Written by ANDERSEN GABRYCH - Art by BRAD RADER - Cover by LEE BERMEJO New from Vertigo Crime! Frank Grissel is a hard-knuckled private eye - and a deeply closeted homosexual - set in the very real world of 1953 San Francisco. Aided by his long-suffering secretary (and sometime live-in lover) Loretta, Grissel's search for a runaway girl winds up with his becoming a suspect in a string of gruesome murders. The case takes twists and turns through the Golden Gate's greasy underbelly: the beguiling arms of a Chinese shipping heiress (and smuggler); an unexpected reunion with the daughter he abandoned long ago; the loss of Loretta to the sadistic clutches of the high-powered "Colonel"; and finally to the horrifying, gender-bending truth.

While just a random pick-up at the library, I found this comic to be immensely enjoyable. Unfortunately, the description here spoils one of the plot twists, but even then, "Fogtown" is a great crime story that I'd recommend to anyone who loves the genre.
