po-boys and the axeman

Of Bitter Souls 3
The flawed and bitter souls in issue 3 take on a New Orleans legend in the Axeman. The story follows the return of a murdere from 1918-1919 who sent the city into a frenzy and axed many, then disappeared. A letter sent to the press said that he would spare any home with "a Jazz band playing".
Norm Breyfoyles art has great style and perspective, along with a historically accurate color palette for the city. The creators have stated they will keep the comic in pre-flood days, but may have an issue #0 as a benefit to address the Katrina hurricane. Satterlee's writing of newspaper articles, info insets, and word balloons varies the pace and keeps the story propelled.
