Back Cover Copy of The Kitchen:
In Hell’s Kitchen in the 1970s, married women have their place—and it isn’t out on the streets collecting loan shark payments for the Irish mob. But when their gangster husbands get sent up the river, prison widows Kath, Raven and Angie can’t see any other way to make a living—and, as it turns out, they’re pretty damned good at the job.
So good, in fact, that they start attracting attention from the big leagues. As the trio expands their operation and consolidates their grip on Manhattan’s west side, a sit-down with the mafia higher-ups is inevitable. If they play their cards right, the city could be their oyster—as long as all the bodies they’ve left in their wake stay buried.
Collecting the seven-issue VERTIGO miniseries by the acclaimed creative team of Ollie Masters, Ming Doyle and Jordie Bellaire, THE KITCHEN opens a cracked and sooty window onto a bygone era of New York City and the hardscrabble ambitions that fueled its rise.
