Introducing Angel City, a hard-boiled 1930s noir starring Dolores Dare, previous Hollywood hopeful and current enforcer for the Volante mob. When her best friend turns up dead in a dumpster behind the Chinese Theater, Dolores starts her own investigation of the “April Fool’s Killer.” As she gets closer to the truth, the studios, the corrupt homicide division, and even her own gangland contacts work to cover up the scandal. Has she bitten off more than she can chew?

Praise for ANGEL CITY:

“Angel City is absolutely everything I love about comics—a new angle on a traditional noir, energetic, gorgeous, and inspired! Hard-boiled wit and delightful execution! I want more of all of it—Harvey’s writing and Levens’ art and Filardi’s colors and right down to Crank!’s evocative lettering! Gimme one NOW!” Greg Rucka (Wonder Woman, Queen & Country)

“Angel City flips the script on the classic detective story, centering around a heroine fed up with the way Hollywood treats everyone but the men in charge. I love actress-turned-muscle Dolores Dare, and I bet you will, too.” Kate Leth (Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat, Vampirella)

“Confident and atmospheric, Angel City’s sunlight-set noir makes it easy to lose yourself among the lost souls.” Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars: Darth Vader)

“A golden-age noir with knuckles of brass—Angel City is a gorgeous place to visit.” Sam Humphries (Our Love is Real, Jonesy)

“Great noir set-up! Looking forward to more!” Kelly Sue DeConnick (Bitch Planet, Pretty Deadly)

“Evokes the setting and style of Old Hollywood pulp mythology, without hiding the shadier parts behind knock-off Dior and soft focus. Dolores Dare is my kind of anti-heroine; smart, broken, and deadly.”
Antony Johnston (Wasteland, The Fuse)

“Classic noir in the D.O.A. and Detour tradition, with the most compelling lead I’ve seen in a long time.” Joshua Hale Fialkov (Tumor, The Bunker)
