Overview

Comic books are dying.

And so are the people who create them.

It’s 1951 and the comic book industry is undergoing a recession that’s sent half the writers and artists in New York to the streets in search of work. Among that number is writer Max Wiser, former pulp scribe and son of a legendary NYPD homicide cop on whose life Wiser based his bestselling pulp stories.

But when comics’ top writer dies in a suspicious drunken fall from a moving subway train, Max is plunged into a world of lies, conspiracy, and murder . . . and finds that there is often a fine line between reality and the pulp fiction he writes.

Especially after the dead man’s beautiful blonde mistress works her way into his life . . . and when the next victim turns up dead, Max Wiser learns that even in the often cliché-laden world of comic books, there’s really no such thing as “The Same Old Story.”
