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. His name… John “The Hand” Smith. An outcast and an orphan, Smith’s massive right hand is nearly twice as large as his left, and he’s not afraid to use it. From two of New York’s favorite sons, actor/director Edward Burns (Saving Private Ryan, The Brothers McMullen) and comics’ legend Jimmy Palmiotti (Painkiller Jane, Monolith) comes a story filled with diamond-toothed gangsters, Chinese gangs, the flirtatious and sexy girlfriend of a mob boss, deadly double crosses and plenty of Tommy Guns. Collects issues #1-5.
