Supernatural: Rising Son #1 is the first edition of the second title released by DC's WildStorm in the Supernatural universe. The edition was released in April 23, 2008.


Dean and Sam Winchester were raised as Hunters by their widowed father, seeking vengeance on the supernatural elements that took their mother from them. But the road to vengeance is a dark one, and is it a place where children can have any semblance of a life?

Picking up several years after Supernatural: Origins, the boys are now old enough to join John on his cross-country 'hunting trips.' Amid the carnage and violence, John's seeking something specific: any information on why his wife was murdered. But is he prepared for the answers that'll he find? And is he willing to sacrifice his 11-year-old son Dean to this hard, lonely life by giving him his first 'hunt'?



John encounters The Beast of Bray Road.

In Delavan, Wisconsin, John Winchester is on the hunt for the supernatural. He discovers the legendary Beast of Bray Road and finishes it off with a rifle shot to the head. Though he is victorious, he does sustain minor injuries. The conflict makes him late for his job and his employer can no longer tolerate John's tardiness. He fires him and tells him to get his life together.

Some time later, he learns that his late wife's cousin Eddie Thompson disappeared while driving some merchandise from Elgin to Albuquerque, New Mexico. John packs up his boys and heads out onto the road investigating this newest mystery. He finally tracks Eddie down but notices that the man is acting extremely strange. Eddie secretly arranges a meeting with John at the Nightengale Tavern. When they finally get a chance to speak with one another, Eddie persists in acting elusive. He does however, warn John that he has experienced inexplicable things in recent weeks. Eddie's wife Nadine enters the bar to retrieve him. Eddie reluctantly returns home with his wife.

Soon after, John discovers that all of the female employers and patrons of the tavern are actually Succubi - demonic entities who seduce men in order to feed on their souls. The demons recognize John and surround him. They try to conquer his spirit by assuming the visage of his dead wife Mary. John grabs a decorative samurai sword from the wall and kills them all. He then races back to Eddie's house, but he is too late. Nadine (also a Succubus) has already finished him off. John and Nadine fight and the demon reveals that her brood has plans for the Winchester family. John fires a shot into her neck, killing her.

Later, a mysterious woman enters the Nightengale Tavern and surveys the scene. She finds one of the Succubi, barely alive and asks her about the location of Sam Winchester.
