GN of the month: Filthy Rich

Filthy Rich by Brian Azzarello (already a hard crime favorite for the 100 bullets series), art by Victor Santos

All the standard crime noir elements are there: down on his luck ex jock "junk" junkin, dissatisfied being a NJ car salesman (and lousy at it)-- takes a job bodyguarding the owners very sexy, wild, and rich daughter Victoria.

The interior art is all black and white; a change when you are used to full color glossy comics. But if any format can work in black/white, it's crime.

This is one of the first two graphic novels from the Vertigo Crime imprint.
