The new gonzo graphic novel love letter to 90s action movies by Eisner-nominated cartoonist Kyle Starks (Sexcastle, Rick and Morty). A betrayed murderess wants revenge. A hard drinking former cop wants his job back. For either to get what they want, they’re going to have to fight their way through fifteen flights of criminals, assassins, drug lords, murderers, yup, even accountants, and… KILL. THEM. ALL.
As you read above, this is basically a wild, balls to the wall, violent action movie done in homage to movies like Die Hard, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Face/Off, Hard Boiled and True Lies.
The art is very minimal, loose and cartoony but it works well with the frenetic crazy action. Also the art fits well with the tongue in cheek mood for the comic as well. It’s just as wise cracking and any other movie I mentioned above. The humor is fun and original in places.
This is basically a love letter to all those action movies.
Interesting side note. Apparently this was funded through Kickstarter and was black and white. The version I am reviewing is the edition Oni Press put out at a larger size and in color. I haven’t seen the B&W version but I would be curious to see it and compare.
I give it a 4 out of 5. If you aren’t a fan of morally questionable violence “fun” then your mileage may vary.
As of the writing of this review Oni Press’ website is behind and their webstore is closed for New York Comic Con, so if you want to read more or purchase this comic you need to go to –
