Vengeance Comics

In a well known city of America, constant crime raged. Evil lurked in the streets and in every building it could find. Gangs tried to rule the city; cops were scarce and hard to find. Citizens were dying trying to take the law into their own hands. The Government does their best to control this crime rate, but with wars across the world it is impossible. It would seem that no one was here to fight the war in their own home.....

Of course..... it's no longer............. "Sweet Home Chicago."

Vengeance Comics, is the first comic to be published under Ransom Comics. They are looking forward to publishing many comics and becoming known across the world. For more information visit Http://vengeancecomics.wix.com/ransomcomics.
