on 5 September 2011
Set in the early twentieth century, Luke "Power Man" Cage is released from prison to find out his girlfriend is in trouble and numerous enemies are out to get him. The story follows Cage as he reacquaints himself with the criminal underworld and fights his way to freedom.

Continuing their pulpy/noir series, transplanting popular characters to the Chandler-esque world of crime and vice, Marvel chose one too many characters for this series I think. Luke Cage is an alright character but isn't as interesting as Wolverine or the Punisher. His background and set of characters isn't as well known either. Maybe this is cynical but maybe he was chosen because he's a black character and Marvel don't have many of these? Also, it's easy to riff on the "blacks as second class citizens" theme seeing as this is the 20s/30s era.

Anyway, it's an ok book with a nicely written ending but there are other books in this series that are more fun to read like Deadpool or the Punisher. "Luke Cage Noir" is missable and just for the fans.
