I got yer blurbs right here

The Executor's blurbage is in, and:

"Jon Evans and Andrea Mutti deliver a neat little package about big dirty secrets. This book lingers."
— Brian Azzarello, New York Times best-selling author of FILTHY RICH and JOKER.

"A razor-sharp journey into a forgotten town, where the heroes have given up, and all that is left are the broken, and the corrupt. Reminiscent of David Peace's Red Riding Quartet, Evans' prose and Mutti's spare, haunting artwork make THE EXECUTOR impossible to put down."
— Sarah Langan, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of THE KEEPER, THE MISSING, and AUDREY'S DOOR.

"In THE EXECUTOR, Jon Evans and Andrea Mutti have taken many of the time-honored tropes of the Roman Noir--a fallen hero, a lost love, deeply buried secrets--and run with them in a direction that is constantly surprising and refreshing."
— Howard Chaykin, influential writer and artist of AMERICAN FLAGG!, BLACK KISS, BLACKHAWK, and AMERICAN CENTURY.

"A moody, savage story about the sticky spider web of history bred by small-town betrayals, abuses of power, and miscarriages of justice. It will make you squirm."
— Elizabeth Bear, Hugo Award-winning author of CHILL and THE SEA THY MISTRESS.

"They say you can never go home, and THE EXECUTOR is the dark yarn that proves it. In a small town with big secrets, the past just won't stay buried. Everything's connected, everyone has something to hide, and nobody gets out of here clean..."
— Andy Diggle, author of THE LOSERS and HELLBLAZER.

"THE EXECUTOR is the ultimate noir thriller--a gripping, heart-wrenching descent into a hellish past that grabs you by the throat on the first page and refuses to let go until the devastating conclusion. Evans has created one of the most memorable anti-heroes of recent years and Mutti's artwork masterfully captures this tragic tale's big and small moments. THE EXECUTOR should be at the very top of everyone's pull list."
— Jason Starr, best-selling author of THE CHILL and PANIC ATTACK.
