In the aftermath of World War I, the bohemian art scene explodes onto Paris - much to the chagrin of the rich and powerful Arbogast family. Surrealist painter Judith Benoir wants desperately to make a splash - even if it means ignoring the warnings of others. And as The Creeper, she escalates simple cat burglaries into spectacular art crimes, establishing her as a cultural icon. But what are the true motivations behind The Creeper's actions? And how long before her antics spiral out of control and the law closes in?
Jason Hall co-created the critically-acclaimed PISTOLWHIP series of books published by Top Shelf. This includes writing Mephisto and the Empty Box and Pistolwhip: The Yellow Menace. (Back in his more reckless college years, he also wrote/directed a short movie where he played "Jack Peril" - the character's first appearance - and actually rode on top of and was hit by a speeding car!)
