Amazing art Sooo much details But didn t get the story at first and was a bit too confused but the ending sort of made up for it Too many loose ends for my taste though p Hard Boiled Frank Miller Carl Seltz , Nixon Unit Four , Frank Miller Darrow , Dark Horse. Blade Runner Heironymus Bosch Where s Waldo pretty much equals Hard Boiled This book may ostensibly have a plot, and Frank Miller may ostensibly have written the many onomatopoetic monosyllables induced by stab wounds and tractor trailer collisions, but the only reason to flip through these pages is to marvel at Geoff Darrow s unspeakably intricate and profane linework Every single panel contains at least thousands, if not tens of thousands, of tiny little objects, most of them wrappers, needles, porn, armaments, and bits of recently combusted mechanical devices If there are people and there are often hundreds of them , they are inevitably eating, having sex, getting high, or committing heinous acts of violence, usually in combination It s revolting It s baroque It s awesome Darrow wouldn t just draw, say, a glass of water He d draw some circuit encrusted styrofoam chalice with multiple buttons labeled sugar, caffeine, cocaine, and orgasm Darrow is probably best known for creating much of the conceptual artwork behind the Matrix movies, and you can definitely see how his sense of grime and detail fed into the look of those films Interestingly, he also delights in capturing high speed action in media res, particularly multiple car crashes in which all the drivers are simultaneously smashing through their windshields and the contents of trucks usually candy and or livestock are suspended in midair Made me think of bullet time. The art feels a little like Where s Waldo but for adults definitely for adults. One of the most insane graphic novels I ve ever read The fast paced story seems nonexistent at first glance, but it develops as the chaos escalates Literally, it s chaos Throughout the whole book, Carl is battling a robot, causing a tremendous amount of anarchy and destruction as he rampages through the city looking for ways to stop his current target and also later on find out what s truth and what s lie It s a strange, straightforward book, for sure, with lots of graphic ultraviolence and bizarre sexual imagery.Which leads to the best part about this book Geof Darrow s insane, intricate artwork The two page spreads are especially unbelievable, with hundreds of people literally squeezed into a wide shot of a city street or a big hallway Every piece of clothing has its share of wrinkles every wall has cracks, tires have realistic treads, cars and buildings are all uniquely detailed to the point of obsession You can even see the straps on a guy s sandals in the background among a crowd of people in a panel or spread that would roughly translate to about two or three city blocks Each and every panel is over crowded the whole book is practically a manic, adult sci fi version of Where s Waldo, but not in an indecipherable way, and it compliments the chaotic action scenes that tear through the book s pages.The action scenes are absolutely outrageous in ways that would put even the most intense and over the top John Woo directed battle sequence to pants soiling shame With Darrow s artwork and Miller s creative writing, it all fits together into three short issues of complete and utter cyberpunk insanity.Another of the book s strengths is that it s always moving While it s choked with extreme imagery of almost every kind surprisingly there isn t a single curse word throughout the entire book in every panel, the story never stops moving full throttle It s zooming for the brick wall and nothing can ever stop it not even the brick wall. This stuff is crazy Plot is convoluted, disturbing, and not easy to grasp.But the artwork is extreme Each frame consists of thousands of objects, with each object very minutely portrayed Its like peeking inside one s head Subconscious head Because consciously one cannot grasp that much.Vehicles colliding and you see every particle under the hood forming dents.City streets So many people indulging in different activities Legal and illegal And you can catch the expression of than a 100 people You have to see this to believe it Perfect 5 for the artwork Did not like anything else. I received this from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Just a couple of words to describe this one weird and weird Normally, I like Frank Miller, but this is just way beyond his normal The one thing that I did like was the incredible amount of detail in the artwork. The most grotesque and disturbing cyberpunk world you ll ever visit, the artwork is so good and detailed it manages to tell the story on its own, the only reason I don t give this book the perfect score is because some of these pages feel out of place and the story felt a bit incomplete, otherwise this would have been a masterpiece. The story makes very little sense, some kind of Blade Runner type thing But the art is the reason to check this book out Geof Darrow draws the most intricate pages in comics You can stare at them for hours like some kind of demented, violent Where s Waldo `Download Book ↵ Hard Boiled ☟ Intricate, Kinetic, And Thoroughly Outrageous Rolling StoneWinner Of Comics Prestigious Eisner Award Carl Seltz Is A Suburban Insurance Investigator, A Loving Husband, And Devoted Father Nixon Is A Berserk, Homicidal Tax Collector Racking Up Mind Boggling Body Counts In A Diseased Urban Slaughterhouse Unit Four Is The Ultimate Robot Killing Machine And The Last Hope Of The Future S Enslaved Mechanical Servants And Somehow They Re All The Same Psychotic Entity Frank Miller And Geof Darrow Have Created A Visual Masterpiece
