30 Second Book Review:
Filthy Rich by Azzarello & Santos

This is the perfectly brilliant hard-boiled story of a former football player and failed used car salesman who gets caught up in a world of privilege, sex and danger when he is hired to be the bodyguard of a spoiled rich girl with a penchant for getting herself into the tabloids. It is a fast and fluid read. The art is fantastic and only contributes to the feel and pace of the story. I have a feeling that anyone who has enjoyed Brubaker's Criminal whould enjoy this book. It has sex, double cross, interesting characters and a glimpse at the dark side of privilege and fame. It's really good stuff.
