"Pulp Heroes," the DCU Annuals event continues with this tribute to the western magazines of the 1930s, as well as classic "spaghetti" westerns. In the dusty old one-horse town of Tiburon, Texas, Tommy Monaghan takes a contract on a vicious-though-brain damaged metahuman killer known only as MANKO. But when Tommy sniffs around, he learns that there's a lot more going on than his client--Sheriff Halliday--has let on. Seems that, in 1905, a gang of train robbers hid a million dollars in gold in Tiburon before they were gunned down by the law. Now Halliday and rival gang boss Luis Santiago are scrapping for the million, but the scrap is one sided: Santiago has Manko on his side. Enter Tommy "Hitman" Monaghan to even the score...and spill some blood on the barroom floor.
Tommy heads west and gets involved with a race for cash. It turns out that a Wild West mass graveyard is being moved and somewhere, in one of the thousands of coffins, is a fortune in money. Corrupt developers and murderous police officers are fighting and dying to get their hands on it.
