In this neo-noir fantasy, Nina Rodriguez is positive that a secret magic world ruled by ruthless cabals is hiding just beneath the veneer of Los Angeles. The problem: everyone thinks she's crazy.

WRITER: GERRY DUGGAN

ARTIST / COVER: JOHN MCCREA

Now he's back in the mask to save her, but no one -- not his wife, the mafia, or the cops -- is happy that he's out of retirement. From JOHN McCREA, the artist and co-creator of MYTHIC and Hitman, and GERRY DUGGAN, the writer of ANALOG and Deadpool, comes the action-comedy-drama tale of Martin Dobbs, a.k.a.
