Wyatt left his life with the Aryan brotherhood and started a new one with his Angel and her family, who happen to be African-American. Deemed a race traitor they killed his family and tried to kill him and failed but failed. Now while they’re looking for him, he’s looking for them… and revenge for his Angel.
Based on the Repentless video Trio (“You Against You“, “Repentless“, and “Pride In Prejudice“), The Mega Thrash Metal band Slayer brings their music to the comic world! The videos and issue picks up right where Pride In Prejudice leaves off and expands upon the story of Wyatt, a convict on Death Row, how he got there and his subsequent escape for revenge; It also tells of the violence in the world that we live in.
The artwork brought to us from Vilanova is as dark and gritty as the music videos, and just as detailed. If the issues continue to be as good as the videos, they will most definitely be added to my pull list!
