    Best thing I ve read in a while I don t know that mentioning any aspect or combination of aspects of this book will capture what made the whole of it so good The art was great, graffiti inspired but not sloppy, and clear but with a ton of detail which rewards multiple reads Story wise, it s all over the board in a really great way oddly themed street gangs, drug addicted zombie war veterans, martial arts master thieves, sasquatch spies, an amazing super powered cat, weird demonic godfather Best thing I ve read in a while I don t know that mentioning any aspect or combination of aspects of this book will capture what made the whole of it so good The art was great, graffiti inspired but not sloppy, and clear but with a ton of detail which rewards multiple reads Story wise, it s all over the board in a really great way oddly themed street gangs, drug addicted zombie war veterans, martial arts master thieves, sasquatch spies, an amazing super powered cat, weird demonic godfathers, abducted alien women Yeah, I just can t say enough great stuff about this The only negative is that the second volume apparently got canned and won t be published at least not any time soon

    This was such a delightful surprise of a book Brandon Graham has rapidly become one of my top 10 favorite writer illustrators, and with King City it s not hard to see why The book is quirky and the art extremely intricate The story is so off the wall, but told so nonchalantly and so well that it is fully believable.If you aren t familiar with his work, pick this book up It s a great introduction to his style and a gateway to some of his crazier work Prophet.


  8. Lori Lori says:

    This is the beginning, so I ll need to read the rest But i love the story, the cat is cool, needcat.I also love all the whimsical things in the background like Vandal Sassoon familiar words and ads all twisted up in an example of the constant advertising visuals forced on us everywhere in daily life, butin the King City universe Good read, will need .


  9. Thomas Yount Thomas Yount says:

    I loved this book.I feel its necessary to create a new word or invent a phrase to describe the elements of coolness involved with a secret agent who wields his cat master whom he keeps in his bucketHaving worked with Brandon on a comic I was making before just adds to it as well.Excited for the next volume to come out


  10. Melissa Dominic Melissa Dominic says:

    one of the best graphic novels to come in most recent times interesting characters, amazing setting and an strangely engrossing plot weaved together with a unique stroke of artistic talent, you re doing yourself a diservice if you re not reading and enjoying this one.
