Captain Solomon Kane is a brutally efficient, 16th century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their blood lust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents. As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But when Kane decides to attack a mysterious castle to plunder its rumored riches, his mission takes a fateful turn. One by one, Kane's men are picked off by demonic creatures, until he alone is left to face the Devil's own Reaper, dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity. His new-found spirituality, however, is quickly put to the test when he begins a journey across an England ravaged by diabolical human Raiders controlled by a terrifying, masked Overlord.
