The Sundown Boys is a webcomic set in a dystopian future where everything has succumbed to the richest and most dangerous criminal organizations. They make the rules and the world is a very dark place. Robert, Leon, and Geoffrey Heron work as soldiers and assassins for the De Saule Organization. Their younger brother Timothy, too young to fight and less skilled than his seemingly superhuman brothers, stays home. Their futures seem bleak. But everything changes after a chance encounter with a girl from Leonís past. Suddenly, the brothers find themselves swept up in a major conspiracy which will reveal not only a startling secret about the brothersí abilities, but also long-kept secrets from within the De Saule Organization itself.
