New York City: It's the roaring 20s and America's great metropolis has become the nexus of high society culture, cutting edge industry and the most shocking crime wave in our country's history. Known for its treacherous underworld, there's a new power waking up the city that never sleeps. His name... John "The Hand" Smith.
An outcast and an orphan, Smith's massive right hand is nearly twice as large as his left, and when push comes to shove, you'd pity anyone that's gets in his way.
From two of New York's favorite sons, actor/director Edward Burns (The Brothers McMullen, Saving Private Ryan) and comics' superstar Jimmy Palmiotti (Painkiller Jane, Monolith), comes a story filled with diamond-tooth gangsters, Chinese gangs, the flirtatious and sexy girlfriend of a mob boss, deadly double crosses and plenty of tommy guns.
