    A french masterpiece !

    It's one of the best european comics strips I've read in age !
    The caracter isn't a good guy, but he work on cynical edge of survival that lie deep inside of all of us. The beginning of this episode is also the beginning of the end of this story arc, which is compelling, badass and cold, like all the series before.
    I like the way the writer blurr the way between good, bad, into an uneasy grey zone and the struggle for survival.
    It seems to me that the art is very cool,warm color countering the cold of most of the character and stuation.
      The violence in this comic is low, but each time it's coming out, it's very brutal, and unglamorous.
      Most of the european comics strip are now often being influenced by manga, or fantasy which is sometimes a good thing, and most of the time a bad one. This one is one of the best because it remain very old style, but remix it with a new and yet mature tone that is difficult to ind these day.
      The character evolve, move, and I feeled compelled by the fate of each one of them, even the worst of them.
      I've heard these time that it will be adapted in a movie. 'm not sure of the quality, but it definitely deserve the try.
      This is a noir comic strip that won't let you indifferent,but in a very good sense.

The main character, called Killer through out, is a hit man working in France for the mafia as a freelance hit man, he botches a hit and finds the very people he was working for originally gunning for him.  The story revolves around Killer’s quest to find out who sicked the dogs on him and put an end to them before they put an end to him. That’s the summary of the story from what I can gather as I read this i...

      The Life of a Hitman 0

      This is the story of a hitman who has become a target after failing a job. I won't get into the story too much, it's a little in depth. Overall, I liked what I was reading. The dialogue was well written, but there was a lot of it. I don't mind reading so much if it is done well and it made me feel as though I was on the inside with them, a part of their gang.   The Killer and his ally Marciano were both likable characters, for what they are anyway. More likable than the other mobsters they were ...
