    Cover by Matt Baker and Ray Osrin. Story by Arnold Drake and Leslie Waller. Art by Matt Baker and Ray Osrin. Packaged like a paperback rather than a comic book, this digest-sized drama is considered one of the first examples of what is now called the graphic novel. Journalist Hal is conflicted when old flame Rust comes back into his life with a political agenda. Drawn to Rust's stepdaughter Audrey, Hal faces moral choices that could determine the future of Copper City. The noirish tale features art by celebrated comics artist Matt Baker, best known for his "good girl" art. 6-in. x 8-in., 128 pages, B&W. Cover price $0.25.
