Crime and the City Solution 

St. Louis' reputation as a bastion of violent crime is hotly debated by the municipal government and embraced with a perverse pride by the citizens. It's this pride that's celebrated in Shots in the Dark, the new independent comic-book anthology published by Ink and Drink Comics. Containing more than a dozen tales of crime and violence ranging from the eating of stale cookies while on the job in a grocery store bakery to a drug-fueled cannibal rampage through the Delmar Loop, Shots in the Dark showcases the writing and illustrating prowess of twenty hometowners; it's also an entertaining peek into the underbelly — both real and imagined — of America's on-again, off-again "most dangerous city." The official release party for Shots in the Dark takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. this evening at Star Clipper (6392 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-725-9110 or inkanddrinkcomics.com). Admission is free, and Shots in the Dark costs $11.99.
