White Knuckle


Forty years ago, Seth Rigal was a man to be feared – a serial strangler with a string of victims. Now nearly seventy and tormented by a lifetime of monstrous violence, Rigal lives on the verge of poverty and quietly waits for the death he knows he deserves. Tortured and confused, still haunted by the drives that made him a killer in his youth, Rigal finds himself almost unconsciously stalking the daughter of his final victim – only to have his precious anonymity snatched from him when he accidentally saves her son’s life. Seth Rigal, formerly known as the Gripper, just became a local celebrity. The bodies won’t stay buried any longer.

“The dissonance between the dark subject matter and Valia’s charming artwork plays out superbly, imbuing the characters with a warmth that defies their troubled pasts. As with the best of Dethan’s work the past and present clash jarringly, with an aged killer known as The Gripper inadvertently intervening in the life of his only surviving victim.  The dialogue has Dethan’s usual gutter flair across an engaging plot and a surprisingly sympathetic portrayal of a killer.” Piliip Buchan, SFX Magazine


“Never mind your Scalped or whatever other US thriller type comics you’re reading. You should be reading this, and everything else this writer puts out. He’s probably the best kept secret in British Comics, and if I had my way, he would be a secret no longer.” Richmond Clements, Hi Ex


“Dethan crafts a tale which takes you on a journey of compassion, guilt, hope, horror and courage, cowardice and despair– a journey which takes a long, hard, and ultimately revealing look into the nature of violence and the raw humanity of it all. Overall, this was a book that surprised me with a very different take on the “serial killer,” and had me re-reading pages because they were so well put together. If you are a fan of these gifted storytellers, you MUST read this. If you aren’t a fan, you will be by the time you’re done reading it.” Sam Medina 


The writing on this yarn was spot on. It was equal parts psychotic, like David Fincher’s Se7en and human interest about a man trying to reclaim some part of his humanity after all these years and all those victims. Dethan does an amazing job with pacing this story, as things get even deeper than even Seth Rigal was thinking.” John Chihak, The Hardcore Review


 Slaughterman’s Creed



Slaughterman’s Creed is a story of the fall and rise of monsters, where an ethical knife-edge is all that separates hero from villain. A human trafficker orders the death of a killer who refuses to breach his professional code. Twelve years later, the trafficker’s world erupts in blood and chaos. Barely surviving and crippled for life, the Slaughterman has returned to put the whole organisation to the blade.

“It has me hooked like a slab of meat. “ David Hine


“This is a tough read. There you’ve been warned. There is no holding back. No copping out. Cy and Stephen Downey deliver.What you will find is a nasty, dark tale which cuts into the underbelly of gangland London. Think The Long Good Friday meets No Country For Old Men.” Laurence Campbell


“This book is a bit of a triumph for all involved. With a strong narrative, well realised and rounded characters, strong visuals and a wonderful seam of oh so black humour this deserves to be a hit for all involved. And not turning it into a movie would be nothing short of a travesty.” Richmond Clements,Hi Ex


“Slaughterman’s Creed is a bloody gourmet serving the reader a mixed platter of gangland politics, murder, betrayal and revenge with a large side order of body parts. It’s a tale that is dripping with great writing and art. Digest it today.”Barry Nugent, The Geek Syndicate


If Mr. Dethan keeps delivering this kind of novel perspective on the world, I’ll have trouble sleeping at night. Yikes! But I was gripped from …the first page, so please keep it up!” Wayne Hall, SciFi Pulse


“Cy’s writing is very tight and the book has a real British cinema feel to it. Go check it out, if you like gritty underworld stories with a seriously dark edge you’ll really enjoy this book. I did.” Richard McAuliffe, Everything Comes Back To 2000AD


“Not for vegetarians. This book is a full on meat feast” Manny Armario, Whatever Comics
