"Gravel, the explosive monthly series from Ellis and Wolfer, dials up the action with this all-combat magic issue! William Gravel has had a busy week — hunting down and disposing of his former co-workers one after the next, to relieve them of their peices of the hideously powerful Sigsand Manuscript. Killing magicians is tiring work, and Gravel would much prefer to relax with a nice pint, but it looks like he's going to have to deal with yet another adversary, and what's worse, this one has not arrived alone! Edwin Royston has brought with him his nine acolytes, an assemblage of young magicians who are ready to serve under him once he has finished what Gravel started: eradicating the remainder of the Minor Seven, Britain's greatest Occult Magicians. Near exhaustion, hopelessly outnumbered, and low on bullets, Gravel will have to dig into his deepest supernatural reserves to make it though this night alive. And if he manages to outlive the acolytes, he'll still have to battle Royston to the death to determine the owner of the fourth section of the Sigsand!"
