John Lord, Volume 1
Humanoids Inc, Mar 19, 2014 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 56 pages
An old-fashioned yet truly original noir tale set in 1920s New York where an unlikely pair of detectives pursue a mysterious killer. Freshly returned from WWI, ex-detective John Lord is convinced to reactivate a special investigative agency known as the UPIs to probe the grisly death of its founder. As John is joined by Clara, an opinionated psychology student, the duo is taken on a wild ride from the Big Apple to Louisiana's Bayou Country. A pulpy tale of crime, full of snappy dialogue, twists and turns, and the unraveling mysteries of the past.
