From the creative team behind Cable: The End and Soldier X comes a tale extrapolated from the life of the first Black Deputy US Marshal! Set in the tumultuous aftermath of the American Civil War, River Bass is drawn into a career path he'd never expected: law enforcement. While he accepts the badge with an eye towards equality and justice, will the cruelty of the world allow him these ideals?

Marshal Bass Vol. 1 contains three stories:

First, when a Black gang earns the attention of the US Marshal Service, River Bass is recruited by Colonel Helena to infiltrate their ranks. While trying to keep his cover and accomplish his mission, he's confronted by the reality of the gang members' individual circumstances, goals, and outcomes, all weighed against his future as a US Marshal.

Next, an investigation of a serial murderer goes awry when Marshal Bass confronts more killers than he bargained for...a whole family of killers, in fact! Further, while trying to escape desperate circumstances, he finds himself drawn to the daughter of the murderous clan.

Then, when one of their daughters runs off with a young man, Bass is pressed by his wife to find her and bring her home, but the job becomes more complicated when the man in question becomes a murderer. Further, this man without a name may have greater ties to Bass than initially assumed...
