It’s the story of Marshal, whose father begged on his deathbed, begged for Marshal to take care of them and handed him the poem that changed the course of so many lives.
It’s the story of the town of Dreary held captive by fear, fear of the prophetic poem coming true.
It’s the story of Tino and Jack, two strangers to the town of Dreary and unwilling participants in the culmination of a fifty year wait, a wait for the Devil.

Devil Is Due In Dreary TP
Writer: Parkin, David
Artist: Jefferson, Allan
Cover Artist: Sanchez, Alex
Jack and Tino, two strangers with a questionable past arrive in the reclusive town of Dreary where they unknowingly fulfill a prophecy that the town believes will precede the coming of the apocalypse. They are caught up in a whirlwind of judgment and paranoia, and it’s a race against time to escape with their lives. The Devil is Due in Dreary is a music rich ride through the folklore of the old west. With rattling desert bones, pompadours, classic cars, and pearl handled pistols, it’s an action packed rockabilly take on the classic western.
