About the Author:

Brendan Leach is an Ignatz and Xeric Award winning Cartoonist and Illustrator. His comics have been published by Secret Acres, Top Shelf Comics, and Retrofit Comics. Brendan's illustration work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators and 33 Magazine, and his comics have been included in many collections and anthologies, including Best American Comics 2011. He used to drive a Zamboni in New Jersey, now he draws pictures in Brooklyn, NY.

From Booklist:

Leach brings a high-contrast, sharp-lined, prickly drawing style—about equal parts José Muñoz (Alack Sinner), Frank Miller (Sin City), and Egon Schiele—to bear on the fatalistic story of two black-leather-jacketed young hoods in Newark, New Jersey, in 1961. Benny and Eddie both strong-arm for a petty-crime boss, Mr. Dores, who fronts a tavern. Both boys have good girls (bad girls are available, too, sometimes as accomplices) and similarly leather-jacketed nemeses working for another crook in Asbury Park. Benny is considerably more badass than Eddie, but Dores has his eye on Eddie to move up in the organization, since Benny enjoys erupting into violence and lacks self-control. Eddie, on the other hand, worries that what he’s already done has been too much. Guess who winds up dead. Leach pulls a story right out of pulp fiction and B movies and strips it of most of the sentimental freight that weighs such stuff down, all without losing the penny-ante pathos that makes it compelling. Includes a 33-rpm flexi-disc EP of songs played during the climactic rumble. --Ray Olson
