About the Book:
What happens when a child actor who-self admits to being a terrible person, becomes a psychopath, joins the mafia and becomes a hitman? That’s the basis of this story. Richie Reese had it all as a cereal box celebrity kid, until one day he wanted more, and what he wanted was nothing good.
The cover of this story shows the premise of what the book is primarily about. It is well drawn with the main character standing triumphant over his victims, but also leaves enough with the title to make one curious about the contents of the book.
The interior art itself varies a little between stories, as this particular book is a compilation of the entire series. All of which is very well done as it shows the emotions and situations of each character phenomenally and makes the reader understand and feel like they are part of the story as it progress along.
The story itself is an interesting one. Sometimes when childhood stars grow up they become adult stars, this story takes a different twist and turns the childhood star and makes him a hitman for the mob, and while I didn’t really root for the main character, I was drawn into the story and wanted more. I like good mob movies like anyone else who likes the story telling they offer and this story is no different.
The story is a great twist on the dark side of Hollywood and how someone who can apply themself to easily work into a position that could have great ramifications in the mafia world.
