While Rob Williams was working on Star Wars Tales he contacted Davis with a view to working on a strip at some point. Davis had mentioned that he liked the Cursed Earth mega-epic. The offer came in to work on the Out Law strip, set in the Cursed Earth at about the same time he was finishing the final issue of B.P.R.D.: King of Fear and managed to bring Dave Stewart, his B.P.R.D. colourist, with him. Davis had a few challenges adapting to the British size and shape of comic page.
