- Full Description
An enigmatic 11th century Crusader has come to render a terrible justice on the citizens of 21st century San Francisco. His acts of unspeakable violence spark a firestorm of moral soul-searching in the hearts and minds of the city's most colorful figures. Putting together the pieces of the Knight's mysteriously brutal puzzle is the voluptuous Venus Kostopikas, a fact checker for a dying newspaper with aspirations to rise above her station and lead her own crusade. First of two re-mastered volumes collects -- for the first time -- the macabre Vertigo crime series complete.
The scenes with the Crusader are impressive, as he metes out no-holds-barred justice. Our heroine Venus seems to spend more time looking good in tight outfits and sultry poses (Kelly Jones was obviously going for some prime good-girl art here) while nosing around, trying to discover who this mysterious warrior really is.
Inks by Jason Moore, Ron Randall, Mark Buckingham, and Cameron Stewart. Kelley Jones, of course, is well known for his inspired work on The Sandman, Batman, and Deadman.
"All that is noble is of a quiet nature and appears to sleep until it is aroused and summoned forth by contrast." -Goethe
