As: 'The Disarmament'
Jack Countances, Angela's oldest son, comes back to town and robs the bank. Clayton sees him getting ready to do it, and tells Sheriff Blocker ahead of time. The Sheriff makes a show of trying to stop Jack, but lets him get away. Then Blocker visits Angela, assuming correctly that Jack will go to her, and demands that Angela should help him get the bank money from Jack. Blocker, Clayton and Angela are partners in an organized crime ring currently planning to rob another bank, in Stockton. What Clayton and Angela don't know is that they're being set up to take the fall for the job by higher-ups (Dexter Farnum and Kendrick). When Blocker and Clayton come to Angela's house to get the money from the first robbery, Angela kills Blocker and leaves with Clayton and the money. Angela's two sons catch up with them in the Sheriff's car, get rid of Clayton, and head for Mexico. The police car is not well-maintained. The tires blow and the car overturns in the desert.

Set in a suburb that is both nowhere and everywhere, King of the Flies combines the intricacy and subtlety of the best European graphic novels with a hyper-detailed, controlled noir style derived from the finest American cartoonists. The book first appears to be a series of unrelated short stories, but it soon becomes obvious that these disparate episodes weave together to form a single complex narrative - revolving around Eric, a n'er-do-well, drug-taking teenager at war with his stepfather and, apparently, the whole world.

Eric the fly-head-wearing teenager is back, as well as his hapless mother and her fianc, the not-quite-ingnue Marie, the worldly Sal, Denis the drug dealer and his one-handed father and, of course, the loopy retro bowling thug Ringo - plus several new cast members.

King of the Flies #3: Happy Daze
ISBN: 9781606996881 (64p.) (2015) Format: Hardcover
Eric, the fly-head wearing teenager is barrelling down the road at 100mph in his convertible, high as a kite. But even the insistent beat of the Modern Lovers classic and a double dose of high-grade amphetamines aren't sufficient for him to escape the increasingly violent and depraved goings-on back in town. Three years after the release of King of the Flies critically acclaimed, eye-opening first episode, Hallorave, the concluding Happy Daze answers that final question - it cant possibly all end well, or can it?
