Special double-sized issue! "The Man in the Pit"
Wendell Rayfield is a recently divorced, down on his luck ex-cop who's looking down the business end of 40 with no hope for the future and with demons from his past still haunting him at every turn. All he has going for him is his new job. A job that involves a very large machine gun, a hole in the ground, a certain hirsute mutant and several thousand bullets. We all know what damage Wolverine can do with his claws, but how dangerous can he really be when all he's able to do is talk? Wendell Rayfield is about to find out. Written by up-and-comer Jason Aaron (The Other Side, Scalped), with art by comic book legend Howard Chaykin (Blade, American Flagg!).

RIPCLAW PILOT SEASON #1
(W) Jason Aaron, (A) Jorge Lucas, (Cov) Tony Moore
Eisner nominated writer Jason Aaron (SCALPED, THE OTHER SIDE) joins up with artist Jorge Lucas (INCREDIBLE HULK, ANNIHILATION: RONAN) to unleash Top Cow’s resident badass in the first of eight special one-shots published under the Pilot Season 2007 initiative. The killer team is joined by intense cover artist Tony Moore (THE WALKING DEAD, EXTERMINATORS).
To kill the Yakuza kingpin called Boss Yamamoto, you’d have to fight your way through level after deadly level of his secret fortress, past an army of gun-toting thugs and sword-wielding assassins. No one has ever been foolish enough to try. Enter Ripclaw. The fan-favorite character returns to the spotlight as dangerous as ever and now fighting as if all hell is at his back.
