If you like Hellblazer & The Crow you will love Ten Grand, it may not be the freshest story but proves that an old idea can be enjoyable if written well and that is the case with Ten Grand. Also the art work is 10 out of 10 and adds to the story you will be hooked pretty quick.

I blistered through this. This was a great read. My only disappointment was that the second volume isn't out yet! Preorder on the next volume.

I've never read Constantine, it's on my to read list, but I have seen the film and I can see why someone would say it's similar as it is very similar but I think it's a lot better. It's very dark and the artwork suits the mood. It's got a great main character but it's the little things that please and the story that keeps you reading. I can't wait for volume 2!

Great Read! 23 April 2014
By D. H. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fantastic: this is the best Straczynski I have read! The art is a perfect accompaniment for the macabre and existential ride that is our protagonist's--Joe Fitzgerald--afterlife.
To be honest, I picked this book up on a tip from some of the boys over at Reddit; rarely have they steered me wrong, and they were spot on here.
Collects issues #1-6, respective covers, and some storyboard extras are included in the back. Personally, I hope there are many more issues to come.
I've never been a big fan of angels versus demons literature, most of the fiction available is derivative and poorly written in my experience. That being said, I've always enjoyed DC's Constantine; unfortunately, Constantine is often watered down for general audiences. This is mature, it is dark, and yet it also has a dreamlike quality--conjured by the art, that allows the reader to enjoy the extrasensory aspect to the story as well. My recommendation: check out the synopsis and if you think there's a chance you might enjoy it, take the chance. I'm glad I did.

I know. I had you at JMS. 19 Dec. 2014
By Esther Schindler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like many people, I've loved J. Michael Straczynski's work since the days of Babylon 5 -- and I have admired the man since he wrote a CompuServe post explaining how he saved a drowning kitten (yeah really).

While B5 is long gone, JMS certainly has never stopped creating stories that drag me in. Sometimes he does so in other's universes, but in this graphic novel he builds one from scratch again, and it's darkly compelling.

Joe Fitzgerald is a hit man who was going to do "one last job" before quitting the business at his beloved wife Laura's insistence. But on that last job he gets pulled into a dark-versus-light world of spirits and demons, for which the price is his life and Laura's -- unless he is willing to cut a deal. He has to do his best to save others, and be willing to die for it every time; the reward is a few minutes with his wife in a kind of purgatory. It's not exactly the most uplifting of stories, but JMS is a smartass and so are his characters.

The artwork is awesome. I'm not a serious graphic-novel fan, but the illustrations here really add to the story.

It's a quick read, but an intense one -- and definitely the beginning of a series. I'm ordering the next book for sure, and I bet you will as well.
Pull the ladies out of the refrigerator 18 Mar. 2015
By Crystal Starr Light - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Joseph Fitzgerald is a "button man" - he "buttons up" problems for his big boss. But his last job lead to his and his wife's death - he was given the chance to come back and given 5 minutes with Laura. Now, his goal is to get back to her, taking jobs from people, such as Debbie, searching for her sister in a cult, the Divine Will.

I've only ever really read a couple of other things from Straczynski - Wonder Woman Odyssey and Superman: Earth One - which were decent. So when my coworker gave me this, I figured it would be pretty intricate and at least decent. And that's about what I found to be true. It's a decent story, with a pretty stock male (of course) protagonist moving between heaven and hell.

Joe is a pretty bland, rather chatty guy. The book is LOADED with him talking and narrating and thinking and thinking and chatting about everything. It got a bit old after awhile to be honest. The art is pretty good - you don't HAVE to talk about everything on your mind. Beyond that, he's just kinda boring, your standard "bad guy turned good because of a woman". And yes, he's that guy that always has to save the girl.

Honestly, that's the most aggravating part of this comic - ALL the women are completely incapable of defending themselves or avoid being killed and used by the supernatural. It's so predominant, that I couldn't look past it and get absorbed by the twists and turns of the story, the revelations of this supernatural world. Laura, Debbie, Debbie's sister, even Joe's mom - all are women being used and disposed of, at the mercy of angels and demons, begging for Joe to save them, and it's irritating. Can't we ever create women who don't need a man to save them at every turn?

The story gets a bit convoluted. The initial plot is abandoned when Laura is threatened, because, as we know, women are incapable of saving themselves and must be saved by the hero. I have no clue what the resolution was with James, the Divine Will, and Debbie and her sister. Though I will say that Joe walking through Purgatory is interesting - the best part is when he crosses the river Styx,

The art was interesting - really gritty and abstract, particularly the shift from the living to the world between heaven and hell. Interesting concept - though some of the art gets weird at the end (almost CGI?).

This wasn't a bad comic, to be sure, but really, the fact that none of the women were characters, they were all foils and plot devices to be used for the hero's story, was just obnoxious. If you can overlook that fact and enjoy the supernatural heaven/hell, angels/demons type of story, you'll probably really enjoy this.

Not much new here 23 April 2014
By Joseph Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've always been a great fan of Templesmith's art. He's incredible. But his style only really lends itself to one type of comics: a hitman (or cop) who, through dabbling in the underworld, comes in contact with demons and/or angels. My three star review reflects what I see as very familiar terrain in this comic.

Despite the repetition in Templesmith's work, I think that Straczynski may be able to rein him in. The conceit of the book - that the main character gets to spend 5 minutes with his lost love, Laura, whenever he dies a righteous death - is novel and interesting. That conceit also allows Templesmith to shine: to depict angels in that style that defines his work. The protagonist, Joe Fitzgerald, has depth and nuance, and hopefully subsequent issues will allow Straczynski to develop new narrative opportunities in coming issues.

There are moments of brilliance in this comic, and I'm excited for the next one.

What? Been here before 19 Feb. 2014
By Breijo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's new but feels like we have been here before. Good story telling and art work is great. It feels like a short book but it's just too good and you can't out it down. Big fan of the work. Can't wait for the other books.
