“CURSE OF THE DEMON HAND”
Know, oh princes, that between the years when the immortal Vandal Savage led nascent humanity in his campaign against the Neanderthal, and the years of the rise of the daughters of Themyscira, there was an Age undreamt of... an Age of myth and legend, when sword and sorcery ruled and the Lords of Order and Chaos competed for the souls of men in their burgeoning kingdoms. Hither came Valcan of Pytharia, a warrior touched by both good and evil, cursed at birth with a demonic right hand yet taught by holy priests never to yield to its corruptive influence. After many adventures, he became known throughout the land... as Claw the Unconquered!
Yet it is said that Claw nearly met death in the form of vile Prince Gragothor Adg, a royal sadist with preternatural speed (see THE FLASH #7). It was only through the intervention of his demon hand that Claw survived. But when that hand took Gragothor’s life with a magic spell, it thereafter seemed... emboldened. Troubled by his hand’s strengthening influence over his mind, Claw resolved to exorcise himself of the cursed appendage. As it could not be removed by conventional means (if cut off, it merely grew back), only a wizard could hope to cure him - and, in his travels, the most powerful wizard affiliated with Order that he’d heard tale of was Arion, Mage Lord of Atlantis!
Claw’s quest to find the fabled sorcerer has begun... but it will be fraught with far more peril than he can imagine! For the slaying of his favored son, King Vandar Adg (Vandal Savage) seeks revenge! In addition to declaring Claw a fugitive, he’s sent his personal assassins to claim his head!
Moreover, a demon from the underworld has arrived in Pytharia... his name is Etrigan, and he knows to whom the cursed hand really belongs!
All this plus shadowy thieves, mysterious elves, and an enchanted sword!

“ELVEN BLOOD”
Claw’s quest to find the fabled wizard, Arion of Atlantis, has taken him to the forests of Sornaii. Alas, the homeland of the Elves is a dangerous place - especially for a human, even one who is unconquered and cursed with a demon’s hand! For Pytharia’s King Vandar Adg, the future Vandal Savage, has decreed that Elvenkind is a threat to humanity’s dominance... and has ordered a pogrom. The farther the Elves are driven back into their forest, the more desperate and dangerous they become. Yet the immortal King has also placed a bounty on Claw’s head, meaning the swordsman now finds himself trapped between two warring peoples who both want him dead!
His only hope may be a renegade Elven ranger, Narilla Rrab, as lethal as she is beautiful, yet sworn to peaceful coexistence with mankind. Alongside her faithful tiger, Bubastis, Rrab will risk it all to get Claw to his destination. Their journey will take them to unexpected and profound places, ultimately revealing the otherworldly true origin of the Elves...as refugees from the distant Graxos system!
Plus, the young and inexperienced rhyming demon Etrigan remains on Claw’s trail... for he intends to prove himself by reclaiming the demonic hand of his father - Belial! But will he work with the King’s royal assassins... or against them?
