Inspired by his real-life experiences as a CIA operations officer
in Iraq, writer Tom King teams with artist Mitch Gerads--the
creative team behind the critically acclaimed Mister Miracle--to
deliver a wartime crime thriller like no other. The Sheriff of
Babylon: The Deluxe Edition collects all 12 issues of the
groundbreaking Vertigo series. This special hardcover volume also
features a new introduction by King and afterword by Gerads, as
well as a gallery of preliminary artwork from Gerads and cover
artist John Paul Leon. Baghdad, 2003. The reign of Saddam Hussein
is over. The Americans are in command. And no one is in control.
Former cop turned military contractor Christopher Henry knows that
better than anyone. He's in country to train up a new Iraqi police
force, and one of his recruits has just been murdered. With civil
authority in tatters and dead bodies clogging the streets, Chris is
the only person in the Green Zone with any interest in finding out
who killed him--and why. Chris' inquiry brings him first to Sofia,
an American-raised Iraqi who now sits on the governing council, and
then to Nassir, a grizzled veteran of Saddam's police force--and
probably the last real investigator left in Baghdad. United by
death but divided by conflicting loyalties, the three must help
each other navigate the treacherous landscape of post-invasion Iraq
in order to hunt down the killers. But are their efforts really
serving justice--or a much darker agenda? Collects all 12 issues.
