Welcome to the Post-Apocalyptic wasteland of the year 2045. In the first issue, our hero Brigand is in chains as the prisoner transport carrying him sinks into NYC's East River. He is released by the guard who needs saving. Our hero decides to help his jailer and a bargain is struck. Brigand saves the guard because the guard knows the identity and location of the man who killed his wife and child. There is only one problem. The creature who sank the ship is still alive and is very hungry.
