Description


Two brothers: one, a man of God; the other, a man of the Mob. In a city on the edge of chaos, they'll do anything to survive.

The story begins in New York City... one hour into the future. Crime runs rampant, rogue cops patrol the rubble-strewn streets, predatory gangs steal anything that isn't nailed down, and the once powerful mafia Dons cower in fear in their tenement prisons. Someone is killing the mob chieftains one by one, and the last survivors call on Alonzo, the Family Man, to hunt down the murderer. But it won't be easy--not when Alonzo's own brother Charles, the gun-toting Monsignor of the corruption-ridden New York City police department, is a prime suspect.

"Jerome Charyn is a master." -Warren Ellis

"To finally have this collection between these two giants available in a single volume is a gift for which we can only hope to be worthy." -Howard Chaykin

"The tension established between Joe's cartooning instincts and the bleak subject matter produces a finished product satisfying to anyone serious about comics art." -Phil Hester
