Filthy Richby Brian Azzarello, Victor Santos
Richard "JUNK" Junkin has always lived on the edge of trouble. A former professional football star who's career was cut short by injury (and gambling problems), he now finds himself selling cars in New Jersey, dreaming of what-might-have-been and lusting after his boss's unbelievably spoiled, unbelievably sexy and unbelievably rich daughter, Victoria. So when the boss asks him to be her personal bodyguard as she tears up the New York City club scene, he leaps at the chance. But before long Junk becomes more of a lapdog than a chaperone, doing all of Victoria's dirty work...up to, and including, murder. This is the story of FILTHY RICH--the story of a disgraced man with a chip on his shoulder whose best years are behind him, dropped in the middle of a group of over-privileged rich girls ruthlessly competing with each other. For the love of a filthy rich girl (that he knows in his heart won't redeem him), he'll do whatever it takes because he just can't resist the hell of a ride she takes him on...in the fast lane. Without any brakes.

Vertigo has figured it out! Hard bound graphic novels that can be carried and shared easily. There is more in this series and I expect these type of novels to be around! Great story and with great art. The tpye of story you get mad at loved ones when they interupt you.
My main reason for reading this was that it was written by Brian Azzarello. That’s why I’m so surprised how much I didn’t like it. The overall plot was tedious and predictable. There was no character that was interesting. The dialogue was very cliché. The art by Victor Santos was serviceable but at times certain characters were hard to differentiate between. Overall, this is one of the weaker of the Vertigo Crime books I’ve read.
