Slaughterman's Creed

Slaughtermans Creed by Cy Dethan. Trade Paperback Cover by Stephen Downey and Ryan BrownThine is the task of blood.
Discharge thy task with mercy.
Let thy victim feel no pain.
Let sudden blow bring death;
Such death as thou thyself would ask for
.”
The Slaughterman’s Creed


Sidney is a professional killer working for Big Lenny Addison, a London ganglord specialising in human trafficking. He is almost completely uneducated except in his family’s trade – at which he is an unparalleled expert.

When he is called upon to breach his code and bring a pregnant woman to slaughter, Sidney's world is changed forever. Betrayed by those he has served his whole life, the Slaughterman embarks on a bloody vendetta - determined to bring Addison's entire monstrous empire to the blade.

The short form pitch for it would be “Get Carter” meets “Lone Wolf and Cub” in an abattoir.
