Artist: Luc Jacamon
Translation: Matz and Edward Gauvin
Comics for smart people would probably be a very adequate description of Matz’s The Killer: Modus Vivendi, the story of an assassin trying to get out of the life. I have to admit, I’ve not heard of this one before. Much like The Secret History, The Killer is a stateside translation of a foreign comic. Set in modern day Venezuala, the story is full of intrigue and mystery, and gorgeous, lush backgrounds. Unfortunately, the story does move a little slow at times, and the translation leaves a few scenes feeling like they’re missing something. Regardless, The Killer: Modus Vivendi has all the makings of a fantastic story, and is definitely one to be checked out.
