Jonny Double

 JONN   (Vertigo, 1998, 2002)

™ and ©1998 DC Comics, Inc.

Writer Brian Azzarello picked one of the more obscure DC characters to remake for this 1998 Vertigo series. Jonny Double was a former policeman turned counterculture private detective, who made his last prominent appearance in Showcase #78. This 1998 series finds him a down-and-out detective, taking on bums as clients and hoping to stick it to callous insurance companies. Just lately, it seems, somebody’s been sticking it to his clients first.

Having extended his bar tab as far as it will go, Double was glad to be hired by a powerful (and somewhat overprotective) man to keep watch over his wayward daughter. Lately, the daughter had been feeling rebellious, and was willing to do just about anything to irritate her father. As it turns out, this included hatching a plot with some friends to latch on to a dormant savings account that once belonged to one Al Capone. What’s more, they want Dollar’s help in pulling off the theft!
