After serving his time, super-villain Steeljack finds himself back on the streets. But for a man who has learned to live and thrive in a world behind bars, freedom can be the greatest prison. Intent to make good with his second chance, Steeljack is unsuccessful finding work until he takes on a dangerous job investigating the murder of several super-villains in his neighborhood. But as he solves the mystery, Steeljack soon finds that he may be the latest victim on the list of deceased criminals. Featuring a painted cover and sketchbook by Alex Ross and an introduction by Frank Miller.

Back Blurb

Murder in a Bad Neighborhood...

It's Only Kiefer Square...

a run-down eyesore of tenements and lost hopes, the home of pretty criminals, down-and-outers, hired muscle and worse. And nobody cares - not the copes, not the city, and certainly not the super - heroes that soar above Astro City, making the world safe for everyone else.

So when someone starts killing the small-time super-villains of Kiefer Square, it falls to one man to do something about it. Steeljack, a.k.a. the Steel-Jacketed Man. Just out of prison, he wants nothing more than a straight job, a place to sleep and three square meals a day.

He's not smart. He's not brave. And he doesn't want the job. But he has something the people of Kiefer Square desperately need.

He's hard to kill.

He'll have to be.
