Sandman Slim has a problem. It's the end of the world...and it's partly his fault.

The Angra Om Ya once owned our universe--before God betrayed them and stole it for himself--and are about to return. Even the tiniest fragment of them is unbelievably destructive. God might have the power to fight them Himself, except that God had a nervous breakdown and split into five different individuals, one of whom is absolutely dead.

Now it's up to Stark (aka Sandman Slim), his demonic girlfriend, a helpful piece of God (currently in charge of Hell), and a handful of others to prevent the apocalypse. Good luck with that.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Being a half-human, half-angel nephilim with a bad rep and a worse attitude--not to mention temporarily playing Lucifer--James Stark aka Sandman Slim has made a few enemies. None, though, are as fearsome as the vindictive Angra Om Ya—the old gods. But their imminent invasion is only one of Stark's problems right now. LA is descending into chaos, and a new evil--the Wildfire Ripper--is stalking the city.

No ordinary killer, The Ripper takes Stark deep into a conspiracy that stretches from Earth to Heaven and Hell. He's also the only person alive who may know how to keep the world from going extinct. The trouble is, he's also Stark's worst enemy ... the only man in existence Stark would enjoy killing twice.
