Duran Grey just wants to be left alone. Unfortunately, the killer robots chasing him through the Martian desert don’t seem to be listening. After escaping the robots by almost dying in a dust storm, Duran finds himself in Blue Skies, a depressing frontier town. The Ares Corporation hasn’t forgotten about him though, and they manage to track him down. Duran needs help from Blackstone Moss, the aging geologist, and Magenta, aka Gent, resistance fighter and owner of the local saloon, to defend the town from corporate attack dogs.
