DAY TWO... Now i know that your mother told you not to talk to strangers, but here’s why it pays...
CRACK BANG BOOM CON, Argentina -- PART ONE
(now with handy phrase guide!)
So i’m sitting in this lovely outdoor cafe in Lucca, Italy eating this insanely great sliced-steak with Eduardo Risso (co-creator/artist of 100 BULLETS) and he says to me out of the blue, “Would you be interested in coming to a comic convention in my hometown of Rosario, Argentina next fall?”...hmm...let me check my schedule...uhhh, YEAH!
Vertigo Crime has published works from the likes of authors Ian Rankin, Brian Azzarello, Jason Starr, Christos Gage and many others. Today, we add two more titles to the ever growing list of excellent crime/mystery graphic novels.
In RAT CATCHER by Andy Diggle (The Losers) and artist Victor Ibanez, an FBI agent and a notorious mob hitman become involved in a thriller with a twist that keeps the action moving and the characters playing a high stakes game of cat and mouse.
I’d recommend the latest issue of SCALPED cuz nothing says “Happy Holidays” quite like a gritty crime comic about a meth-addicted, under-cover FBI agent with a heroin junkie for a girlfriend, a murdered mother, and a pretend job as an enforcer for the local Mob boss who would not hesitate to kill him if he found out the truth. God bless us all...everyone!” –Will Dennis
