Summary (From the publisher):

With this chilling collection of stories and poems, James O'Barr -- the creator of The Crow -- and Ed Kramer host an ominous array of interpretations of the gothic phenomenon by acclaimed writers well aquainted with the dark side. Here a resurrected gunslinger gets a final showdown with his archenemy... A tormented rogue cop literally fights fire with fire... A serial killer turned government assassin takes three abused children under his savage wing... A wise talking crow guides the vengeful hand of a murdered girl's lover... and much more.

Featuring illustrations by Rob Alexander, Rick Berry, Tim Bradstreet, Dan Brereton, Thomas Canty, Bob Eggleton, Phil Hale, Scott Hampton, Valena Lakey Lindahn, Don Maitz, Jeff Pittarelli, Rick Popham, Rob Prior, Lisa Snellings, Charles Vess, Ron Walotsky, Kent Williams, and James O'Barr.

A darkly sensual collection, The Crow: Shattered Lives & Broken Dreams evokes a modern night-world and its tormented denizens ensnared by unspeakable evil, engulfed by the thirst for revenge, and enfolded by the enigmatic, eternal wings of The Crow.
