Jon Sable is an ex merc, a bodyguard for hire, an adventurer, and a children's book writer. Mike Grell writes and draws a complex, very entertaining and realistic character. This hero has the human flaws we all experience as we travel through life. Excellent series by a fantastic writer. Highly recommended

Una persona con cuyo gusto coincido de vez en cuando me dijo que esta serie es malísima. Como su criterio suele ser caprichoso e infundado, y a mí me gusta mucho lo poco que leí de Mike Grell, queda como to-read con la esperanza de que no lo posponga mil años más.

Reflejo del cómic independiente que germinó en los Estados Unidos de los 80, la obra de Mike Grell resume desde una perspectiva adulta las obsesiones, dudas y miedos que dominaban por entonces a través de un personaje torvo y desencantado; un mercenario de feliz pasado que al perder su mundo se dedica a sobrevivir con una doble vida que le permite lujos y prestigio mientras realiza encargos peligrosos solo para probarse así. Un visión justiciera llena de claroscuros que supera con mucho los clic ...more

This was a gift based on my wife's supposed interest in African pulp. She's more interested in the Victorian Egypt of Elizabeth Peters's Amelia Peabody mysteries.

Instead of the Victorian period, 'Sable' was written in the 1980s with a feel more from the 1970s. The first few issues in this trade collection are centered in New York City. These are pretty hit-or-miss, including an assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan in front of the UN. Things get better when we go into Jon Sable's origin set in

I only discovered this series a few months back, and I was hooked from start to finish. This first IDW volume collects some of the best stories in the series including Sable's origin story. If you like action/adventure and mystery stories, this is for you.
