Sit right back and allow your crazy uncle Eric to tell you tale. It’s a tale woven of gods and monsters, Nazis and beasts, good guys who aren’t so good and bad guys who are really really bad.
You see, last year a group of people decided it would be a good idea to kill everyone in the United States Congress. Naturally, this is a difficult proposition. Their reasons for wanting to do this were varied but usually came down to, “I’m not happy with things the way are.” In this way, the story parallels the real world. The difference is, in the story, the characters actually manage to do it. They cheat of course, but they manage to do it.
The story is Henchmen, that action-packed tale about revenge gone overboard. But Henchmen was only part of the story. Thing is, if there’s one god floating around, there’s bound to be others, too. And maybe those other gods are less than thrilled that the first god was released. Gods, after all, are not big on competition.
So that’s where Arise begins, with Eve promising to kill Steven for his part in releasing the God of Dreams. Naturally, she doesn’t kill him and they pull everyone back together to stop the thing they released from taking over the world.
I won’t promise you “Citizen Kane,” but I will promise you action, adventure, a smidgen of romance, and some damned funny jokes.
After the Dreamer tore through the United States Congress the world didn’t stop spinning. The sun still shone, gravity still worked, and the country kept on going.
Releasing the God of Dreams, though, caused ripples in places that should never ripple and soon Steven, Eve, and the rest of the gang find themselves stuck between a terrifying god that wants them dead and a God of Dreams bent on expanding his domain. They’ll need all the help they can get to make it through, even if comes in the form of a man that Steven has personally shot twice, but who refuses to stay dead. Throw in the girl he can’t strop dreaming about, a mysterious site in Dulce, NM, and a group indestructible minions and Steven soon finds he’s got his hands far more full than he ever wanted.
Blood will spill. A god will fall. And a hero will arise.
