A dark knight kind of
is the setting for this book. It is
populated by a wide variety of losers.
All the characters seem to be caricatures. The kind of protagonist is a failed
chef. Rudi and Buck were friends and
then weren't and were again, maybe. Gotham City
I found the book very difficult to get into. It is colorful and the characters are interesting. Injal Skube and Killer Hrapp provide some comic relief with their heavy handed thuggery and personal asides. Fat Jack Bloom was a real thug who was more sadly comical than the government thugs. The book seems to revels in sarcastic humor.
This book seemed like a graphic novel translated into a no graphic novel. It never really grabbed me.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
