Collects issues 1-6 of the entire SALT comic series.
What if there really was a Garden of Eden – a place with a history before the first people we know of? A civilization cursed and banished underground for breaking their own commandment to live in balance with the Earth. When an evil coal operator discovers that the “sacred” carbon can burn forever, he will sacrifice the land and the people to extract the full deposit. When he awakens and releases a hell the surface world cannot imagine, the only thing that stands in the way of the ecological disaster, is a disgraced, ex-pro baseball pitcher and a community of courageous coal miners. “Danny Boyd’s Carbon combines three distinct genres- Lovecraftian gorefest, religious picture book and political allegory- to tell the story of our slow and conscious self-poisoning.” – John Sayles, Director. “This graphic novel’s tale is a self-contained piece of world-building, loaded generously with imaginative flair and yet still grounded in reality like the wise Aesop born anew.” – Richard Caldwell, Heavy Metal Magazine. “Boyd marries sci-fi monster flick ideas with Appalachian tragedy, showing us imaginative allegory and authentic profundity do not have to be mutually exclusive.” – Chris Oxley, Ain’t It Cool News

Death Falcon Zero, a disgraced former masked wrestler is released from prison by the governor of West Virginia (WWE Hall of Fame member, Johnny Valiant) and promised a pardon if he can put an end to the problem of zombies plaguing Charleston’s West Side. DFZ realizes the zombies are created by a new form of crystal meth, funded by Senator Joe E. Legend, himself a former wrestler, and his backers, wrestlers-gone-bad (Samu Anoa’i, Bobby Blaze, Sol de Oriente) drug dealers, yuppie elite, slum lords, and corrupt local officials. When it becomes apparent that Legend’s plan is to “infect locally, plague globally,” DFZ is forced to reunite his former tag team, the Grapes of Wrath, to assist him in bringing down the slug lords. The only other problems are Raw Talent is a destitute crack head; and Professor Danger, once believed dead, is being hidden by the witness protection program – and has no interest in being found. That and the fact that the three of them now hate one another.
