“Back to Brooklyn” is a mob style crime drama featuring the talents of  Garth Ennis and Jimmy Palmiotti. This is a much better effort than their previous project “the Pro”.  Although the story is based on a pretty familiar theme of a family member turning evidence against the mob,  the execution is inventively  crafted  and it keeps you on the edge of your seat right up to the very end.  The book is very violent but in a realistic way (not like the Punisher) which makes it all the more shocking .  The artwork is soft focussed with an almost sepia tone palette and I found it to be a bit drab. This TPB has plenty of shock value and reads like watching a good R rated movie.  Jimmy Palmiotti’s background articles are also a nice touch and well worth a read.    [ISBN-13: 978-1607060604]. 8/10
