DRIVER FOR THE DEAD #1 (1 of 3)

Radical introduces a new supernatural horror set in the heart of Louisiana. Alabaster Graves is a driver for the dead. As a veteran of funeral homes, mortuaries, and coroners’ offices across the Deep South, Graves chauffeurs hundreds of bodies to their final resting places. But now Alabaster must cover the distance from Shreveport to New Orleans to retrieve the remains of Mose Freeman, renowned voodoo priest, with Freeman’s sultry granddaughter riding shotgun. What he doesn't know is that he's being pursued by a resurrectionist named Fallow – a necromancer who gets his power from stealing body parts...and for whom the corpse of Mose Freeman would be the ultimate prize.

RADICAL PREMIERE: RYDER ON THE STORM

From the team that brought you FVZA, a special $1.00 preview comic for the upcoming three-issue, bi-monthly miniseries, brimming with elements of H.P. Lovecraft, mixed into a noir mystery.

Ryder on the Storm follows Ryder, a private eye hired by the beautiful femme fatale Katrina Petruska to investigate the horrifically bizarre suicide of her lover, Michael Hudson. Ryder’s journey to solve the case and finish Hudson’s work leads him to discover a truth more sinister and terrifying than he could ever have imagined – daemons walk among us. Now he must team up with the last daemon hunter, Charles Monk, to take down the cabal of ancient evil controlling the city while struggling to reconcile the dark side of his own nature.
