Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man, Alias, Powers) teams up with Mark Andreyko to bring the story of a legendary crime fighter, a city gripped in fear, and a series of all-too-real murders to life.Based on actual events, this tale chronicles the notorious "torso" murders that took place in Cleveland during the Great Depression. As Public Safety Director, Eliot Ness was brought in to root out crooked city cops and civic corruption … only to find himself enmeshed in the hunt for a serial killer. Ness must balance dirty politicians, a pair of dogged homicide detectives and a frightened public demanding justice. Meticulously researched and incorporating actual photographs of the crime scenes and grisly corpses, Torso combines innovative storytelling techniques, edgy and distinctive artwork, and terrific dialog. This is world-class crime fiction in a comic book format.

    I wish this was available for NOOK

    I read this years ago. I remember I was riveted by it. It's a murder mystery plus gay love story.

    It broke my heart and I remember looking for hustlers to fall in love with after I read it! HAHA.

    Really, it is a great read.
