Item description for Kissing Chaos Volume 1 by Arthur Dela Cruz...
Three kids, stuck in a very bad situation, coming from different walks of life and different haunted pasts, end up in the same stolen car on the run from the law... and then things get a bit crazy. Angela was raised in a life of privilege, but things aren't always as pretty on the inside as they are on the outside. She carries a terrible secret that could ruin the whole facade, something even Damien-her hero, her angel, her object of romantic obsession-may not even know. He stumbled into her life by accident, and he hasn't been able to get out. And Raevyn? Just call it the wrong place at the wrong time, being up to no good in a no-good part of town. It's broken locks and screeching tires as sirens fade behind them. What lies ahead is a road full of amoral killers, a blood-hungry media, and mysterious men in overcoats and fedoras who always seem to be wherever the trio goes. Written and drawn by Eisner-nominee Arthur Dela Cruz. Check out his site at http://www.kissingchaos.com

Beautiful from cover to cover Aug 18, 2003
This book blew me away. The art and storytelling are so complimentary, it makes the experience of reading this trade paperback truly amazing. The art was definitely the first aspect that drew me in, then the story pulled me closer and wouldn't let go. I highly recommend checking this out. Arthur Dela Cruz is a rare talent, this artist excells at more than one medium, and this read is surely proof of that. I found myself lingering on pages long after reading the words, taking in the art. Then, found myself later to be thinking about the words I had just read and considering all the twists and turns that had happened. Wonderful. Enjoy this book.
Beautiful Art and a Story Like No Other Aug 9, 2003
This collection of Arthur Dela Cruz's Kissing Chaos series was a great read. The art pulled me in and the writing pulled me closer. I've always been a fan of "on the run" stories, and this book was no exception. Chances are, you haven't seen art like this much before. A combination of medias that when combined, made perfect sense. Keep your eyes open for the now available comic book entitled "Kissing Chaos-1000 Words". It continues the story of Damien & Angela and sheds new light on events from the first collection. I recommend this trade paperback 100%.
Beautiful Chaos Apr 11, 2003
This is one of the most beautiful comics i have ever seen. ADC's use of grey's to create an almost surreal mood is wonderful. The story itself is also surreal, you never know what is really going on, kinda like watching a David Lynch movie. If you like Lynch, I suspect you'll like this too. Can't wait for the rest of the series' to come out, i can't wait to see where the road ends. I find ADC's website useful, [website] for when you want to find out info on the next series' and some samples from the book if you want to take a look. And if you want to get your girlfriend into comics, this is the perfect choice.
On the road to adventure Mar 28, 2003
I remember hearing rumors about Kissing Chaos when it was first published. When Oni announced they were releasing a collection of the first series, I suddenly became entrenched in intrigue. I ran out and bought most of the issues, unable to wait for the trade. The story and art were fascinating. A great deal of the events and characters are shrouded in mystery, which adds a huge ammount to the epic nature of the tale. This collection is well-worth a close look. First, it collects the entire first storyarc into one book. Second, it has a bunch of backup stories orginally printed online and at conventions. It also features Dela-Cruz's sketchbook and a how-to on his coloring technique. Finally, the unique size of the graphic novel makes it look just like a paperback novel, so no one knows you're reading comics! I am in eager anticipation of the next collection.
Best Comic i've read in a while Mar 28, 2003
I'm not a huge comic collector, but this stands out as the best series I own. The story is well written and the artwork is amazing, creating a great book about kids running away from the law. Reading it, you will get the feeling that this could be easily turned into a film, or be right out of a regular novel, which makes it great to buy even if you don't normally read comics or graphic novels. I'd highly recommend this to anyone, whether you own a huge collection of action comics and appreciate great graphic novels, or if you've never really liked comics and was looking to just start getting into them. After reading this one several times over, it seems clear that Arthur Dela Cruz will soon become a big name in the comic world.
