This seems to an original graphic novel first published in France with this American edition from Dark Horse. The script and art is by David Lloyd who is best known, of course, as the artist on V for Vendetta but I also have a couple of Night Raven books that he did for Marvel.

The story follows Joe Canelli, a crooked cop in a crooked city. Everything is peaceful in Franklin City until one of the main gang leaders is taken out. Rather than starting a gang war, this event shatters the reciprocal a...more

Noir police thriller in the classic tradition. No surprises here but that's not a bad thing, just a very traditional story. Of course, the artwork is superb.

La trama
(Solo un assaggio, eh).
Joe Canelli è un poliziotto corrotto in una città di poliziotti corrotti: a Franklin City vige un patto segreto di convivenza pacifica tra crimine e forze dell'ordine, oliato dallo scorrere delle mazzette. Questo sistema collaudato inizia a deragliare quando in un apparente agguato viene ucciso Ricky Zed, uno dei boss locali (dovrebbe essere una citazione da Pulp Fiction? "Zed's dead"?). Da quel momento, le pattuglie che fann...more

I've got it in a Box. It was really something new, reading a crime comics. I don't know much about comics, so I had never heard of Kickback, and I haven't got much to say about it after reading it. Not my genre, not my type of intrigue. I did not like it at all (because it was really not my cup of tea). But it was worth trying.

Another very good comics artist thinks he can turn writer and, as is usually the case, shows why he should stick to the day job.

Just not my cup of tea at all. I may try to sell my copy to David Armstrong.

I loved the art but I wish the story had been a little less predictable.
