really liked it
bookshelves: 2010, graphic-novels
Read in August, 2010

The trailer for the upcoming movie hints at the violence of this graphic novel, but has considerably more comic mischief and more of a character-driven story than the graphic novel.

A retired assassin for the CIA is drawn out of retirement by a political appointee's unwillingness to leave him alone for fear of his secrets getting out. It's a short story and quick read, punctuated by graphic violence and mayhem. It is entertaining for what little it is, but the upcoming movie is bound to be something only tenuously connected to it.
