Sanderson of Metro tells the origin story of Dirscherl's character, Paul Sanderson, the man who eventually becomes known as The Wraith: Dread Avenger of the Underworld. The Wraith has previously appeared in comic books, novels, and even a movie. Sanderson of Metro is the first step in a The Wraith relaunch.
"It was an honor to be invited to play with Frank's characters and to work with Frank again," said Nash of the collaboration. "The last time we were on a project together was Lance Star: Sky Ranger vol. 1 back in 2006. I hope I did Paul Sanderson and The Wraith justice."

A novel featuring The Wraith by Frank Dirscherl and Bobby Nash
Two masters of the superhero pulp fiction world, Frank Dirscherl and Bobby Nash, have come together to tell this tale, the NEVER before told origin of the first Wraith/Paul Sanderson, as only they could.
Witness to the original Sanderson's early childhood, the emptiness in his soul, his yearning for meaning in his life, his finding it in the wilds of Africa and coming face-to-face with the man who would one day become his greatest nemesis. And finally, how he was endowed with the awesome powers of the Eyes of Judgment, becoming the very first Wraith Dread Avenger of the Underworld.
This action packed, atmospheric thrill ride could only be told now and could only be told by master storytellers like Dirscherl and Nash. An epic, never to be repeated and not to be missed.
