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.||”|
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.
The series was collected into a single volume:
- Turf (180 pages, hardcover, Images Comics, August 2011, ISBN 1-60706-400-6, Titan Books, September 2011, ISBN 1-84856-895-9)
