As a young girl growing I always looked forward to Saturdays. We would spend the day in town with my grandmother. She would give me a little money and I would head up the block to the drug store to buy a comic book. I usually went for Archie or something similar but I remember the superhero comics. Gingerly I would pick one up and thumb through it. The scenes were usually dark depicting a battle between good and evil.
None of the comic books of the past can come close to the Graphic Novels produced today. Cell Block Z is a work of art. It tells the story of Cole Dennis, a heavyweight boxer. The city looks to him as a hero. After being arrested for murder he is sent to a high-tech prison. The inmates are used like guinea pigs for bioweapons. Dennis is out yet. He is reborn as Ghostface Killah and he is filled with righteous anger.
I do not recommend this book for young adults.
