Dark Rain: A New Orleans Story by Mat Johnson, Simone Gane

In the days after Hurricane Katrina, two men who fell through society's cracks travel to evacuate New Orleans to pull off the bank heist of a lifetime. Up against the clock and eluding armed competitors, the men find themselves in the middle of one of the greatest humanitarian disasters in American history. All around them, the institutions that form the pillars of our society are falling apart. Surrounded by death and misery, the men face a moral challenge greater than any other obstacle they've had to overcome. Is it possible to beat the system, even when it lies in ruins? Can they save even one person--or themselves? Or will those institutions come crashing down right on top of them?

This Vertigo crime book was more social commentary than crime fiction. While, yes, there were criminals, they were mostly stereotypes amped up to the nth degree. Mat Johnson wanted to tell a story of the government involving hurricane Katrina and he did just that. However, the fictional story with it wasn't engrossing. The art was fine but the coloring was a bit off at times. Overall, the book just wasn't that interesting and had way too many conveniences.
