Bestselling crime noir masters Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips (Reckless, Pulp, My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies, Criminal, and Kill or Be Killed) bring us a new, third original graphic novel starring troublemaker-for-hire Ethan Reckless. It’s 1988 and Ethan has been hired for his strangest case yet: finding the secrets of a Los Angeles real estate mogul. And he’s got an interesting anarchist girl who’s helping, strange as THAT seems. This will soon take a deadly turn, and find Ethan risking everything that still matters to him.

Inspired by great action series like Parker, Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have created a damaged, vulnerable hero you really care about, who narrates the story as he moves through it.

Since reading Pulp, I’ve become a big fan of Brubaker’s work and I really like this new series. Rather than a series of comics, this was created during the COVID virus and it was written and published as complete in each episode, original graphic novels. I’ve read them out of order, the 2nd first, but that almost made them more fun as he slowly reveals a bit more about our boy’s past and how differently his mind works. At the moment, this book 3 is intended to cap off the series, but like the long-running Criminal, I sure hope we see more of Ethan. -Bud

The best new twist on paperback pulp heroes since The Punisher or Jack Reacher.

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, the modern masters of crime noir, bring us the last thing anyone expected from them: a good guy. Meet Ethan Reckless. Your trouble is his business, for the right price.

“Imagine Redford at his peak, ambling through sun-drenched, eighties L.A. in a serpentine plot that is equal parts Long Goodbye and Point Break. No one does crime fic like Brubaker and Phillips and their collaboration has never felt more new. Explosive. Vital. And yes… reckless. I love this book.” – Damon Lindelof (Lost, HBO’s Watchmen)

“Reckless is an absolute rush: on the same level as golden age Travis McGee novels and the hardest-hitting Richard Stark stories. This one comes at you as fast as Steve McQueen in a souped-up Mustang and as hard as Charles Bronson with a baseball bat. You gotta have it.” – Joe Hill (Locke & Key, N0S4A2)
