One of the most persistent mysteries surrounding the murder of JFK was the question: Was there a second shooter? This fictional crime drama imagines one possibility in the tale of Conrad “Connie” Bremen. An ex-con who just wants to get on with life, Connie has caught the attention of several high-powered people, in the Mob, the CIA, and the FBI. They all have plans for Connie, whether he likes it or not.
The series was first released in 1991 and collected in a graphic novel in 1993. The graphic novel was reprinted in 2002.
The reprint is well timed, the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act mandates that all JFK assassination records must be fully declassified by October 26,2017 by The National Archives and Records Administration, so there will be renewed interest in the source material.
