Artist: B. McCarthy
Letters: Steve Potter
This is an interesting departure from the bounty hunters hunting their bounty format. The domestic nature proves to be a great setting for the demonic chaos and the Websters provide some welcome background to Johnny's character. Brendan McCarthy's art is wonderfully vibrant.
