Torso



The true story of the hunt for America's first serial killer!

Brian Michael Bendis, the New York Times bestselling co-creator of Miles Morales, Naomi, Jessica Jones, and POWERS teams up with Manhunter writer Marc Andreyko for this gripping true tale of Eliot Ness’ hunt for America's first serial killer: Cleveland's torso killer!

Cleveland. 1935. Eliot Ness, fresh from his legendary Chicago triumph over Al Capone and associates, set his sights on Cleveland. He went on a crusade that matched, and sometimes even surpassed, his past accomplishments. But dismembered body parts started washing up in a concentrated area of Lake Erie Sound. Headless torsos that left no clues to their identity or reason for death. Eliot Ness and his colorful gang of The Unknowns chased this killer through the underbelly of Cleveland for years. As far as the public was concerned, he was never captured. But what really happened is even more shocking.

This 1999 Eisner Award-winner for Comic Book Excellence is re-designed in this latest edition to the Dark Horse/Jinxworld library!
