Dock Walloper (2007) comic books 2007
by Burns, Palmiotti & Thomas New York City: It's the roaring 20s and America's great metropolis has become the nexus of high society culture, cutting edge industry and perhaps the most shocking crime wave in our country's history. Known for its sinister and treacherous underworld, there's a new power waking up the city that never sleeps. Its name... John 'The Hand' Smith. The Nickname is a given. An outcast and an orphan, Smith's massive right hand is nearly twice as large as his left, and when push comes to shove, you'd pity anyone that's gets in his way. Smith's only friends in the world are a fellow orphan and low-rent black gangster nicknamed Bootsy, and a Asian femme fatale known as Ring-a-Ling. In a world of crime, passion, and a touch of the fantastic, they will attempt to change organized crime... or die trying. From two of New York's favorite sons, independent director Edward Burns (Brothers McMullen, Saving Private Ryan) and comics' legend Jimmy Palmiotti (Painkiller Jane, Monolith). Cover price $2.99.
by Jimmy Palmiotti & Siju Thomas New York City becomes a blood-drenched battleground as each player forcibly takes what they think is theirs. As John 'The Hand' Smith and Bootsy move up in the crime-world, having earned the favor of Irish mob boss Mad-Dog Madden, there are still threats that loom among rival mob organizations... and within Madden's own. Gentleman Jim's openly racist disfavor of Bootsy is causing strife among Madden's people, but the real peril comes from Diamond Jack-the gangster with the diamond-studded teeth-who seems to have an unquenchable taste for Smith's blood. They don't call this the roaring 20's for nothing! Cover price $2.99.
