Something strange has been unleashed in the north of England. A modern-day druid commits a series of ghastly murders in an attempt to unleash the awesome power of the ancient gods of Great Britain. But all hell really breaks loose when his latest would-be victim, Nicnevin "NISSY" Oswald, turns out to be more than she seems.
A British tale mixing black magic and horror, godfathered by Jock, one of the new masters of comic book suspense!
