The Troublemakers is Coming Soon

Gilbert Hernandez's eagerly awaited new original "Fritz" graphic novel, THE TROUBLEMAKERS, debuted at the Alternative Press Expo 2009. Fantagraphics has recently put the book up for pre-order here, along with several preview options. via FlogBlog

This should appeal to all fans of hardcore noir/crime fiction, such as Richard Stark, Dan J. Marlowe, and Charles Willeford. Not to mention followers of the Ed Brubaker/Sean Phillips CRIMINAL series. My personal favorite noir comic of all-time is definitely Gilbert's POISON RIVER saga, so many great characters acting so badly and ending up even worse. This promises to be more of a Gil Brewer-type wild ride, rather then the density of POISON RIVER. If, like me, you want to see this series of graphic novels by Gilbert continue, BUY THIS BOOK!
