A noir/sci-fi comic (which I didn’t realize was already a genre when I began, but go figure!) about a subversive alien invasion in Saint Louis, Missouri in the 1920s. The main character, a private eye named Lundy Lundqvist, initially fights back against the aliens to solve a murder, but discovers the invasion has something to do with his past. It’s got all the usual tropes – bootleggers, crooked politicians, car chases, as well as a not-too-thinly veiled comment about the road to fascism.
