Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows - to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something he's never had to face before. A killer who is just like him. Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry. But now, Whitlock is a free agent who has been directed to terminate his fellow student of death. He knows how his target thinks, how he moves, and how he kills. And he knows the best way to do the job is to make Gentry run for his life - right up until the moment Dead Eye finally ends it...
Trace is out to find a murderer, not an unusual task for a Private Eye. There's just one problem: he was the victim. Now he wanders the streets looking for his killer, his only help from Rollins, an emissary sent from above to help him in his quest. But with that help comes the additional task of guiding a young Hispanic girl out of a life of drugs and prostitution. This he tends to--grudgingly--but his true desire is to be with his wife and son and be the husband and father in death that he couldn't be in life. As the search for his killer intensifies, he finds the safe world of his family and the violent one of the streets begin to slide closer together, and there's nothing he can do to stop it.
Given the choice, Martial would not have moved to Les Conviviales. But Odette loved the idea of a brand-new retirement village in the south of France. So that was that. At first it feels like a terrible mistake: they're the only residents and it's raining non-stop. Then three neighbours arrive, the sun comes out, and life becomes far more interesting and agreeable. Until, that is, some gypsies set up camp just outside their gated community...
Great Golden Age Western Action During the middle decades of the 20th Century, nothing beat the western, and for many years western comics outsold all other genres. Dead-Eye Western contains some of the best written, masterfully drawn, colorful and exciting stories of the era. The comic reprints from Escamilla Comics are reproduced from actual classic comics, and sometimes reflect the imperfection of books that are decades old.

He frequently finds himself in over his head dodging death and bullets. These two men share a past. Although they each lead separate lives, they are both searching for the same things: happiness and meaning. Events outside their control will bringthe two together.
