The gripping tale of Eliot Ness’ chase of America’s first serial killer: the mysterious torso killer! This 1999 Eisner Award-winner for Comic Book Excellence is completely reformatted in this newest edition to the Jinxworld library!
Cleveland. 1935. Eliot Ness, fresh from his legendary Chicago triumph over Al Capone and associates, set his sights on Cleveland. He went on a crusade that matched, and sometimes even surpassed, his past accomplishments. But dismembered body parts started washing up in a concentrated area of Lake Erie Sound. Headless torsos that left no clues to their identity or reason for death. Elliot Ness and his colorful gang of The Unknowns chased this killer through the underbelly of Cleveland for years. As far as the public was concerned, he was never captured. But what really happened is even more shocking.
