A Killing in Comics 

A Killing in Comics (2007)
(The first book in the Jack and Maggie Starr series)
A novel by Max Allan Collins

A cutting-edge mystery novel that combines the illustrations of Batman artist Terry Beatty with a New York Times bestelling author.

Manhattan, 1948. America's most famous exstriptease artist, glamorous Maggie Starr, now runs her late husband's newspaper syndicate, distributing the Wonder Guy comic strip. Wonder Guy, soaring superhero, represents all that is good about postwar America. But when the cartoon character's publisher winds up dead, Maggie finds herself working with her stepson Jack Starr (also her V.P. and chief troubleshooter) to find a killer among cartoonists, wives, mistresses and minions of a different sort of "syndicate"-suspects with motives that are anything but superheroic.
