—Review by Michael V., circa 1996 - from the back cover of the Father's Day trade paperback
is a comic book by Jason Pearson and indie publisher 12 Gauge Comics
. It's set in Twenty Minutes into the Future
Georgia, in the city of Terminus. Mack "Clownface" Delgado and Iran "Pops" Sekula are Body Baggers - government-sanctioned "bounty officials" who capture or more often kill individuals with bounties on their heads. The bounties can apparently be posted by the government or by other citizens.

and Body Bags: 3 The Hard Way
. Unusually for such a short-running series, a set of Clownface and Panda action figures have also been produced.
