Once a popular psychologist and best-selling author, Dr. Xander Crowe began a downward spiral after he failed to save the life of Samantha Holloway—a young girl possessed by an ancient Assyrian demon called Adramelech. The tragedy has haunted Crowe since, reducing the once respected analyst of the mind to a drunken, two-bit occult detective, scraping together a living by performing séances and minor exorcisms with the help of his assistant, the gothic hacker-magician called Sparrow. A second altercation with Adramelech has cost Crowe his right hand—which has been gruesomely replaced with a petrified “Hand of Glory.” The hand—which is kept gloved despite its occasional, twitchy movement—imbues Crowe with certain occult abilities, but its origin and ultimate purpose are shrouded in mystery.
SPARROW & CROWE: THE DEMONIAC OF LOS ANGELES is a 5-part story arc written by Wormwood creators David Accampo and Jeremy Rogers with art by Jared Souza. The mini-series follows Dr. Xander Crowe and Sparrow as they become entangled with Los Angeles mob boss Joseph “Don” Marino, whose daughter becomes possessed by an entity that Crowe believes is the demon Adramelech, returned to torment him once again.
Sparrow & Crowe: The Demoniac of Los Angeles was originally published in the summer of 2012 by Hermes Press. The series is available at ComiXology.com, and you can visit sparrowandcrowe.com, for more information.
