The latest noir to come out of Titan Comics’ Hard Case Crime imprint is The Big Hoax, a steamy and sultry gangster-era saga, set in the fictional banana republic of La Colonia.
The story revolves around Miranda Centurion, a young woman whose untouched sexual purity becomes a local myth when rumours start spreading of her ability to heal the sick. However, this life of purity is a complete fiction and something she’s looking to escape from. She enlists the help of an ex-cop but is hunted by an evil hitman called The Iguana, leaving a trail of violence, sex and murder in her wake.
Written by Argentinian writer Carlos Trillo and illustrated by Roberto Madrafina, The Big Hoax is out now.
