Writer and Artist: Mike Vosburg
The environment is faux Depression era Hollywood, complete with snarling gangsters in snappy suits, the untouchable wealthy, corruptible starlets in sleek revealing gowns, and elegant automobiles set against the poverty and despair of the average Joe. Private detective J. Parker Wrighte is on an upwardly mobile career path from his lowly dust bowl beginnings, but finding that every advancement comes with a cost and a compromise. He is investigating a case for Louis Orwell, one of the most powerful men in Retrowood, but at every turn he is continually dragged back into contact with his past, beginning with the murder of his best friend from childhood, Henry Irving. The story features drunken priests, sadistic nuns, nymphomaniacal wives, with basketball and gambling thrown in... How can you go wrong with that?
