The most famous actor on Broadway in the 1920s gets mugged, beaten up and left for dead. He loses his looks, his acting job, his money, his apartment, his girl - everything. But it's what he does next that gets interesting. The results are quite theatrical.
This comic had me pleasantly intrigued , the story kept me interested and flipping the pages all night long . The story takes place in the 1920s when Rudy Burns, a famous actor is beaten up after a night of drinking . He is hurt so badly that he looses his job, his girlfriend and well everything in his life he held dearly. But when he does something totally different and well a little bit dangerous . Things get really interesting
First off i fell in love with the graphics in this one . It has such a great noir feel to it , it is gritty and dark . The way i love my comic books . You will notice that the graphics change just a little when the story calls for it . The characters are gritty and determined to make things work in the jobs they have chosen . You see Rudy go from pretty boy actor to as tough as nails fighter in the ring . He uses the looks to his advantage even when he is beaten up and looking not so good . I really found Rudy to be very relatable he is a guy just trying to make it any way he can . Even if it is not legal.
I totally enjoyed reading this book and i loved the characters and the story line . I didn't realize that there would be a book two . I am hoping there would be a book two . So if you want a great graphic novel to read this Christmas this the book for you .
