Item description for The Killer Volume 1 by Matz , Luc Jacamon & Edward Gauvin...
A man solitary and cold, methodical and unencumbered by scruples or regrets, the killer waits in the shadows, watching for his next target. And yet the longer he waits, the more he thinks he's losing his mind, if not his cool. A brutal, bloody and stylish noir story of a professional assassin lost in a world without a moral compass, this is a case study of a man alone, armed to the teeth and slowly losing his mind.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Killer Volume 1?
Crime Epic! Jul 25, 2008
I decided to purchase this book when there was a plan for David Fincher to translate it to the big screen. Regardless of whether it will materialize or not, this book is a magnificent graphic novel that offers fresh take on hitman storyline. Our nameless protagonist's thoughts are provocative and sometimes downright relatable to the dark side that inhabits anyone of us. The artwork is superb, rendered in a clean lined style that makes you crave for more. A fresh offering for graphic novel enthusiasts.
Gripping portrait of an assassin Feb 8, 2008
Matz has written an amazingly deep, amazingly gripping thriller that deals with the inner conflicts of a fascinating character. This really stretches what can be done with character depth in a graphic novel. I'd rank this on the level of Frank Miller's Dark Knight and Alan Moore's Watchmen. It's amazing how much empathy I had for the assassin.
I know there are several more volumes in the original French already published. I'm tempted to get them from this site.fr and push my bad French, so I don't have to wait for the English translations to continue the story.
refreshing Nov 25, 2007
One of the best new graphic novels that I have read in years. Definately a must read, must own.
Killing is an art, and the french have made a masterpiece! Oct 22, 2007
This story about the journey of a hitman will definitely become a movie. It shows you not only the inner workings of the french writers mind, but also a new and fresh view of an assassin's. This is one of my new favorites! Don't hesitate to buy this, even Blair Butler pushed it on Fresh Ink on g4tv, on oct 19 2007 episode of attack of the show.
