9781593074692: Concrete Volume 4: Killer Smile (Concrete (Graphic Novels)) (v. 4)

Standing in the shadow of celebrity has its ups and downs, as Concrete’s personal assistant, Larry Munro, knows all too well. But there are darker places than any shadow, as Larry learns the hard way when he is taken hostage by a psychotic gunman who forces Larry to be his chauffer on a road trip destined to end in disaster... unless Larry can muster the courage to act.

The return of Paul Chadwick's award-winning Concrete has ushered in a resurgence of interest in the acclaimed series, and Killer Smile is Chadwick’s darkest Concrete work, a harrowing tale Frank Miller called "edge-of-your-seat suspense, full of unpredictable twists and turns." This value-priced volume collects Killer Smile plus bonus short stories.

From Booklist:

Chadwick's stories about a tenderhearted guy whose intelligence has been put in a huge, granitelike body with heightened strength and senses are usually quiet dramas that belie superhero conventions by focusing on Concrete's undemonstrative use of his powers to make a small difference. Killer Smile departs from that norm. It's a fast-paced nail-biter in which Concrete takes a backseat, while a psychopathic gunman and his troubled girlfriend take Larry Munro, Concrete's personal assistant, hostage. Tension builds as mild-mannered Larry wonders whether he'll have the courage to act should opportunity arise, and Concrete helplessly stands by as police get in a standoff with Larry's captors. Chadwick's hyperdetailed drawings and cinematic, though text-heavy, storytelling make the suspense tangible right up to the emotionally fraught climax, in which Concrete's fearsome demeanor and persuasive powers prove more useful than his strength and invulnerability. Short stories in which Concrete retreats to the desert to write, attends a Halloween party, and shares Christmas with Larry's family, and 13 horror vignettes sans Concrete, round out the volume.
