The Foolkiller delivers his own brand of justice
By M&C News Oct 3, 2007, 21:16 GMT
Your notion of justice is about to be turned on its head as one tortured man comes face-to-face with a new kind of vigilante in Foolkiller #1 (of 5).
Written by L.A Times Best-Selling author Gregg Hurwitz, penciled by fan favorite Lan Medina and in the tradition of the acclaimed Punisher, this mature readers series from MAX explores the concept of justice in a society torn apart by sin. When someone crosses the line and commits a crime, there's one man who will dole out the punishment that fits the crime...no matter the cost.
The Foolkiller is a hero to some, a terror to others, but most of all, he's a man who will show you the truth about the darkest corners of life. This gritty, relentless MAX limited series doesn't pull any punches, taking a hard look at the world around us.
"Foolkiller is by one of my favorite crime-thriller authors, Gregg Hurwitz, doing what he does best: writing a relentlessly gritty, L.A. noire fable featuring the most disturbing villains and morally gray protagonist since Garth Ennis put the screws to Frank Castle," said Executive Editor Axel Alonso. "When the Foolkiller is your best option, God help you."
Is the Foolkiller a madman or a savior in disguise? Is he a man of justice or a man of terror? There are no easy answers to be found in Foolkiller #1, but by the end of this jaw-dropping limited series, there's only one question you'll be asking: are you a fool? Because if you are a fool, you can't hide from the Foolkiller.
Please note that Foolkiller #1 (of 5) is intended for mature readers only.
