CM Podcast 291 – Reckless (Comic OGN 2020)

Taken from the Image Comics website:

Sex, drugs, and murder in 1980s Los Angeles, and the best new twist on paperback pulp heroes since The Punisher or Jack Reacher.

ED BRUBAKER and SEAN PHILLIPS, the modern masters of crime noir, bring us the last thing anyone expected from them—a good guy. A bold new series of original graphic novels, with three books releasing over the next year, each a full-length story that stands on its own.

Meet Ethan Reckless: Your trouble is his business, for the right price. But when a fugitive from his radical student days reaches out for help, Ethan must face the only thing he fears…his own past.

I purchased Reckless this past Wednesday and devoured it like a dog with a t-bone steak. Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips (with Jacob Phillips on colors) put out another fantastic read set in the Criminal Universe.

With help from my long time friend, Hector (who never reads comics), I give a spoiler free review to try can convince Hector that he should consider picking up this comic. I get Hector to judge a book by it’s cover – he looks at the above cover art and tells me what he believes will be in the comic.

Also in the podcast, I explain the connection between Folk singer, Bob Dylan, The Weather Underground – a 60s and 70s domestic terrorist group, Nuclear Existential Dread and The A-Team have to do with this comic.
