Turf is a five-issue comic book limited series, written by Jonathan Ross,[1] illustrated by Tommy Lee Edwards[2] and published by Image Comics.[3]

Publication history[edit]

The story was originally published by Image Comics and then serialised in CLiNT, before being collected.

Plot summary[edit]

The narrative is set in 1920s Prohibition-era New York and features period typical gangsters alongside vampires and aliens. Ross himself, describes the comic as:

An intelligent popcorn movie. lots of action, lots of setting, lots of cool ideas, but with an emotional heart to it.[4]

Reception[edit]

The first 20,000 copies of issue 1 sold out on pre-orders alone. In interview, Ross has said that he intends the mini-series to run for five issues, eventually being released in a hardback collection and potentially a film adaptation, to be made by Matthew Vaughn.[1]

Collected editions[edit]

The series was collected into a single volume:
