A graphic novel by a lifelong motorcycle club member, inspired by the secrets of one percenters.Phil Cross has been a Hells Angel for over 40 years. In the world of outlaw motorcycle clubs, there are many stories that can't be told, for a variety of reasons, but they have spurred Phil's imagination to create a fictional story inspired by real events.One-percenter antiheroes populate these pages - tougher and wilder than any character ever played by Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, or Marlon Brando. The guys in the tales Phil spins might remind you of Easy Rider and The Wild One, but the hard glint in their eyes proves that they are based on the real deal.Illustrator Ronn Sutton provides stunning visuals to bring Phil's stories to life. These bikers aren't going to ride off into the sunset any time soon.

"Phil Cross takes his decades of experience with biker gangs and turns it into a graphic novel that allows readers to take a peek a what it's really like. Lucifer's Sword MC certainly doesn't pull any punches when it comes to gritty realism. Though the story is set in the 1960's, it is a very modern tale of drugs, sex, and fighting to the death. You won't find any sugar coating in the story telling here, and as such readers can expect raw language, nudity, and violence, although they certainly aren't the main focus of the story. Rather, it's a tale of brothers, sticking together through it all. It often comes across a little bit melodramatic and even a little cheesy, but overall it does give readers a sense of both the cameradarie and violence inherit in a life on the fringes." - GamesFiends.com
