A powerhouse team of Hollywood and comic book veterans (along with special guest artists) presents a fast, funny, 100% cool new series for readers of all stripes. On the mean streets of Los Angeles, an alcoholic hit man and a desperate starlet dodge Russian mobsters, Italian gangsters, ninjas, hippies and the L.A.P.D. in a scheme to steal millions from a psychotic action movie hero. Featuring art by VIKTOR KALVACHEV (PHERONE, DMZ, The Incredibles), NATHAN FOX (Invincible Iron Man, Pigeons From Hell), TOBY CYPRESS (Batman/Nightwing), ROBERT VALLEY (Gorillaz, Tron), and written by Emmy Award winning screenwriter ANDREW OSBORNE.


It all begins with a dame. Fallen starlet RACHEL MADDOX storms into the office of low-rent private eye ROY DEVINE, JUNIOR, who quickly brings us up to speed on her case: Rachel is married to D-List action star BRUCE MADDOX...who’s laundering money for Russian crime czar VADIM RAZOV...who just did an arms deal with L.A. mob boss DON LUCIANO...who’s the target of an L.A.P.D. investigation by Roy’s supercop father, BIG ROY... and sexy Rachel’s got a few secrets of her own!
