When their dad accidentally commits murder, plug-ugly Norville and his sister Sissy have to flee with him to Texas to start a new life. Near the town of Wood Tick, they find a homestead, good as new, but abandoned. The only problem is the well, which is blocked by big, white stones.
One by one, they unblock the well, unaware they’re slowly setting free something old and dark and evil.
Savage Wolverine #1
Description: Wolverine awakes to find himself transported to the Savage Land and labeled public enemy number one!
