One Bad Day

Rate this book
For Danny, blunts keep the pain of his existence dull and bearable while chaperonin' hookers keeps the rent paid. But when a girl gets knifed on his watch, Danny can kiss all that goodbye and say hello to life on the lam. But when the cops assigned to the case are the straight-laced, God-fearing Detective Padilla and the detective-by-day/dom-by-night Sgt. Oh, Danny doesn't have a chance—but maybe the truth does. It's bondage, badges, and blackmail in this rollercoaster ride by novelist Gary Phillips (SHOT CALLERZ, PERPETRATORS) and artists Jeremy Love (Gettosake Productions) and Jeff Wasson (COPYBOOK TALES)!

This story is about a young woman who finds herself caught in an unfortunate situation, when she accompanies a friend to the hospital, after getting knocked over by a car. A mysterious assassin, connected to the hospitalised friend, pursues her, and she must figure out why and what’s going on. The story is okay, nothing cerebral or complicated to read through. It’s quite predictable at times, with some unrealistic or absurd moments. This book is amongst the author’s early work, so he must have still been developing his skills with storytelling and producing graphic novels. It’s not the best story produced, but not terrible, just a bit facile. It’s short, so the book serves well as something to read in a one to two journey on public transport or by car. The illustration in this graphic novel is okay. It’s in black/grayscale and white. The characters are slight cartoony, but have a realistic look to them and the scenery is drawn well.

Con un dibujo limpio y la intriga siempre presente, te lo devoras con mucho gusto. Me ha dejado con ganas de que hubiera sido más extenso. Espero no tener nunca un mal día como el suyo XDD.

Short but interesting crime/suspense story. Solid art but not well developed characters. Would check out more from this artist/writer.

Humanistic punk noir? It's fast paced and I liked it, but the characters seem a bit generic.

Rolston's art reminded me of early Matt Wagner, which is a very good thing.

Really strong book. The story flows well, is filled with action, and has some great plot points. I would recommend it. I rather enjoyed reading it.
