COVER BY THE LEGENDARY MICHAEL GOLDEN!
GIANT-SIZE TWO-FISTED MANLY TALES is a collection of knuckle-busting, lip-splitting, teeth spitting tales of action and adventure that celebrates what has become known as “toxic masculinity”!
These are stories of men as protectors, warriors, adventurers, and soldiers having to rise up and do the right thing, sometimes at great personal sacrifice. This book is the reaction to the demonizing of masculinity in the current soy based world.
FLAUNT YOUR MASCULINITY and make your enemies quake in fear by displaying this collectible trophy! No man-cave should be without one!
CHUCK DIXON/DAVID WILLIAMS- “VOLSUNG”, Iceland was a hard land settled by hard men where even murder was forgiven if the proper price was paid in gold or goods. But a murder done without compensation must be paid for in blood! When men come seeking Einar, son to Hakon, he swears an oath to see them all in Hel before he parts with a single coin!
MIKE BARON/BUTCH GUICE- “GURKHA ON A TRAIN” is the true story of a soldier returning home whose peaceful ride is interrupted by a gang of thugs.
BEAU SMITH & TIM ROZON/ANDREW PAQUETTE- “TRUE NORTH”, a destination and definition of one man’s character and courage as he battles the elements, enraged wildlife, and Communist land pirates in the 1955 Alaskan Territory.
GRAHAM NOLAN/MICHAEL GOLDEN- “CROSSING THE RUBICON”- A trucker pulls into his favorite rest stop for a slice of pie and discovers it’s been taken over by a biker gang.
KEVIN GREVIOUX/ROBERTO CASTRO-“I, LYCAN” is a horrifying tale where a werewolf/private detective keeps things in check as he takes on supernatural cases in a city where monsters dwell in secret.
