I must confess that I totally missed the boat on “The Losers.” It’s been a very busy year outside of comics. That said, just as I’m getting caught up on the masterpiece by Andy Diggle and Jock, I have another Diggle book to look forward to in November. This is really the sort of stuff I like, offbeat, gritty, quality goods.
From the Vertigo blog:
According to underworld legend, the Rat Catcher is a peerless assassin who specializes in silencing mob snitches. There’s just one problem—he doesn’t exist. At least, not according to the U.S. Marshals who oversee the Witness Protection Program….
Now, there’s a pile of dead bodies in a burning safe house outside El Paso. The Rat Catcher has finally slipped up, and a washed up FBI agent has one last chance to hunt him down before he disappears forever. But as the two master manhunters spiral in towards each other in a deadly game of cat and mouse, each of them hides a secret from the other—secrets that could destroy them both.
New York Times best-selling author Andy Diggle (THE LOSERS) partners with future superstar Victor Ibanez in a tense Vertigo Crime thriller that’s unrelenting to the very last twist.
