Format: Paperback
Ed Brubaker is the king of the American Noir. With Deadenders, although still set in America, the influences are clearly from much further afield. At first glance, an easy comparison would be Akira - the biker/scooter gangs, the drugs, the post apocalyptic/post cataclysmic world, but perhaps a better comparison would be with the British Mod scene. Despite being set in the future, Quadrophenia, references to The Who and The Jam, and the fashions that Warren Pleece has dressed the characters up in, gives the book a very retro feel. However, the story is a timeless one. The light and dark between the riches of the city and the deprivation of the outer sectors is in fact very relevant today. The haves and the have-nots. It's a bit psychedelic, a bit sci-fi and time travel, very angsty, but definitely worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful series finally collected the way it should be 10 Jun. 2012
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ed Brubaker's Deadenders has finally been released in its entirety, which is something we should all stand up and cheer about. Taking place in a dystopian future 20 years after a "cataclysm" forever changed the planet, Deadenders revolves around Beezer, a young drug dealer that's a bit of a headcase, and he just so happens to be able to have occasional visions and flashes of the way the world was and how things used to be. Beezer's activities and visions attract the attention of all sorts of unsavory individuals, often putting his long-suffering girlfriend and friends in harm's way in the process. While it isn't easily accessible by any means, Deadenders is an enjoyable dystopian saga that was criminally underrated when first published in single-issue form from Vertigo way back when, and seeing it collected here in its entirety is just plain awesome. Brubaker's vision and the artwork of Warren Pleece are a wonderful match, and Deadenders still holds up wonderfully as well. All in all, check out Deadenders, you won't regret it.
4.0 out of 5 stars good dystopian story from 2000-2001 3 Feb. 2014
By Frank L. Greenagel Jr. - Published on Amazon.com

Vertigo continues to impress.

Brubaker 16 issue run from 2000-2001 was published in one volume for the first time in 2012. Here's a plot synopsis without giving anything away:
(1) 20 years ago, a cataclysm of unknown origin damaged the world's air and water supply
(2) people live in separate districts...the poor in the outskirts of the city while the rich reside in a luxurious, technologically advanced, weather controlled center part of the city
(3) the protagonist is Beezer, a 20-ish year old semi-drug dealer with family & girl problems
(4) Beezer has visions...he can see the world as it used to be
(5) once the authorities of his dystopic world realize Beezer's abilities, he must go on the run

The book has aspects of the Matrix, the Hunger Games and Trainspotting.

For $30, it's physically a flimsy trade on weak paper. Still, the content is worth the purchase.

Good sci-fi story with an alright characters. It's a post apocalyptic tale with motor scooters as the mode of transportation. Some of the story bits make me furl my eyebrows a bit and mutter, "Huh?" but overall it's a winner and sits on the top shelf to read again.
