Carver County…a little nothing county in the southwest corner of Missouri, has an old tale.

Today, the hottest day ever recorded in any summer that ever beat down on the Ozarks. It was so hot, some say they saw the devil himself walking around.

Lost in the sun-kissed canyons and surrounded by ancient mountain ranges, Trouble was, you couldn’t The Devil ’s Pool sits, forgotten. tell him from the ordinary sons of bitches that lived around here anyways. Osage Indians called it a bottomless pit. Locals call it a sink hole, a spring, Cutting each other ’s throats for a geological abnormality, a few bucks, sellin ’ sex and drugs… too uninteresting to care about.

But something is down there... waiting for today.

Or folks who’d hunt a man for standing up to them.

but‌the hardest part about standing up to assholes is you often just piss ‘em off even more.


I stirred up a hornet’s nest.

Just trying to expose the corrupt jerks who own this town.

This is my fault. I picked this fight.


I didn’t know what I was up against.

Don’t run from Preacher, JACKRABBIT! I have plans for your spirit.

I have plans for your


Why do you oppose me?


Benton Carver, I’m hurt! You didn’t even give us a challenge! The great grandson of Anderson Carver? Hero of the county? Turned out to be the biggest wimp I ever met!


You KILLED my sister. There’s no law!

Laws control the lesser man; right conduct controls the great ones.

We govern the sick and helpless people of this county. Your sister... just got in the way‌ and so have you.

Let him have it, Tommy.






ive me, Lord, about Forg for getting in the

way of righteous men. I accept the wrath and fury... are about to bestow.”

Alright Then…

You wont live the night, Benton Carver.








Looks like we got ourselves a little sport after all.

You brought a nine shot .22 revolver. I’m surprised this antique still fires.

you want ‘em? ...Preacher?

THREE LEFT... what should we do with them?

Let’s Finish THIS!

Hold him, Boys


toss him in THE DEVIL’S POOL.


God Tells us to number our days...
