Description
One of the most poignant retellings of the Iraq War, Tom King's critically acclaimed series SHERIFF OF BABYLON concludes here! Florida cop turned military consultant, Chris Henry came to Iraq in the aftermath of the 2003 American invasion to train a new generation of post-Saddam police. But the murder of one of his recruits has uncovered a vast web of secrets and lies--one that ties the old regime, the new government, the American military, the criminal underworld and the jihadist network together in a nightmarish tangle of death and deception. Fortunately, Chris isn't cutting through the chaos alone. Old-school Baghdad cop Nassir and political power player Sofia each have their own reasons to see the murderer brought to justice. Together, the trio has tracked down the man responsible: the lethal insurgent commander Abu Rahim. As the investigation builds to its explosive climax and their diverging agendas begin to pull them apart, Chris, Nassir and Sofia are about to discover that nothing about the murder, the mastermind or the men behind the scenes is truly as it seems. Written by rising comics star and CIA veteran Tom King (BATMAN) and gorgeously illustrated by Mitch Gerads, THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON VOL. 2: POW. POW. POW. brings one of the decade's most critically acclaimed series to its stunning conclusion. Collects issues #7-12.

display_description "The War on Terror still rages in Baghdad as cop-turned-military consultant Chris Henry must solve a deadly murder. He is forced to align himself with Nassir, the last policeman in Baghdad to try to unravel the bloody mystery. While Henry and Nassir search for answers there are forces in the shadows pulling strings that these men don't even know they're tied to. This mini-series continues with the wonderfully brutal script by Tom King (GRAYSON, THE OMEGA MEN) and devastatingly beautiful art by Mitch Gerads (The Punisher, The Activity), this wartime crime drama takes you deep into the underworld of the city of Baghdad in one of the most tumultuous times in modern history"--
