Marty Crow

Created by Robert Lopresti

According to his cop buddy Sergeant Stanislaw, MARTY CROW is "the fourth best private eye" in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Marty, however, he thinks maybe he's third best, since one of his rivals went back to parking cars for a living.

Poor Marty. Part of what keeps Marty from the top of the pile is the little problem he has with gambling. Worse, he doesn't think he HAS a problem.
