It's about broken lives, how they break over time, and showing the cumulative effects of bad decisions, violence, abuse, anger and rage, and crime.
Not every story seems to be connected, but I think if you read more of them and pay a bit more attention, you will find more. Kinda like Pu ...more

Whatever way they are read, the art is consistently first class, the mood deliciously evoked and even if the story telling occasionally wobbles, it never falls over. And when it's good, it's very good.

A series of black and white violent stories, all inter-connected, jumping about from one time period to another.
There’s a fair amount of violence, some of it mindless. The stories are all connected but zap aback and forth in time. If this is not read in one go, it’s difficult to remember where everyone fits in because of the flashbacks and flash-forwards.
Quite entertaining but not really my cup of tea.
Recommended to those who like comics about hard living.
