Synopsis: Mobsters kill old gangster leader before he can confess to priest. Later Don's three brothers try to find out who was behind killing. Rival mobster gang of course is on the line.
Comment: Mostly good color artwork, spectaculous blood burst on last page. Billy DuBay's story is nothing special and the end is brilliant mostly because of Corben's artwork.
