Description

Find out what happens when Lucifer's Sword Motorcycle Club goes head to head with a badass rival club in this graphic novel from a lifelong motorcycle club member.

Meet Lucifer's Sword Motorcycle Club, a group of hard-riding, hard-living bikers just trying to ride their bikes in the swinging 1960s without being hassled by the man. Turns out the man is the least of their problems. While pursuing mostly harmless fun, the group runs afoul of Satanas Hermanos, a rival club from the other side of town. Before they know what hit them, the members of Lucifer's Sword find themselves embroiled in a bloody club war. As the war becomes increasingly deadly, the club finds that it's going head to head with forces much more powerful than just a rival motorcycle club.

Author Phil Cross, working with illustrator Ronn Sutton and co-author Darwin Holmstrom, draws on real-life experience as a nearly 50-year member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club to bring gritty realism to this fictional story. Says Cross, "In the world of motorcycle clubs, there are some stories so raw, so gritty, so real that they can only be told as stories. This is one of them."
