"Hard Boiled" is most definately not for children. Now that I've put that aside, I'll say that this is a great graphic novel, indeed. Mixing sexual overtones and wanton gore, "Hard Boiled" delivers a disturbing story set in a dark and futuristic world. A must for any sci-fi fan. Get it while the distributor still has this comic in store. ;)

Frank Darrow's artwork is worth the total price alone!! Frank Millers story is mind-boggeling, and deffinately not for children. I rate this book more that 5 stars easy!!!! If you are open minded with things of an adult nature and crave the ultra-violence, your bookshelf is not complete with out Frank Miller and Geof Darrow's graphic novel....."Hard Boiled"

Okay,you have Frank Miller,THE greatest writer of comics/graphic novels,and you have Geof Darrow- THE undisputed greatest comic artist of all time-and here,the two join forces to produce an award winning masterpiece! This book has it all. A great story,sure.Full of extreme ultra violence,twisted humor,and taking place in a future where ANYTHING goes. And the artwork. For anyone unfamiliar with Darrow's brand of work...imagine "Where's Waldo"...on acid! I've never been able to find out much about his history as an artist,but I think he probably must have some experience as a technical artist,(you know the type,exploded interior views of engines and the like),except those drawings are done using computer aided design...this guy uses pen and ink,and gets a whole lot more creative. And in case you're wondering what I mean by Wheres Waldo on acid,on nearly every page,you'll find literally hundreds of people,going about their bizarre,and often somewhat perverted lives,all the while there being every piece of liter you can imagine from beer cans to condoms strewn about the streets,from which you can sometimes even see through windows,and all of this carefully and skillfully drawn out with such psychotic detail that it just might blow your mind! It can sometimes take around an hour to fully enjoy some scenes,depending on size. Even after you've read the story once,(which is great by the way,I just dont want to spoil anything),you can enjoy it all over again and again. P.S.---If you like this,you'll also like "The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot"...another Miller/Darrow collaboration. Also,I hear they are discussing making Hard Boiled:The Movie,with Nicholas Cage interested in the lead. It would be great...and if they stick with the look o'the book,quite exspensive as well!
