A Little Bit "Last Action Hero" and Pinch of "Happy" and Cook For Six Years 

Former Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief, Jim Shooter, founder of Valiant Comics, Defiant Comics and Broadway Comics, will make his Image Comics debut with an ongoing series called Slow City Blues. The book was created by Samuel Haine, who started working on the book six years ago. He worked in a restaurant in order to raise money to pay someone to draw some sample pages for the concept. From there he met veteran comic book inker, John Livesay, who will be the series editor and inker for the comic. Livesay brought in Shawn Moll to draw the book, JD Smith to color the book and Thomas Mauer to letter the series. Livesay inked Jim Shooter's most recent Legion of Super-Heroes run for DC and so he introduced Shooter with Haine which led to Shooter becoming the series story editor. The comic will tell the story of detective John Loris, who is trapped inside his own imagination after the accidental shooting of a little girl while in the line of duty. Loris tried to take his own life but ended up stuck in the imaginary world of Slow City. Loris will work there as a cop in a world in which everyone knows he is the creator of this world. He will be teamed up with a six foot six, wisecracking skunk and the two will have to stop a gang war before Slow City is destroyed. Shooter took the job with the plan of applying his vast knowledge to keep Haine on track and because he liked what story the series was going to tell.
