For the past few months, Shawn Aldridge and Scott Godlewski's The Dark And Bloody has been quietly flying under the radar, so if you've missed out, here's the basics: Iris Gentry is a veteran of the Iraq War who came home to Kentucky after his service to a wife, son, and a thriving business selling moonshine out of his back yard to the thirsty hillbilllies in a dry county. Unfortunately, he brought back a few things with him: Bad memories of the war, a secret about something he did overseas, and, perhaps most importantly, a weird crow monster that wants to kill and possibly eat him by using said hillbillies as its zombie proxies.

As you might expect, that last one has been slowly moving toward the center stage over the past few issues, and since last issue ended with Iris shooting his former pals in the face, he's starting #3 in a whole heap of trouble. Check out a preview below!

Something evil is lurking in the woods, and Armed Forces veteran Iris Gentry is pretty sure it’s laying in wait to punish him for his past sins. Given his current job running illegal liquor, he can’t turn to the law for help, and they probably wouldn’t believe him anyway. That leaves Iris all alone to defend his family when the malevolence shows up on his doorstep wearing a familiar face.
