)-- Devil Water makes it's debut in the Diamond September Previews catalog, SEP063428 DEVIL WATER # 1.
In this prologue to the horrific and comedic story of Henry Hill's encounters with outlaws, demons, angels, and religious fanatics in the Old West, a gang of bandits murder an old prospector who has discovered the Mother Lode. When they blast their way inside, they discover more gold than they could spend in a hundred lifetimes ... and a pool of magical water that makes the gold irrelevant.
Meanwhile, the traveling salesman and inventor Henry Hill is plagued by nightmares of demons and monsters. He finds his way to the rough frontier town of Dry Gulch, where he quickly learns that snake-oil salesmen aren't well-regarded around those parts...
Devil Water #1, written by Steven Barr.

Paperback Reader says "I liked this issue and I liked the way Barr has set up his story. I don’t have a clue what is going to happen next, but that’s always a positive sign in a horror story. If you enjoy horror comics, or the renewed interest in Westerns, you should certainly look into Devil Water."
Indy-Pendant said "he story itself for the most part was pretty enjoyable. The pacing fit, the dialogue was on point for the time period, each scene had meaning and flowed into the next... Nothing was arbitrary. "
