What do you get when you blend Isaac Asimov and Humphrey Bogart?
A pretty good comic book.
Ferro City, the brainchild of Toronto writer/artist Jason Armstrong, successfully fuses the crime noir of the best Bogart flicks with the edgy future view of Asimov.
There’s hard drinking, guns blazing and robots aplenty in this creative and clever story about gumshoe Cyrus Smithe.
Smithe is facing a murder rap after his partner is found dead. But as he works to piece together the mystery of who really committed the crime and where the sought-after Medusa Key is, he quickly finds he’s not the only one looking and the other parties aren’t playing by the rules.
This is a solid new series that warrants further investigation.
