An award-winning 1950s gangster thriller from the writer of The Death of Stalin! Red-hot revenge plays out over the hot rocks of the Texas desert... in a little town called Black Rock!

Tyler Cross lives his life on a knife edge, but never shows the slightest sign of losing his cool. Perhaps that's why he’s one of the best drug traffickers in the USA – perhaps it'll keep him alive in a town where everyone wants him dead!

Guns, drugs, and grit meet cutting dialogue and dramatic illustration for an unforgettable plunge into good old-fashioned noir!

Reviews

Tyler Cross is pure noir played out over the hot rocks of the 1950 Texas desert. A Fistful of Dollars meets Touch of Evil with more sex and violence – which is not a bad thing.

Comic Crusaders

Tyler Cross makes Richard Stark’s Parker look like My Little Pony, and writer Nury ups the ante on Quentin Tarantino, Ed McBain and Mickey Spillane. Fast and brutal, the comic reads like a breeze, with a filmic approach that fits the subject to a T.

Broken Frontier

Captivating in its darkness and intensity… alive with an energy I rarely see in comics. Every page is just jaw dropping. Overall an amazingly done piece of comic book fiction.
