Super hero police officer X-Ray - part of the elite squad of genetically-enhanced “Alpha Cops” - watches over the crime-infested streets of a near-future Chicago. The mohawked, spike studded, drug-pushing crime syndicate The Skull Gang is just one of the many vermin in X-Ray’s crosshairs. Between the familiar vigilante-with-a-troubled-past storyline, this one-shot issue inserts unresolved vignettes of high emotional seriousness: a consistently beaten child who loathes himself and a former human rights activist whose hand is biten off by his own pirana. X-Ray zeros in on the Skull Gang but our story halts as he is trapped within a forcefield battling a demonic creature with a knife tail. -EH
