Synopsis

Destination: Homicide! by Alan Nolan

In 1970s New York, Ricky Nixon and Eddie Ribbs are two loose cannon homicide detectives who are assigned the cases no-one else will touch. While investigating the murder of chicken-suited fast-food restaurant magnate Solomon Waddle, they uncover a devious plan by a mysterious Voodoo cult to take over organized crime in the Big Apple, by turning the mafia bosses into brainless undead zombies. Nixon and Ribbs, with the help of their hepcat snitch Snugg Fitt, must follow the clues over to the wrong side of the tracks, facing down voodoo high priests, squads of zombie cheerleaders and giant albino subway alligators until they unmask the mysterious Voodoo Chief, known only as Mister Fogg. An hilarious, action-packed, gag-filled graphic novel for young readers.
