Indexer Notes

The signature reads "FERSTADT". This, coupled with the somewhat more refined art style suggests that this is a product of the Ferstadt Studio rather than Ferstadt himself. The final page consists of only five panels, the remaining panel is the Statement of Ownership.

Synopsis
Initially making a living by slaughtering cattle by a single blow of his fist, Dark Eyes seeks to join forces with a female counterpart, much like Lash Lightning and his partner. He locates a calculating temptress named Madame Death, and they joined into an amorous match made in hell itself, and take on the two heroes.
