In Limerick City, Jimmy "Hardy" Savage is a gangster on the rise, facing trouble from all sides. With the local cops, rival gangs, his best mate, and his mammy all out to stick a knife in him, will the bollocks live long enough to get to the top? More importantly, will he pay me back for that fiver I gave him last week?
From the savage minds of DECLAN SHALVEY (All-Star Batman, INJECTION), PHILIP BARRETT, and JORDIE BELLAIRE (Vision, THEY'RE NOT LIKE US) comes an original Irish graphic crime novel that'll leave you gaspin'...for a pint!

    Savage Town met my expectations fully. And probably bypassed them, too. It's among my top books for the year. (And, yes, I'm aware I've already said that countless times this year " but I'm just saying that if I were to try to come up with a list of, like, say my top five books it would be really fucking hard to narrow it down). This is the perfect book to read on a dreary, rainy afternoon. I wouldn't call this a depressing book, kind of but not really. Just that it's true to life. I'm left with the strong feeling that there's no way in fuck things work out for any of these characters in the long run. And that's okay. Because that's life. It doesn't work out all that good for any of us at the end. Read Full Review

    The team have created a rich world around a familiar narrative archetype, but considering their desire to tell more tales, it's a solid start for Shalvey's long-form storytelling, and hopefully a fitting prologue for more Savage Town in the future. Read Full Review
