Synopsis

'Bouncer: Cain's Eye' Graphic Novel written by Alexandro Jodorowsky, illustrated by Francois Boucq and published by Humanoid. A Western tale turned on its ear and filled with strange characters and situations that could only have originated from the mind of El Topo Director, and Metabarons author, Alexandro Jodorowsky. Bouncer begins with young Seth's discovery of a skeleton and a pair of guns in a hidden cavern. Before he can discover the origin of these guns, Seth finds himself on the run after his parents are brutally slaughtered. Finding a protector in the form of the town's tough-as-nails one-armed Bouncer, Seth discovers that everything he is involved in is linked together through mysterious family ties. Seth and Bouncer set out to avenge the murder of Seth's family, but is there more going on here than simple revenge?
