Ty Baxter, New Liberty City’s resident genius, inventor, and Olympian, should be happy; he was just made president of the family company. But this new promotion is more than he bargained for: misappropriated funds, a looming takeover from the power corporation, and a dead body. The more he digs into it the more he unravels his life and his family’s legacy.
Maybe it is like they say: the first generation earns the money, the second generation holds it, and the third generation loses it.
Will Ty uncover the villain behind it all?

This graphic novel is a dramatic rendition of the story of the Rich Man and Lazarus. Author Randy Alcorn and artist Javier Saltares take readers into the realm of first century Jerusalem and then two very different eternal realms.
Note from Randy:
I can't tell you how excited I am about my first graphic novel, Eternity.
In my novels, and even in my nonfiction, I try to paint vivid pictures of Heaven and Hell. But when all you have is words, they must do all the “painting.” It’s very different with a graphic novel (if you’re not familiar with the term, that’s an extended comic book form). Javier Saltares, the artist, and Ben Prenevost, the colorist, have gone above and beyond in following my descriptions and adding their innovations, producing over 600 images for the book. The quantity of art in a graphic novel is remarkable. But quantity is one thing; quality is another. And this art is quality!
by Kumar Vellal (Goodreads Author)
Having spent six years at a convalescent facility in Seattle, J is desperate for a fresh start. He hopes a new life will help him escape haunting memories of a devastating failure, and of mother - a paranoid fanatical woman.
The new life begins on a bright note with a job offer from a legendary Wall Street firm. But when the reboot fails to gather momentum, J is forced to question the world he has been trying to fit himself in- a morally bankrupt world, run by godless overlords, tittering on the brink of financial Armageddon, and addicted to vampire fantasies. A world that may yet provide him with an opportunity to save mankind, and in doing so prove to mother that he is truly the Savior he has always claimed to be.
We are the stories we tell ourselves. Some are compelled to tell tales that are as fantastic as their lives have been deprived. Dark edgy and violent The Sucker is one such tale, about a man and his immaculate misconception and his quest for relevance in an indifferent world.
-----Kirkus Review (March 2013) -------------
Vellal’s debut novel tells the story of a troubled man who comes to Wall Street looking for answers.
J Cavanaugh arrives in Manhattan for a job interview with the prestigious Wall Street firm of Drake and Steiner. Despite his lack of experience, he’s hired at once … J sees his new job as a chance to have a normal life for the first time. He was raised by his disturbed mother ... and after leaving home, he spent most of his life in a Seattle clinic. As a result, he knows almost nothing about how regular people behave, but he thinks he’ll have the chance to prove himself at Drake and Steiner.
As the financial crisis (2007-2008) unfolds, the firm suffers huge losses and lays off many of its employees. Meanwhile, J begins to struggle with his delusion … he eventually believes that he’s destined to become a new Christ, equal to the original, and as he grows more dissatisfied with his job he begins to wonder if he’ll have to destroy the “creatures” behind the economic disaster.
Vellal’s portrayal of a man sliding deeper and deeper into insanity is disturbingly vivid. He uses memorable flashbacks to gradually build a picture of J's distorted home life and the baleful influence of his fanatical, mentally ill mother.
(The Sucker) will likely draw many readers into J’s funhouse world with unnerving clarity.
A disturbing vision of the financial crisis as seen through the eyes of a madman [close]
