American Monster VOL 01
(W) Brian Azzarello (A/CA) Juan Doe. The ugliest side of humanity may be humanity's only hope. Collecting the first five issues of Brian Azzarello's (100 Bullets* Dark Knight III) latest masterpiece* with horrifically* beautiful artwork from Juan Doe (Fantastic Four* Joker's Asylum). In a small Midwestern town* a large man with a horribly scarred face gets off a bus* and takes a room. He spooks the locals-nobody knows him-or do they? It's impossible to say be-cause he seemingly has no face. The man's intentions remain unknown* until he takes on a corrupt sheriff and the rural crew of racist arms dealers. The town's impression of the man changes* and he's seen as a hero...until his real intentions bubble to the surface. The man isn't there to end the gang* but to take it over. And he's just getting started.
