The black and white illustrations lend the perfect feel to this tale of sin and redemption. Violent and fast-paced this graphic novel provides action, a compelling story and well-developed characters. I couldn't put it down once I picked it up and was pleased to discover a sequel of sorts, On the Road, which fleshes out three different points in time in the original story. While I am not a huge fan of graphic novels- I either love them or hate them- I highly recommend both of these titles, which can be read in one sitting of 1-2 hours. But be warned: once you pick them up you won't be able to put them down.
