Hardboiled put Geoff Darrow on the comics map. This collaboration with Frank Miller is totally over the top and has influenced every artist working in this territory/vein ever since. Both at the level of detail and the level of violence, Hardboiled is completely bonkers. Together these aspects combine to create a truly biting satire of America. Now collected in hardcover for the first time (in North America). Another timely re-release from Dark Horse. This edition has been entirely recolored by Dave Stewart, whose went for a somewhat darker/subdued look and the color more modulated/nuanced as compared to the original, bolder coloring by Claude Legris. Some will prefer this version, others will prefer the original, but they're both good!
