About The Book

Smoketown is a blue-collar crime noir graphic novel set in the steel mill community of Smoketown, Pennsylvania. Written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, illustrated by Scott Van Domelen and Dustin Mollick, published by Scout Comics.

An American soldier struggling with PTSD and hallucinations tries to fit back into his old life. An abused wife frantically struggles to hide her abuser’s body before morning. The son of a blue collar crime boss sees something he’s not meant to see, and finds his true calling. An aging police officer at the end of a disappointing career finally gets his chance to make a difference, but finds himself in the middle of something much bigger than he expected. 


Each resident of the steel mill town nicknamed “Smoketown” has been trapped there in their own way, and each has their own story to tell. But as their lives intersect in unexpected ways, they each get dragged into the violent, criminal side of their seemingly quiet town, each forced to make impossible, sometimes violent decisions to protect those they love.
