It's 1866 and Jill (a white, merchant's daughter) and Hanna (a Korean-American servant in the merchant's house) have fled to the American West to start a new life on their own terms.
They boarded a train in Kansas City, and before the morning was over, they had fought werewolves and vampires, partnered with Bellingham, a time-traveling British secret agent, and made an enemy of Mrs. Lincoln.
And then the train jumped its tracks, crashing violently, and killing Jill.
Hanna is despondent until Bellingham reveals his real reason for being in 1866: the Universe Cutter, a knife with the power to resurrect the dead. All they have to do is find it.
To bring Jill back, Hanna will partner with two time travelers and President Grant's right-hand man, and battle Confederates, werewolves, lizard men, sun worshipping cultists, and a man from the end of time. All for a chance to bring back the woman she loves ... a woman who will never love her back.
GUNFIGHTER GOTHIC VOL. 0: BLOOD OF THE UNIVERSE also features the back-up tale, "Appetite for Appeasement," starring Bellingham.
