The Grackle

 GRA5   (Acclaim, 1997)

™ and ©1997 Acclaim Comics, Inc.

Cross is an ex-cop, working security for an illegal gambling casino run by a Chinese drug lord. When the mayor’s chief aide, Ryan Rozum, self-combusts due to a new designer drug during a rival gang’s invasion, Cross finds himself hip deep in city politics and intrigue. The death of his assistant in an illegal gambling den is an embarrassment for the mayor but a boon to his opponent, Derek Mancini, whose daughter Cross just happens to be dating.

Fans of hardboiled crime stories will appreciate this title from prolific writer, Mike Baron (Batman, Punisher, Nexus) and veteran artist, Paul Gulacy (Master of Kung Fu). Gulacy’s distinctive figures and expressive faces convey a sense of hard-edged realism that complements Baron’s down-to earth script.
