Iris Gentry thought the worst was over. A veteran of the Iraq war, he returned home shaken and psychologically scarred, but with body and spirit intact.

A dry county in rural Kentucky, however, isn’t an easy place to make a living. To provide for his loved ones, he’s fallen back on an old family tradition: moonshine.

Breaking the local liquor laws isn’t what’s keeping Iris awake at night, though. Something very bad happened in Iraq—something that not even the strongest white lightning can erase from his memory.

As soldiers, Iris and his squad sowed the wind. Now, the whirlwind has come for them—and, as always, the innocent and guilty alike will suffer in the reaping.

A terrifying tale of crime, combat and the evils they unleash, THE DARK AND BLOODY collects the six-issue VERTIGO miniseries by acclaimed creators Shawn Aldridge and Scott Godlewski.

Baker & Taylor
"Guns, moonshine, monsters--there's a lot going on in the backwoods of Kentucky. Iris Gentry is a war veteran who returned from Iraq to find his options for supporting his family limited. Since they live in a "dry" county, Iris has turned to running moonshine for his former ranking officer--meaning the men now share crimes at home and abroad. You see, back in their combat days, Iris's regiment got involved in something they shouldn't have, and now a deadly, otherworldly consequence has come looking for vengeance. Collects THE DARK & BLOODY #1-6"--
