Los Angeles is the birthplace of noir because the brighter the sunshine, the deeper the shadows and the more deadly the mischief that goes on in the dark.
Angeltown: The Nate Hollis Investigations is a HC from Moonstone reprinting the Vertigo mini series in glorious black and white -- the original critically praised sequential mystery featuring the cool, tough private eye's frenzied search in the shadows for a pro hoopster wanted for murder in "Baller."
Additionally, Gary Phillips (Operator 5), has penned two original illustrated prose short stories for this volume; "Hollywood Killer," wherein superhero pretenders prowling Hollywood Boulevard for tips are getting bumped off, and "King Cow," about cattle, lowriders and babes with nazi tattoos.
