ISBN: 0-9748501-8-7 

O'Henry's tragic anti-hero, THE CISCO KID looks for meaning in a squalid life of crime and violence, as the dark secret he harbors eats away at his soul like a jagged tooth demon. While he's busy drinking his problems away, a gang of outlaws take a sharp dislike to him, and steal the only thing he's got worth having...a locket with the picture of the woman who haunts his
every step. CISCO tracks them, and discovers that they're part of a larger outfit that shanghais defenseless Mexican women and children to sell to the highest bidder. Hot after these thugs as well is PANCHO, who has family at the kidnappers' compound he must free! The two, motivated by very different instincts, form an uneasy truce to scrape this band of outlaw scum off the face of the old west! 

This gray-toned noir tale is wrung onto the page by (The Discovery Channel) Jim Duffy and (Wolverine) Jerry DeCaire!

"This book captures the beads of sweat and the dust on the forehead and neck. I loved it." -Alex Ness/Pop Thought
"…writer Jim Duffy brings a harsher edge to the property with this new incarnation. DeCaire's sketchy artwork suits the arid nature of the setting and the raw qualities of the characters nicely." -TheFourthRail.com
