Welcome to NICE, home of assassins, bored hipsters, deranged detectives, and the electric glow of an LA smog sunset. The transport is a '69 GTO and the drinks are upright Manhattans, with a cherry. Blood and death are just part of a normal day, man.
Jose and Kevin are running errands for a massive crime organization in Los Angeles, and they're a little bit in over their heads, which is clear when they drive a masked man to his hit point and take off for drinks after only five minutes. Meanwhile, said masked man's attempt at a quick break in and snuff job has gone to hell because the target, Detective Hanin, is a slightly psychopathic, drug-addicted ball-buster who's set a trap. Much blood later, the masked man is a pulpy corpse, and Hanin has one more clue to unlocking the mystery of NICE.
Dagen Walker and Joseph Ettinger's debut comic book series is an irresistible mix of deadpan conversation, intrigue, and ultra-violence combined into a brand new genre: hipster noir.
