From what I have read of the series, I will tell you that the dialogue is incredibly well written and intense. The artwork alone is enough to buy the book.
It’s a fascinating comic…worth a look if you’re interested in this time period and the sordid history of New York.
It reads like an adventure through a bygone age. It feels like Charles Dickens and Martin Scorcese collaborated on a period piece and this was the fruit of their work. It’s powerful, shocking, funny and speaks a lot about the human condition.
Bowery Boys: Our Fathers is a fascinating read that will educate and enamour the reader with its rich and gripping story. The artwork complicates the writing perfectly, and the team of Levine, Bertram and McKee are certainly one to look out for in the future.
