America at the end of the Twentieth Century was a dangerous place. It was a place conceived in liberty, yetthreatened by the forces of oppression and evil. It was a place where fanatics-- political and religious, foreign and domestic--sharpened their swords to attack an innocent populace whose love of freedom was matched only byits lack of irony. It was a sick place in need of sick heroes. And so theycame: PORNO GIRL, whose consumption of filth was merely a disguise to conceal her purity of soul. THE RACIST RANGER, whose repugnant jibber- jabber masked the fact that his strength was as the strength of ten. And Danny Clayton, the infamous LAUGHIN' BOY -- born in tragedy, caught in a despicableact -- who would become both the most beloved and most hated man on earth.In other words: Its Savior. Or not. It would depend on whether he lived long enough for the rest of us to find out.
