Jim Bowie, one of a bunch of heroes that in 1836 held Fort Alamo facing the Mexican siege, is also known for his eponymous knife. The Bowie Knife, with its long and unmistakable blade, became a legendary weapon of the West; but Jims original knife is told to have been fashioned from a mysterious stone from space. A finding during an archeological excavation in the heart of Texas could shed a new light on the nature of this metal, and maybe lead to a far more dangerous revelation. Only Martin Mystère seems to be able to stop the dark forces that are trying everything to grasp the secret of the blade.
