Issue 36: COME AND GET IT


The Truth? The Saint will handle the truth.
The Truth? The Saint will handle the truth.
The main players are posed for action. Custer and Tulip meet up with The Saint of Killers in the desert. They know they have unfinished business, such as Custer unlocking the secrets of Genesis as to what happened to the Saints family. Custer knows that the Saint was a man once. Custer suggests that McReady and his posse wouldn't even have met up with the Saint if the lord hadn't sent a storm to change their course (events occurred in The Saint of Killers mini series). Jesse says the lord knew what he was doing. He knew what the Saint would agree to if motivated. The lord was responsible for his wife and daughters untimely death. McReady was just the tool. The Saint hears this and then starts heading for Starrs army. He's mad as hell and needs to let off some steam. Starr see's this and prepares his army for action.
Let off some steam.
The Saint re-decorates the desert in red.


The troops spot the lone Saint and start firing their cannons. Of course, when the smoke clears, the Saint is still standing and ready for more. He then pulls out his guns and starts killing of Starrs troops, one by one. Starrs troops start shooting at everything, including Tulip and Jesse. Starr corrects them making it perfectly clear that he wants Tulip alive. Meanwhile, Cassidy is in the back of the pickup under a tarp to protect him from the sun.He sees what's going down and carefully gets out of the pickup to help his friends. The troops approach on Jesse but don't notice Tulip running for a machine gun. She mounts the gun and starts mowin' down the troops. She proves that she can handle her own.

Tulip handles the big guns.
Tulip handles the big guns.


Cassidy hops into the driver seat of the pick up, but the sun starts burnin him up and he loses control and crashes into a rack. His body is thrown from the truck and lands broken and totally exposed to the sun. His arm ignites and he only has one response to that, "Oh fuck". The situation is clearly out of control, so Starr ups the ante. He calls the President. An you know what that means. BOOOOOOOOOOOOM

Later.
