prejudice, there ride the Horsemen. A team of the most ruthlessly efficient contract killers ever to walk the earth, the Horsemen's price is high and their bloodthirst knows no limits. Donovan Braddock, the Horseman of Death, has grown weary of being a death merchant, and desires to leave the team when he falls in love and starts a family. However, the Horsemen don't take kindly to defection from their ranks, and the only retirement plan they will accept comes complete with bronze caskets for Braddock and his new family...

This is the premise of ASSASSIN & SON: PATH OF VENGEANCE, the first of a three-book original graphic novel series to be published by Blackline Comics, the first of which will premiere this Fall. ASSASSIN & SON: PATH OF VENGEANCE has the distinction of having been created by former WWE professional wrestlers Shad Gaspard (of the tag team Cryme Time) and Marc Copani (formerly known as Muhammad Hassan). The original graphic novel (OGN) is drawn by Brazilian comic art sensation Eder Messiah, with colors by master colorist Paul Little (Image Comics). The complete story will be told in three separate OGNs, the first of which is 95 pages and is complete at this time. Each additional book will be equally generous in page count, for mature audiences.

Assassin & Son also has representation in the film industry via Blackline Comics and Anarchy Literary Management.

Blackline Comics is an exciting new indie comics publisher bursting onto the scene this year with their flagship title MISERY CITY, with the first issue debuting this Fall in U.S. comic book stores. Below is a house ad for the first ASSASSIN & SON OGN, entitled PATH OF VENGEANCE:

The good folks at Blackline Comics, along with Shad and Marc, want to raise a grand total of $5,000 to aid in printing,continued production and advertising and promotion costs. It will also allow us to have Shad and Marc to make personal appearances to spread the word about the book and connect with pro wrestling and comic fans alike.

The rewards to all of you are numerous and great, and will reflect our appreciation of your support and helping tell the gripping tale of ASSASSIN & SON: PATH OF VENGEANCE to the excited masses!

We are humbly open to your generosity and your anticipation of our story of action and intrigue, and we thank you all in advance for helping to make ASSASSIN & SON: PATH OF VENGEANCE an exciting reality!
