From the dark mist of Raven Cove, the mysterious figure of the Scarecrow owns the night, terrorizing the British soldiers who reign with a tight fist on a small seaport village in the American Colonies. Set in the dramatic days before the American Revolution, this masked avenger seeks to maintain 'true' justice in the town of Seaton. But as the British seek to clamp down on a group of smugglers, only the Scarecrow and his "Freedom Riders" stand in the way against the tyranny of the newly appointed British commandant of the town...one who threatens to destroy the entire town in order to catch the elusive Scarecrow. "Murder of Scarecrows is fun, pure American pulp adventure with true heroes and villains. There are no shades of grey here. Reed could not have asked for a better artist to complement his story than Wayne Reid who’s masterful black & white art harkens back to the days of Warren magazines like Creepy and Eerie. Good black and white art is sorely missed in this day of Photoshop enhanced comics." Grade A - Tim Jansen, mania.com. Collects issues 1-3.
