GENRE: Thriller
LOGLINE: A down-on-his luck comic book creator and a fangirl with a talent for artistic mimicry come up with a scam to convince comics fandom that Jeff Krantz, an eccentric artist long thought to have disappeared, has returned to penciling.  But when the new Krantz-style artwork goes public, the two scammers are suddenly threatened by a mysterious figure – who fears his decades-old crime has been discovered.


When comic book artist Andy Brookhiser injures his drawing hand in a stupid accident, the wheels of his career start falling off. At first, his editor at Moonlight Comics offers him a writer’s job – but Andy can’t write, so instead, he becomes a “Roving Promotional Representative”, hyping Moonlight product at comic conventions or “cons”, in one city after another. At one such con, Andy encounters Indigo Dokes – a goth chick fangirl and wanna-be comic book artist. With dozens of rejections to her name, Indigo keeps getting told her style is too derivative. Of course, it is derivative – because she has the rare ability to mimic precisely, even forge, the drawing style of almost any artist. When an incident at another con gets Andy fired, the idea for a scam occurs to him. Thirty years ago, eccentric Silver Age comics artist Jeff Krantz vanished – seemingly into thin air. Approached by Andy to mimic Krantz’ art – and fake out fandom by creating the illusion of Jeff Krantz’ long-awaited return to penciling – Indigo accepts. But her “new” Krantz artwork – complete with subtly included “Easter eggs”, by means of which Krantz was known to conduct beefs and feuds with other comics artists – attracts the attention of a mysterious figure...who fears his decades-old murder of Krantz has been discovered. Now in order to survive – and keep drawing paychecks – Andy and Indigo must solve the mystery of Jeff Krantz’ murder and bring the killer to justice.
