Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Alan Moore, the creator of From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and more comes the story of Timothy Hole, a successful adman who has just been handed the biggest assignment of his life, marketing a major cola in Russia. But his smooth life begins to unravel as he is stalked by a demonic child that makes him question not just who he is, but how he really effects those around him. It is about the little murders that we all have to make each day just to get by. The trace assassinations of tiny things. Really, how much damage can be done by a small killing?

This work is much more than a sophisticated thriller, it is a nonlinear masterpiece, from the writer who has defined adult graphic novels! As an added bonus this graphic novel includes a new commentary article by both Alan Moore and the artist Oscar Zarate.

Review:

"A Small Killing is a very personal, tremendously affecting piece of work, and a keystone in Moore's body of writing." Warren Ellis, creator of Transmetropolitan and Strange Killings
