Quarry’s War #1 (Quarry’s World) by Max Allan Collins

By Pamelascott

Brand new graphic novel by Max Allan Collins, creator of the highly acclaimed long-running Hard Case Crime series Quarry, now a major TV series! 1970s Chicago and the grim brutality of the Vietnam War collide in this brand-new comic title featuring Max Allan Collins' eponymous assassin, the expert marksman and former Vietnam vet, as he receives details of his latest target from The Broker. It's an assignment that will see his past as a U.S Marine sniper come back to haunt him...


[JULY, 1972. I'd been carrying out contracts for the broker for a year and a half, give or take. This was an outfit hit and we didn't do many of those, which may surprise you]

This is my first time reading the author. I had no familiarity with the Hard Case Crime series before I read this graphic novel.

I enjoyed this graphic novel, the first episode in a series. The book is short and sets up what events will happen in further episodes.

I probably didn't enjoy it as much as I would have because I had no familiarity with the characters or events. The illustrations are really well done and I liked how the brief story has flashes of Quarry's past.

I did like what I read and will probably check out the other graphic novels and maybe even the Hard Case Crime books.
