The original graphic novel written by James O'Barr, it started out as a comic book series that started the world of The Crow.
An epic tale of love and revenge from beyond the grave, J. O'Barr's The Crow has been the basis for two blockbuster films. O'Barr returned to the world of the Crow for the first time since the original graphic novel when he created Dead Time with writer John Wagner and artist Alexander Maleev.
This saga of violent retribution is set against the spectacular background of the western mountains in which Iris Shaw, a federal conservation officer, dies when her office is dynamited by a ragged band of right-wing terrorists. Her tortured soul cannot rest because, not only was she unjustly murdered, at the time of her death, she was an expectant mother. Raised from her coffin by the crow who answers her thirst for justice, Iris exacts a terrible vengeance on the leader and his gang.
