Visionary designer and comics creator Dean Motter (Mister X, Elecropolis, Batman: Nine Lives) returns with the purest expression to date of his patented retro futurism! Terminal City is a place where transistor-tube robots rub elbows with old-time gangsters, where bright, shiny technologies cast deep noir shadows. The city has been in decline since a group of celebrated adventurers - Kid Gloves, the boxer; Monty Vickers, the explorer; Eno Orez, the Man of 1,000 Faces, and Cosmo Quinn, the human fly - were each disgraced or disappeared into obscurity. Now a series of strange mysteries involving an unopenable briefcase, a missing link in evolution, a daring lady in red, and an obscene skywriter brings the four men together once again, some on the side of the law, some involved in shady business, with explosive results!
