Dead West


Dead West is a continuing horror/western saga that takes place during and after the Civil War. It tells the story of Eldridge “the Chickamauga Carver” Davis as he leads his bloodthirsty gang, the Irascibles, against the North. This web comic follows the men on their campaign of terror through the Union Territories.

Watch as they unleash a force more destructive than any war and change the face of the Wild West forever.

The first installment of the Dead West series, Last Ride of the Carver, was originally conceived as a short film script during the NYC Midnight Screenplay Challenge. Last Ride quickly established itself as a strong script winning first place in that respective round. It has since gone on to perform well in contests in a number of countries.

The world of Dead West was rich and alive in more ways than one. It quickly spawned another story in the very next NYC Midnight Challenge. Revolt at Blackwater emerged as a prequel of sorts, using some of the same characters from Last Ride. It too performed well in screenplay contests and will eventually be adapted into a comic book.
