Maybe it's best that Cas Russell and Moses Pritchard never meet, as everybody in their vicinity might end up as collateral damage. Instead, their respective creators, S.L. Huang (Zero Sum Game) and Milton J. Davis (Gunman's Peace) together unpack fantasting fictional violence, from Russell and her dangerously perfect sense of math, vectors, and impact to Pritchard's reluctantly revisiting his mercenary life in the dystopia called Newlanta.

Gunman's Peace

One hundred years after the Collapse violence still rages across the region once known as Georgia. Warlords fight for control with deadly mercenaries known as Gunmen, and Moses Prichard is one of the best. Tired of the constant turmoil in the Wild, he finds solace within the walls of Newlanta, a city struggling to establish an island of peace amidst the chaos. But now the city is threatened by a powerful warlord Moses once served and he is forced to strap on his guns. However, this time he’s fighting for his own reasons.
