Lucifer's Sword MC

Rating
Find out what happens when Lucifer's Sword Motorcycle Club goes head to head with a badass rival club in this graphic novel from a lifelong motorcycle club member. Meet Lucifer's Sword Motorcycle Club, a group of hard-riding, hard-living bikers just trying to ride their bikes in the swinging 1960s without being hassled by the man. Turns out the man is the least of their problems. While pursuing mostly harmless fun, the group runs afoul of Satanas Hermanos, a rival club from the other side of town. Before they know what hit them, the members of Lucifer's Sword find themselves embroiled in a bloody club war. As the war becomes increasingly deadly, the club finds that it's going head to head with forces much more powerful than just a rival motorcycle club. Author Phil Cross, working with illustrator Ronn Sutton and co-author Darwin Holmstrom, draws on real-life experience as a nearly 50-year member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club to bring gritty realism to this fictional story. Says Cross, "In the world of motorcycle clubs, there are some stories so raw, so gritty, so real that they can only be told as stories. This is one of them."

Reviews

"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 "In comics it's hard sometimes to get authenticity -- where are you going to find a real superhero with superpowers? -- but a recent release in the burgeoning biker genre has done that. Lucifer's Sword MC rides on the success of FX's Sons of Anarchy (both in television and the BOOM! Studios' licensed comic), but offers a more raw, and less glitzy, look at the "one percenters." An intriguing story... " - ComicBookResources.com "It's rare to find an original story with any hint of authenticity. Lucifer's Sword, written by Hell's Angel and ex-Gypsy Joker Phil Cross, carries that credibility to the last page. Bloody, sexy, and swiftly told, it demands to be read in a single sitting. Ron Sutton's illustrations are visually arresting, their stark contrast and gritty ink-shaded texture lending an appropriate mood to the South Bay settings.... an excellent gift option for the local outlaw in your life." - City Bike "With the cult hit TV show Sons of Anarchy over and done with, it's hard to find a suitable replacement nowadays. Who would have ever guessed that the much-needed fix would come in the form of a comic book? (Other than those reading the current SOA comic, that is.) Phil Cross's epic true life experiences lend to the excitement of this graphic novel with gorgeous realistic and gritty artwork from Ronn Sutton and a stellar script assist by Darwin Holmstrom. The reality of biker gangs and their brutality (and humanity) is perfectly captured in this self-contained story." - ComicBooked "Anything has the potential for being turned into compelling comics. Here's another example: "Lucifer's Sword MC: Life and Death in an Outlaw Motorcycle Club," published by Motorbooks. This graphic novel is a fictionalized account of the sort of action that Phil Cross has witnessed as a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club since 1969. I love the gritty straight-forward approach to this book. You're placed right into the action." - ComicsGrinder.com "Easily the most unique book ever released about the motorcycle club culture. The ending of Lucifer's Sword MC does leave you teetering on the edge of a cliffhanger; giving you the feeling that there may be more turbulent tales of "Gypsy Jack," "Frenchy" and the rest of the LSMC rolling down the road someday soon. Let's hope so!" - Thunder Press "Lucifer's Sword does offer insight into what prospects go through to earn their cuts. The illustrative work of Ron Sutton is one of the graphic novel's strong points. Using black and white fits the tone of the subject matter well. The facial expressions he draws do an excellent job of conveying emotions. Sutton's drawings do a great job of bringing the graphic novel's characters to life." - MotorcycleUSA "Easily the most unique book ever released about the motorcycle club culture.
