The life and training of a Hunter is difficult and rigorous...and John Winchester is starting at the beginning! As he takes the first step on this harrowing journey, he must make a difficult and gut-wrenching decision in regards to his children. And it's time John was truly initiated into the Hunters — with a trip to Harvelle's Roadhouse Bar!

This issue begins in 1991 and flashes back to 1982 when Dean is only about 4 years old and Sammy is just around 1 year old.

In Issue #3 John is taken to Harvelle's Roadhouse, the bar owned by Ellen and Bill Harvelle which is a popular hangout for demon hunters. Ellen offers to watch the boys while Hunter, John, and local named Ichi go out looking for what they believe to be a "Heeler" - that's a tall man in cape that can superjump. It turns out they are really on the trail of a shapeshifter.

This is a pivotal point where eldest son Dean witnesses his father killing someone for the first time. Dean doesn't know that it's a shapeshifter and only sees his father killing Ichi when the demon killed the really Ichi back in the woods. It's a major event for John who did not want to resort to killing anything except the demon that killed his wife. For Dean, he sees his father in a dangerous way and tells Sammy that he's leaving hoping that if John realizes Sammy doesn't have an older brother to take care of him, he'll actually become a real father to him.

We're up to Issue #3 in the Supernatural: Origins series. I'm definitely enjoying it so far as would anyone who is a fan of the show or shows like Buffy and Angel. It's a great way to get your dose of other-worldly evilness.Since this comic series is a prequel to the show, it's all about John Winchester's history. From the time of Mary's death, John has wanted to find her killer. His first lead is to go after the hellhound who left evidence behind when killing Mary's best friend. The hellhound t...
