Death Rattle is the first book in a new series of pulp western stories following the (mis)adventures of a drunken, one-eyed bounty killer named Patch Gunn.

Written by D.G. Bell (the Ends Meat series) and beautifully illustrated by Jake Smithies, Death Rattle is destined to become a collector’s item for all fans of pulp storytelling and classic western iconography.
84-page A6 paperback on 120gsm paper with a 300 gsm FULL COLOUR cover.
“When one-eyed bounty hunter Patch Gunn hunts down a wanted killer, the
trail leads him to the seemingly idyllic town of Gladstone.
But looks can be deceiving. Trouble is coming, riding in hard, and the desperate townsfolk of Gladstone need help. Reluctantly and against his better judgment, Patch finds himself standing between $36,000 of gold and the notorious outlaw Scar Manning and his men.
Outnumbered and outgunned, Patch would have to be crazy to face down these odds.
