Needing no introduction, Jonathan Ross is not only a national celebrity but a lifelong comics fan - now making his writing debut with Image Comics and this fantastic five-issue mini-series! Tommy Lee Edwards is a top-drawer illustrator famous for his versatility. His clients have included just about every major film company, and his comics work includes 'Hellboy', 'Batman' and 'Marvel 1985'.
TURF is a hard-boiled noir crime thriller bristling with girls, guns, fangs and aliens. It’s New York, 1929, the height of prohibition. The cops turn a blind eye while the mobs run the city - but the arrival of the Eastern European Dragonmir Family coincides with a series of brutal attacks on the gangsters themselves. As the gangs fall before fangs, an unlikely alliance forms between tough guy Eddie Falco and a character from a LONG way from New York City - a long way from Earth in fact – and offers the humans a glimmer of hope.
