A History of Violence - John Wagner, Vince Locke pleh

A History of Violence - John Wagner, Vince Locke pleh. Guy carries off one well-planned crime as a teen, that makes him a master of hand-to-hand combat 20 years later? Vile and gratuitous in every way. Plus, I'm just really tired of the ce-acceptable gambit. Vince Locke gives us Artwork that is almost entirely and exclusively made out of hatching and cross-hatching and, for something so specialised, it really gives us expert depth of field, perspective and quick character identification; it's truly breath-taking how he achieves this with minimal outlines. Should you get A History of Violence? Absolutely!

A History Of Violence. Vince Locke & John Wagner.

A History Of Violence. This unusual little book represents a new direction for both graphic novels and mystery novels. A History Of Violence is a good, tight story of a man who believes he's escaped his criminal past until it catches up with him and his new family.

I recommend A History of Violence highly. It is one of my top five reasons for considering 2005 to have been a great year in North American film

Q: Is 'A History of Violence' based on a book? Q: Is Tom schizophrenic? Because at times, he looks and sounds like he really believes his own lies when he vehemently denies being the person Joey Cusack. I recommend A History of Violence highly. It is one of my top five reasons for considering 2005 to have been a great year in North American film.

A new edition of the hard-hitting graphic novel that inspired the Academy Award-nominated 2005 motion picture starring Viggo Mortensen, Ed Harris and William Hurt.

In this suspenseful crime story, Tom McKenna is a family man who becomes an instant media celebrity when he thwarts a robbery at his own diner – a robbery attempted by wanted murderers. McKenna’s newfound fame draws the attention of a group of merciless mobsters who have been looking to settle a score with him for over 20 years. Now, as the killers descend upon his small town in Middle America, the Brooklyn native must face the actions of his youth and relive his past history of violence as he attempts to salvage the life he has built and keep his family out of harm’s way.

I actually enjoyed this graphic novel more than the movie. It went deeper into Joey's past and how it affected his family. I didn't like his wife's response. Thought she should have been horrified that her husband had been so violent. We did see more of Joey's story actually told by him. It was a good graphic novel, but just wish the artwork had been better and in color. Costs too much for what you get.

I'm glad I got the book, which is actually a very graphic comic book that goes far beyond the film version which is "based" on the book. This book is far superior to the film, in my view, although it is so graphic that I was wincing at parts of it. Imagine whatever weapon you want - chainsaws, drills, guns, knives...and you'll find them being used in this story. The drawings are very...detailed...and my tolerance wasn't as high as it should have been to handle all that blood and gore, at least not in illustrations. I prefer to read about stuff like that. Visuals can be too intense for me.

Still, don't let me scare you off. This book was not only believable but had integrity and heart, in its own violent, grisly way. I have to admit there were times I wished I was simply reading words on a page instead of having the images thrust in my face (this may also be the reason why the film sometimes seems "watered down" compared to the book, which is so graphic that it might have turned off film audiences).

You won't find any superheroes like Batman or Superman in this book. It is the type of comic that represents real life, starting with a guy, Tom, who seems to have a pretty low key life in a very small town. He runs the diner. He's barely on anyone's radar screen, apart from the people he knows in town and his wife and kids. He has a reputation for being a decent guy, even a better than average guy with a generous heart...but he's not particularly ambitious and he certainly isn't out to make waves. In fact, he PREFERS being out of the limelight - for reasons even his own family wouldn't suspect.

Everything changes when a couple of lowlifes come to town and try to rob him. He's forced to protect himself and those in the diner and he does so with amazing skill. Even so, no one suspects that this is particularly unusual, except for the fact that this type of crime doesn't usually happen in their town. So he's the hero of the local (and even the national) media for awhile and then it seems that things will die down.

Except that they dont...and in the process, Tom is forced to examine his entire life, going back to a childhood which wasn't always so peaceful, to hidden parts of his past...and he also puts his family in danger and tests his marriage and his wife's trust.

The Graphic Novel and Movie are different enough that each should be experienced. I thoroughly enjoyed both.

This book is a definite page-turner--great illustrations, good plot filled with both empathetic and not so empathetic characters, and a wicked ending. Am looking forward to David Cronenberg's film adaptation of the same name, due to come out in 2005 with Viggo Mortensen, Mario Bello, Ed Harris, and William Hurt.

Heresy; I liked the movie better.
I haven't seen the movie version of this graphic novel, so it was refreshing to approach the book with no preconceptions. I tore through this book, enjoying it immensely. Vince Locke's minimalist drawing style works for this story, although I can see where some readers might find it offputting. A History of Violence is nicely structured; the flashbacks to the past flow seamlessly and are vital to the plot. I enjoy reading original graphic crime novels as well as the adaptations of Richard Stark's Parker that Darwyn Cooke is producing and the graphic crime works of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. It's good to see that Wagner and Locke's A History of Violence has helped spawn a genre.
