Filler

Overview

John Dough isn't real. He doesn't matter. He's just the background in other people's lives. He's just...Filler. John survives the gritty city on the margins, filling out police line-ups and selling his plasma for a living. One day, Debra Cross - a hooker with a black eye and a sad story - struts into his life. Before he knows it, John is off, his brass-knuckled fist blazing into a tangling, twisting web of boot-kicking, limb-chopping, and triple-crossing murder.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A game attempt by the creators of Teenagers from Mars to out-Sin City Sin City, this work traces the misfortunes of a lowlife so anonymous that his name is John Dough, who makes his living as "filler" in police lineups. Dough gets involved with Debra Cross, a hooker with a heart of darkness and a black eye; Cross and his attempt to rescue her from her vicious pimp gets him beaten to a pulp and framed for murder. But Dough and a writer friend fight back, by way of a couple of rather unusual metafictional twists. This book's look is as noir as they come and clearly inspired by Frank Miller-it features thick, oozing blotches of black and shocking patches of red, straight lines arrayed into menacing sets of bars everywhere, and an entire cast of lowlifes with chiaroscuro-heavy faces who look like they've actually never seen better days, and never will. The moodiness of Rob G.'s artwork makes up for some of his drawings' dubious anatomy, and the story's Grand Guignol torrents of misery and gore eventually become kind of funny. The strength of the book isn't in its bluntly obvious symbolism or over-the-top grimness, though: it's Spears and Rob G.'s smooth, deliberate storytelling. (Apr.)

    Hrm..

    I have to say after reading the review here ('an attempt to out Sin Sin City') I expected much more that what I got. The art was shoddy. Where Frank Miller uses black and white (with minor splashes of color here and there) to create a stark, cold hard world, this was just.. scribbly. (So many panels had the femme fatale looking like a man with a garish mustache. I understand it was 'gritty' but, c'mon.) The story was mildly interesting with a few twists and turns but nothing you couldn't see coming. Had I been able to browse this book before buying it, I would not have. At least not at the price listed here.
