Shelves: too-short, crime, reviewed
Being only about 72 pages long, this one's over way too quickly. And since it is so short, things naturally evolve (and get resolved) at a quick pace. I for one would've liked to read more about the characters. Oh well, maybe there'll be a follow-up someday... Chaykin certainly left the door open on that end.

Recommended to fans of Howard Chaykin or crime fiction.

I read this as monthly??? installments in Dark Horse Presents.
It's basically Chaykin writing and drawing Chaykin.

If you want to read a quickie from Chaykin, then this is as good as any of his others, but there are

Shelves: comics
Violent revenge crime stuff, a mashup of Thief and Breaking Bad and a bunch of other stuff. It never caught fire for me... I can tell when I'm into Howard Chaykin, because I don't notice that he can only draw one face for men and one for women.

Another classic Chaykin.
Dark grey sex, murder, mayhem laced with realism and cynicism.
