Heir to the LuxArn fortune, Matthew Arnold’s company provides illumination for cities around the world, but it’s his blazing brass mask that burns away the darkness in Beacon City. A former soldier, Arnold discovered he was a natural at waging war, and upon returning home he took up the role of Beacon City’s seemingly immortal protector, the Brass Lantern. In a world where insurance companies own the police and the uninsured have no recourse, Matthew Arnold fights for those who cannot fight for themselves, pitting his guns against the forces of John Countryman, the wickedest man alive. His fiance, Elaina Dare, is the only living person to know the secret of Arnold’s dual identity. Blinding light. Blazing guns. Nerves of steel and a mask of brass, crime has nowhere to hide from the beacon of justice– THE BRASS LANTERN.
