Too many questions and not enough answers. That’s the situation Violet Sparks finds herself in.

A return to Bill Willingham’s fantastical steampunk world of LEGENDERRY!

David F. Walker (w) Bilquis Evely (a) Denys Cowan w/ Bill Sienkiewicz and Ivan Nunes, Francesco Francavilla, Sanford Greene (c)
John Shaft didn’t go looking for trouble; it came looking for him, and in the process, a lot of people died. Devastated by the murder of a friend, Shaft wants answers and revenge—though not necessarily in that order. With vengeance on his mind and cold steel in his hand, Shaft finds himself caught up in a brewing gang war that threatens to consume the city. Everyone from the Mafia to the police wants Shaft to do their dirty work, but no one realizes that’s all part of his plan.
