Frustrated by his retirement from the killing trade, the Elvin rogue Lusiphur welcomes an attempt on his life when past crimes finally catch up with him. Hounded by the bounty hunter Ghost, the rogue elf discovers and joins Mandratha's infamous assassin guild, Sanctuary. There, he finds everything he could ever hope for in his murderous life: wealth beyond his imagining, a safe haven from lawmen and vengeful enemies, even the fellow assassin Cassy to romance. The charmed life never lasts long, though, and forces conspire to wipe out Lusiphur… including martial arts master Mr. Moto, brilliant detective Lt. Vido, rival assassin Lester, the ever-outlandish Purple Marauder, and a mysterious new organization moving into Sanctuary territory! Written and illustrated by Drew Hayes, the comic industry's most independent and unrepentant creator.
About the Author:
Drew Hayes entered the comic book field in 1991 by self-publishing his cult-hit series, I, LUSIPHUR. Over the next four years he published 20 issues, changed the series' title to POISON ELVES, and became known as one of the most singular and respected voices in the "self-publishing" movement. Then, in a bold transition, Drew brought POISON ELVES under the Sirius Entertainment banner, where his creative freedom has remained wholly intact. Meanwhile, POISON ELVES continues to be one of the most popular monthly independent comics in existence. Drew recently made it to issue #70 (bringing his total output to over 90 issues, many of which are collected in the seven POISON ELVES trade paperbacks) and he doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon. He currently lives in the Seattle area and attends as many rockabilly concerts as is inhumanly possible.
