Gr. 10-up. Greyshirt, the masked hero created by Veitch and Alan Moore for the anthology Tomorrow Stories, is back in six full-color episodes that focus less on the crime fighter than on crime-ridden Indigo City, the snakelike monster called the Lure, and the city's tough-guy criminals (and their buxom girlfriends), who strong-arm their way to success. The first issue introduces bad guys Frankie Lafayette and Johnny Apollo as boys who steal a gun and have a run-in with the Lure. They reappear later in other episodes--as adolescents, then as grown-ups trying to establish their criminal reputations and get by in a grim, violent world. Interspersed among the episodes are clever black-and-white (there's some purple lettering as well) mock-ups of a newspaper, Indigo City Sunset, complete with comics, editorials, headline stories, and gossip (the "Indigo Poop Scoop"). The artists even make fun of themselves along the way. Art styles differ markedly in a few episodes, but there's ample thread to connect the goings-on, in both the news articles and the episodes themselves. Skillful, silly, brazen, and sometimes violent stuff for older comics fans. Stephanie Zvirin
