This strange, but colorful, neo-noir adventure is reminiscent of L.A. Confidential. A columnist for a local gossip rag acts as our guide through a sordid and unfamiliar world, reporting on all the gory details of who’s getting arrested and who’s getting killed by whom—and how. Our story’s beginning even has the same catalyst as L.A. Confidential: the sudden arrest of the city’s major crime boss and the subsequent power vacuum it leaves in the criminal underworld.

This is the basis for Marvel Action Classics #4.
