Item description for Smoke And Guns by Kirsten Baldock & Fabio Moon...
When Scarlett, an overly ambitious cigarette girl - quick to break the rules and even quicker to pull the trigger - starts selling cigarettes outside of her district, tensions rise and the seeds of an all-out cigarette girl gang war are sown. When you're out on the street in the middle of the night wearing your little French Maid outfit, with the short skirt and the off-the-shoulder top, Jack Daniels isn't just your friend, it's your coat. And the 9mm in your tray isn't just your protection - it's the compass that points you the way home.

Reviews - What do customers think about Smoke And Guns?
Quirky noir May 13, 2008
Think of all those Prohibition-era movies you ever saw, with rum-runners, turf wars, criminal empires, and the sweet and relatively innocent cigarette girls. Baldock turns the genre on its head. Here, alcohol takes a minor place and the shadow economy revolves around cigarettes - and the cigarette girls. They're the tough guys, they're in control. Except maybe Scarlett, who's totally out of control.
This B&W comic offers an exicting ride with a cross-town gun battle reminiscent of The Warriors. OK, the plot and characters aren't the most highly developed. Well, the lean, leggy babes are well developed, but that's not what I meant. You'll find plenty of excitement lightly seasoned with mild nudity. Sometimes I look for more in a comic, but this one's fun anyway.
Smokin' HOT! Oct 27, 2005
Taking a page from Frank Miller's SIN CITY, Kirsten Baldock perfectly captures the pulp-noir genre she was aiming for. Everything from the frame compositions to the hard-boiled dialogue, if you love to drink-in the world of dirty, gitty, hard-times, where your gun mostly does all the talking and the dames are an eye-full, then you'll love this book.
Yeah, smoking is bad for you, but damn, do you look cool doing it.
