What other readers are saying about this title:
This is a really questionable book. The artwork is spectacular, and it would be valuable to any budding graphic artist to study the techniques of Alex Toth and Jordi Bernet, but the positives end there. Torpedo, the main character, is an inelegant thug prone to racism and not above rape for "payment." There are no redeeming qualities to elevate him to the status of anti-hero: he’s just an ill-tempered goon with enough money to dress well but never enough to get anywhere in life. Perhaps it’s the translation from French into English that stripped this book of its wry humor, because mainly these short stories were depressing or repugnant, but the artwork is an excellent study.
