It's the 1880's, and the West is riddled with Mutations, some who wield powers beyond those of Regular folks, others with fearsome but crippling deformities. Samson Emmanuel "Sammy" Cash is a Mutation with a shady past. He can make rings of fire and shoot flaming bullets, and he's on the hunt for anyone who dares to persecute his people. Don't let the attitude fool you, though; he's a momma's boy at heart and he falls in love just a little too easily.
He's up against the forbidding Marshal Luther, who believes Mutants to be children of the Devil and will stop at nothing to eradicate them.
On his journey he experiences love and betrayal, and travels a mystical realm in his quest to save his people, and he learns as much about himself as he does about their origins.
