5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 3 Jan 2003

First, a note to the parents and easily offended: This is NOT the book for you, or children younger than 17. It puts the ultra in ultraviolent, and has depictions of nudity and gross consumerism. Buy this for a relative at your own risk. And now,
You know, when a graphic novel merits a mention in an Andrew Vachss novel, it's quality. It is a very simple noirish tale, set in a an ugly future Amerika. Hopeless urban sprawl, violent crime, gun-toting citzenry. Everyone walks around tattooed with brand-names and eating irradiated cheeseburgers. Corporate masters set killer robots on their competitors, and get away with it. The stuff of crappy cyberpunk, in other words.
What elevates this, however, is the wonderful, fantastically intricate art. "Vibrates like liquid poetry", I believe the Vachss novel said.
And it's true. Everything, from the skin folds of the characters, to the grafitti on the wall in the far background, is fully realized in great detail. I could go on in this vein for a while, but why bother? Buy it. It's worth every penny.
