Spellslinger

  • Spellslinger

    Spellslinger is a fantasy/western comic book about corruption and the normalization of violence, staying true to your ideals in the face of adversity, and challenging the status quo when heroes have fallen short of expectations. A Spellslinger is a frontier law bringer dedicated to policing new regulations on the free use of magic, and the most famous Spellslinger of all is known as Algus Colt. Algus is on the trail of his old nemesis, the most dangerous sorcerer in the west, and he isn’t hunting alone. Hidden in the barrel of Algus’s revolver is the soul of a forbidden Djinn, illegally boosting his magic power beyond what any mortal man should be able to achieve. When Algus meets up with a posse of Spellslingers, he must hide his hungry gun or risk capture at the hands of the very organization he helped build.
