Summary
"In an eerie postapocalyptic urban world, humanity is turning on itself. This graphic novel revolves around a trio who were likely downtown hipsters before the crisis began. Welton, a musician, and Aaron, an author, still have the energy to discuss the purpose of art, but find themselves committing unpardonable acts to save themselves. Exley, an actress, unexpectedly ends up caring for Horlick, a young boy who is teetering between playing childish pranks and becoming a menacing criminal like his older brother. All three adults reminisce about previous loves, and one tries to seek out a passionate one-night stand from the past." - product description
Summary
"The world is dying. Chaos bubbles out of the sewers of an anonymous, desolate city, ravaged by war and plague. There is little humanity to be found in the diseased, deranged mobs that roam the streets. Pulitzer-finalist Adam Rapp's first graphic novel is an unflinching meditation on art and human nature. Perceptive, disturbing, and ultimately heartbreaking, Ball peen hammer offers us an unforgettable tale of brief human connections, violently severed" -- cover flap
