Cari Seltz e un ispettore assicurativo., un marito amorevole e un padre devoto. Nixon è un folle omicida esattore delle tasse, che scambia la città per un campo di battaglia di cui lui è l'indiscusso signore. Unità Quattro è l'assassino robotico definitivo e l'ultima speranza per i servitori meccanici suoi simili. Tutti questi aspetti sono rinchiusi nella stessa, psicotica identità che muove i suoi passi in un deformante incubo della post-modernità, ridotta ad un ibrido cibernetico-umano.

A crazy bloodbath dystopian horror story (really just a slim short story) most sane people would not want to read. Originally published in 1990, re-released by Dark Horse for your viewing "pleasure." But it has some amazing (and at the same time horrific, be warned) intricate art work by Geoff Darro Leggi tutto
The story makes very little sense, some kind of Blade Runner type thing. But the art is the reason to check this book out. Geof Darrow draws the most intricate pages in comics. You can stare at them for hours like some kind of demented, violent Where's Waldo?
"Authorities deny rumors that killer robots have left as many as five hundred dead in Hollywood . . . " -- TV news reporter "If he's finally lost it, there'll be hell to pay." -- a 'child' in front of the TV set Yeah, there's hell to pay . . . for some of the readers. Taking a cue from Ridley Scott's Leggi tutto
Blade Runner + Heironymus Bosch + Where's Waldo pretty much equals Hard Boiled. This book may ostensibly have a plot, and Frank Miller may ostensibly have written the many onomatopoetic monosyllables induced by stab wounds and tractor trailer collisions, but the only reason to flip through these pag Leggi tutto
You realize the sumptuousness of violence--how this is even a possibility--with the help of Frank Miller. And the theme, how outside but ruthless forces make and break a man, a person, is stellar, futuristic, oh so right. This is a Hollywood movie, right? A series on Netflix, huh? Somewhere?
The art feels a little like Where's Waldo but for adults... definitely for adults.
Πως έτυχε και αγόρασα το "Hard Boiled": Νοέμβρης μήνας, Μαύρη Παρασκευή, και είχα ήδη στα χέρια μου δυο κόμικς και έψαχνα ένα τρίτο, για να ισχύει η προσφορά "τρία στην τιμή των δυο". Εκεί που έψαχνα, λοιπόν, το μάτι μου έπεσε στο συγκεκριμένο. Το καταπληκτικό εξώφυλλο, η σκληρόδετη έκδοση, ο τίτλος Leggi tutto
This stuff is crazy! Plot is convoluted, disturbing, and not easy to grasp. But the artwork is extreme! Each frame consists of thousands of objects, with each object very minutely portrayed. Its like peeking inside one's head! Subconscious head! Because consciously one cannot grasp that much. Vehicles Leggi tutto
One of the most insane graphic novels I've ever read. The fast-paced story seems nonexistent at first glance, but it develops as the chaos escalates. Literally, it's chaos. Throughout the whole book, 'Carl' is battling a robot, causing a tremendous amount of anarchy and destruction as he rampages th Leggi tutto
I received this from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Just a couple of words to describe this one: weird and weird. Normally, I like Frank Miller, but this is just way beyond his "normal". The one thing that I did like was the incredible amount of detail in the artwork.
