Written by Sheldon Allen and Illustrated by Armin Ozdic  
Full Color, 32 pages, $3.99
The world’s deadliest contract killer just received his next target: A man some believe to be the modern Jesus Christ. Lucas Blank, a gun for hire, finds himself contracted by a powerful NGO to execute a figure known only as the Messiah, who recently stopped a Los Angeles race riot with a single word. Lucas is a professional and it’s just another job until he has his finger on the trigger and is about to complete the job, that is, until the Messiah sees him and he suffers a crisis of conscience. Failing his contract, the assassin becomes the target as Lucas begins to believe that maybe the Messiah is exactly who he claims to be and the NGO becomes more desperate than ever to see the Messiah dead at any costs, including sacrificing those that Lucas holds most dear. One bullet. One kill. A billion consequences.
