“I was given a second chance in death.
Vengeance was offered and I was quick to accept.”
A man with no name has returned to the brutal town of Oasis. Ten years it has been since the Stranger ran this town with malice and harshness. Even then, there was hope for his soul. His wife and daughter were on the verge of turning him from wickedness. But they were murdered, and so was he. Now he has returned, hell-bent on killing.
Feeling out of place, she finds comfort in an unlikely friend, a Sin-Grachukk (Half Orc) boy who has been accused of murdering one of the tribe.
Will Niobe discover the truth in time to save her new companion from certain execution? Or will her feelings get in the way?
Hidden within the Desert of the Dying Tree lies a town run by ruthless killers, a growing cancer upon the vast and volatile fantasy world of Asunda. Some say it’s a watering hole for the Devil. For one man, it’s a second chance at revenge… and a last chance at redemption.
<b>Would you damn yourself to save the ones you love?</b>
The Untamed: A Sinner's Prayer is set in the dark fantasy world of Asunda. Asunda was created by Stranger Comics founder and president Sebastian A. Jones over a 20 year period. A true labor of love, Asunda is unlike any other fantasy setting in existence. Developed in coordination with Stranger’s art director, anthropologist Darrell May, Asunda features an honest and oftentimes beautifully violent and savage approach to the medieval sword and sorcery genre, one where the world is exactly that... an entire world, filled with a variety of races which have evolved to suit their environment, not a decades old preconception of what elves and dwarves should be or how they should appear. If you like your fantasy with a touch of Sergio Leone, The Untamed is for you. If you think Clint Eastwood, Toshiro Mifune, or Richard Roundtree would have made bad ass elves, The Untamed is for you. If you want to see a wicked man return from the dead to choose between revenge and redemption... then The Untamed is definitely for you.

“Good thing about an alleyway in my home town.
You can scream and no one will care."
A Stranger has returned to Oasis. A deal has been made. Seven souls for seven days. Now, he is holed up in a tavern cared for by a girl not old enough to remember his past. She radiates an innocence that defies his thirst for vengeance. But there is another soul to collect, and he shall find it within the brutal and blood soaked underbelly of the town: The Pit Fight Arena!
“She has a face that men kill for."
Love versus lust. Can a man tell the difference? Two souls have been claimed, but Stranger’s focus for killing is distracted by a beautiful woman from his past. He is drawn to her without knowing why, trapped in a game he cannot win. With his guard down, he is nearly caught when he discovers the man responsible for his family’s death – Phylax, the leader of the Kraven - and Stranger’s older brother.
“I will scream for you… like the old days.”
Stranger’s bond with the orphan Niobe has grown into a father’s conscience, leaving him vulnerable to betrayal once again and leading to a bloody battle with the mute Grachukk orc that left him victorious but exposed. Captured and imprisoned, the Stranger finally came face to face with his brother, Phylax. With the seventh day approaching, and the seventh soul waiting, Stranger at last called upon Arukas, the Untamed, for aid.
Now, the devil has answered... by sending his greatest sin.
“Do I look like a demon?"
A third soul has been reaped by Stranger, but the killing proved difficult. He was a friend, caught in a greater game than either knew. Perhaps not all men deserve to die at Stranger’s hand. And so, a boy is spared – Stutters, the young Kraven con man Stranger reared like a son. Now they both have a choice to make. Revenge or redemption.
“Not even hell can hold me!”
