Space is a dangerous place, made more so by the existence of the Showman Killer, a heartless assassin, genetically engineered by an insane scientist to be devoid of any emotion, and trained to kill! The only things that give him anything approaching pleasure are destruction or money. That is, until a fateful mission throws him into the path of the mysterious and fascinating Ibis.

    Showman Killer: Heartless Hero isn't for everyone, but like everything off putting it may take a few tries before this book is fully appreciated. It doesn't hurt that the graphic novel is the brainchild of a celebrated visionary who, time and again, created some of the most evocative and controversial films and comic books over the decades. One thing is for certain: It's like nothing you've read all this year. Read Full Review

    The only thing I don't like about the artwork byNicolas Fructus is Showman Killer's ears are oddly disproportionate to his face, it seems odd. Outside of that the artwork is superb. The main characters, and side characters are drawn with a degree of realism, that can be appreciated. However the artwork shares a balance between the light and the dark, in terms of color schemes. Of course red, is featured predominantly given the violence, and gore of the story. There are other colors used but, they are mainly for background and characters. Read Full Review

    I came for the visuals and was dissatisfied with the writing and story development. The end of the novel provides an intriguing cliffhanger, but I don't know if we'll get anything different from the writing. The Showman Killer is definitely a unique comic experience, but not one everyone will enjoy. Read Full Review
