Devlin Waugh is like few other comic-book heroes. A bodybuilding, flower-arranging priest with an eye for beautiful boys and a handy way with extremely big guns, Devlin survived a steroid abuse scandal in the Olympics to become the future Vatican City-state's chief exorcist and paranormal warrior.
As Aquatraz underwater prison - home to some of the world's most vicious killers - is overrun by a vampire infestation, a loose gang of nurses, wardens and pest controllers must come together to fight this evil menace. But around the corner lies someone even more scary. Clenching a cigarette holder between perfect teeth, he purrs "You can rest easy, gentlemen. Fingers OFF the triggers. My name is Devlin Waugh. I'm here to steal the show..."
This series, originally run in The Judge Dredd Megazine, had a positive reaction like no other before or since. In the annual poll of readers' opinions, Waugh became the first and last character ever to knock Judge Dredd off the top spot as Favourite Character.
If you've ever wondered what would happen if Oscar Wilde and the cast of Brideshead Revisited were to be merged with Deathrace 2000, The Evil Dead and the Terminator, now's your chance to find out...

Very nice artwork, Devlin is a great character who has a fantastic way with words.
The combination of upper class, body-building, ultra violent enforcer for the church (no-less) is refreshing and leads to some brilliant dialogue.
Now lets see how you fare against an Englishman when his dander is up.
