NOTE:  Not to be confused with Tom Cain’s Sam Carver series (The Accident Man with upcoming movie IIRC)
 
Description
Accident Man is a character from the defunct monthly UK comic Toxic! written by the comic writer Pat Mills in the early 1990s. Toxic! Was similar to the long-running UK comic 2000 AD.
 
The story centered around the life of Mike Fallon, a high-class hitman. Fallon was known for making his murders look like accidents, often going to extravagant lengths to do so. Fallon is also noted for his love of high living and glamorous girlfriends. Mike Fallon's, "I don't give a damn" attitude to his hits was changed the day his ex wife(a would-be Greenpeace activist) was murdered. Fallon then went on a murderous rampage to find out who paid the contract on his girlfriend and who actually made the hit.
 
Three Accident Man story series ran in Toxic!, between 6 and 8 issues each and the first two were reprinted.
 
"Accident Man" (with Martin Emond, in Toxic! #1-6, 1991, reprinted in Apocalypse Presents  #3 "Accident Man", 1991). This is posted below.
 
"The Death Touch" (with Duke Mighten, in Toxic! #10-16, 1991, Apocalypse Presents #5 "Accident Man Book Two The Death Touch", 1991) – posted here placeholder
 
"The Messiah Sting" (with John Erusmus, in Toxic! #17-24, 1991) – unscanned AFAIK
 
There was also a three-issue mini series published by Dark Horse comics in 1993 (aka “Sex and Death”), drawn by Duke Mighten this time in black and white.  – posted here placeholder
 
 
Props to Broomhandle Mauser for the scan.
 
Enjoy!
