How do you hurt the toughest guy in the world?

Maurice "Motor City Mo" Goldman has hit rock bottom. 

His glory days of being a top boxing prospect are behind him, now you'll most likely find him alone in his apartment throwing back whisky by the gallon or down at his favorite strip club, Clooney's.

On occasion he earns money as an enforcer for Don Dozier (of Dollar Don's Discount Autowash--you've seen the commercials); breakin legs, crackin skulls, general intimidation, you know. But Mo can't take it anymore--his apartment, his choices, his life, any of it--he wants out. 

Only problem is, he can't die. 

And trust me, he's trying...

"Open the pages of Motor City Mo and expect to say, 'Wow!' For an indie title, this book really pulls out the stops in terms of quality and professionalism, and not for the first time, an indie book has put some of the mainstream publishers' titles to shame. "

“A gripping read that perfectly captures the metro Detroit area accompanied with characters that are flawed but you still care about.”


"...part 1 of Motor City Mo is an intriguing introduction to the brutal world of Maurice Goldman, just as his life is about to become even more difficult. It’s a well put together comic which hits all the marks with regards [to] script, art and production."

Meet some of the ne'er do wells that populate the universe of Motor City Mo...



Mo Goldman is tough; he's always been tough.

And not just because he has a superhuman regenerative ability, either.

Dora's life is in shambles when she crosses paths with Mo.  Not QUITE as bad as his--but pretty close.


Rizzo and Mo have been at this a long time. He's not stupid--Rizzo knows when a fight breaks out, you want Motor City Mo around.

...maybe not stupid, but he's a giant asshole.
