The Marvel Universe - shot in noir!
Hard-boiled, hard-drinking private eye Jim Logan is the best there is at what he does. And when Mariko Yashida saunters into his office, he knows she's trouble when he sees it. It's the case of Logan's career - if he survives.
Meanwhile, discredited quack Charles Xavier rots in jail. He used to train desperate teens into canny grifters, but now one of his 'X-Men,' Jean Grey, is dead - and corrupt police chief Eric Magnus is closing in on the rest.
Then: Logan, Cyclops and the avenging Angel find the Gem of Cyttorak in the stinking jungles of Madripoor - but all it's done is put a target on their backs. And what kind of monster is Nightcrawler?
