WOLVERINE WRITER BEN PERCY’S DEVIL’S HIGHWAY CONTINUES WITH DEVIL’S HIGHWAY #2 THIS WEDNESDAY!

We’re super pumped about all the new AWA Studios titles, and one of our favorites, is the TRUE CRIME-charged DEVIL’S HIGHWAY that takes the idea of truck-driving serial killer networks, and brings it to life in a chilling way!

Benjamin Percy (Wolverine) and Brent Schoonover (Batman ’66) present a chilling crime thriller, loosely based on real events, that examines murder in the dark underbelly of America’s heartland.

Sharon Harrow, an elite military veteran with skeletons in her closet and a dark family secret, embarks on a quest to hunt down the serial killer that brutally murdered her father – only to discover that he is just one piece of a national network of evil that snakes across the country and hides in plain sight.

To catch the Devil, Harrow must first embrace and unleash the darkness within.
