The search for missing photojournalist Savannah Loy leads private detective Ira Avery outside of San Hannibal to the exclusive and tightly guarded Stockbridge Club. But even if Avery can uncover its secrets, there’s no guarantee he’ll live long enough to tell them.
Written and drawn by Dan Schkade with colors and letters by Jesse Snavlin, San Hannibal is a retro-futuristic, hard-boiled crime graphic novel told in five parts. Featuring a look and feel unlike anything else on the market — call it “neon noir” — San Hannibal is as visually daring as it is entirely engrossing. It follows Avery through his dealings with thugs, a makeshift rock star and pagan ritualists as he uncovers a conspiracy that reaches all the way up to San Hannibal’s political elite.
