The city of Arcadia has a cancer of crime, and X is the surgeon. He's turned his scalpel against a notoriously corrupt gang of narcotics officers known as the Dogs of War...but their manipulative leader, Lt. Setter, has a plan. He rounds up Arcadia's last remaining honest cops and tasks them with capturing "the X-Killer," knowing that X's honor code won't let him fight back lethally. Can X remove the tumor without killing the patient? Does Arcadia even have a soul to save? Duane Swierczynski (Bloodshot, Godzilla) and Eric Nguyen (Batwing) serve up a gritty, urban tale of vigilante action!
