Item description for Abel by William Harms...

Set in Friend, Nebraska during World War II, Abel is the story of racism, betrayal, and murder. At the center is thirteen-year- old John Vitosh, a lonely boy who lives under the constant violence of his older brother Philip. Friendless, John is taken under the wing of Mr. Mar, a Chinese man-servant for the wealthy Mr. Harrison, but it is a friendship which threatens to not only rip apart the Vitosh family, but the entire community of Friend as well. If you like Road to Perdition, you'll enjoy this compelling, sepia-toned graphic novel. Afterword by World Fantasy Award-winning author Rachel Pollack; matte-finished cover by Brian Wood.

Reviews - What do customers think about Abel?

An Ugly Truth  Jul 16, 2003
William Harms has done a wonderful job of showing us how things would work out in reality. Things aren't always the way they should be. This piece of work is not your typical feel good comic but it defintely has something to say and is worth the time of a mature reader.

It is a bold piece of work and I highly recommened it to anyone who would dare to look the world in it's ugly face.

A mirror to our world  Oct 28, 2002
Our world isn't a pretty place, good guys don't always win, and people don't always do the right thing. Harms shows us a reflection of the uglier parts of humankind that is unfiltered and unflinching. While the art isn't cutting edge, the story is evergreen. This tale definitely isn't predictable, at least, not if you're used to homogenized Hollywood fluff. It does a good job of tricking you into thinking you know where you're headed and then taking you somewhere else. And to be honest, that "somewhere else" isn't a very nice place. But it is a place that exists in our world and shouldn't be ignored. While Abel story is set many decades ago, the themes of hatred, fear, and ignorance are still alive and well today.

Bottom Line: I'm glad I picked up Abel, and I think you will be too.
