1857. Pariah, Missouri is a riverboat boom-town and haven for the unscrupulous. The charismatic and foppish cheat, Hiram Buchanan is an undercover spy who creates a rag-tag team to ferret out evil, both an underground crime syndicate and the supernatural. His first challenge is the arrival of a duo of thespians whose intentions are not to entertain.
We hit the first stretch goal! So that means that everyone who backs Pariah at the $22 level or more will get a pdf digital copy of the book for your electronic-fancy-pants gizmos!
Pariah Missouri is a western set in antebellum times with a supernatural twist. Think of it as Huckleberry Finn meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It leans on mysticism and folk-magic and if you enjoy settings that are heavily researched with complex characters this is for you! Our first story arc was 5 issues, now collected in this hardcover and softcover. The team is already working on volume 2 and is scheduled to complete it by spring of 2014. This is more than one story, this is the beginning of a rich world that is being created, and you get to be a part of it!
