Revolver: Matt Kindt

Another great new graphic novel I read this morning was Matt Kindt's new book from Vertigo called Revolver. Matt Kindt broke into comics in a big way with his Pistolwhip series of graphic novels, written by Jason Hall, and published by Top Shelf. The past few years, Kindt produced a couple of Super Spy graphic novels and 3 Story The Secret History of Giant Man, but for me, Revolver, ranks up there with the best of his Pistolwhip comics.

What is Revolver about? Revolver is a kind of post 9-11 story, a look at how the different decisions we make daily affects our future, and involves alternate realities (so how could I not love this book - grin!). This is a GREAT story, with GREAT characters, and GREAT art (unfortunately, the interior art page I've included here doesn't click to its larger size so please stop by my store when you get a chance, or your neighborhood comic store, to see Matt Kindt's unique art style if you're unfamiliar with his work)!

Revolver has a very interesting kind of duo tone color scheme, has a really nice hardcover presentation, and is only $24.99 for 170 pages. If you have to choose between just getting Eddie Campbell's The Playwright or Matt Kindt's Revolver, well you'd better have a coin on hand because I think it's too hard to choose which one you should get first, but either way you're going to be left with a great graphic novel reading experience.
