The Crow

The original story written and drawn by James O'Barr. Due to the huge dose of emotions, that every frame is full of, it's a story that touches the deepest parts of your soul. Eric Draven and his fiancee, Shelly Webster, because of a stupid accident - which is car engine failure and meeting the worst possible people on their way - they got brutally murdered. The spirit of vengeance, which is represented by the crow, brings Eric back to life, that he could avenge his death and the death of his love. On every page you can see how hopeless are his actions, another culprits die the more brutal death, which they, of course, deserved, but the avenger is not getting closer to the salvation... no, his way leads straight to hell. But even that, Draven is not turning away, he's not hesitating. His life has been ruined and even death couldn't give any relief. He's got a target, the last chance to set the wrong things right... The last scene, when Eric returns to the graveyard, is one of the saddest comic scenes ever.

 

   The Crow: Dead Time

The action takes place at the end of the 19th century. Joshua is a native american, from the Crow tribe, but he left his roots, when he married a white woman. He adopted the american lifestyle, he became a farmer. But hatred and racism caused trouble. One day, on Joshua's farm, have arrived a group of outlaw deserters... The whole Joshua's family have been murdered... Almost 100 years later, in so called 'present day' of the 20th century, the city is threatened by a bunch of bikers, who look exactly the same as those deserters. We can assume, that they're some kind of incarnation of that men and they're still alive. Joshua is being resurrected by the crow, that he can set the wrong things right...
The script is based on the story made by the one and only - James O'Barr. The whole thing fulfills great drawings by Alex Maleev.
