Joe Canelli is a crooked cop working in a corrupt police force. Joe is haunted by nightmares of powerlessness. When his partner is brutally murdered and he's betrayed by his colleagues, it appears that Joe's nightmares are coming true. With his back against the wall there's only one thing he can do - turn against the criminal network that he once embraced. Written and illustrated by the terrific David Lloyd (artist on the incomparable V For Vendetta among other works), this is well worth checking out, mixing stylish art with a morality maze reminiscent of LA Confidential; it's especially a good price for an original graphic novel, so dive in. If you like this you should check out Joe Pruett's Untouchables or Trillos and Risso's Chicanos.
