Andrew VachssU writing has been described as "hypnotically violent ... made up of equal part broken concrete block and razor wire" (Chicago Sun-Times), and "short and choppy, like the ticking of a time bomb" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). In this graphic novel, dozens of comics writers and artists bring to life 20 of VachssU trademark life-at-ground-zero stories.

Horrible people doing terrible things to even more horrific people. Vachss pull no punches in this short story collection with adaptations by some great artists. Great stuff by Gary Gianni, Geof Darrow, Dave Gibbons and David Lloyd. Not for the faint of heart! Read full review

Gobbled this one up. Need to find the story collection these are based on, if there is one. Seriously good stuff. Was surprised and happy to find Charles de Lint getting mean with the adaption for 'Born Bad', too. Read full review
