This is the first graphic novel written and illustrated by V for Vendetta co-creator David Lloyd and presented for the first time in a deluxe version for the iPad. Kickback is a slick, stylish, fast-paced thriller that explores themes of corruption, consciousness, society, and self-respect against a big-city film-noir backdrop.

Joe Canelli is a corrupt cop in a tough city. Haunted by his dreams and confused by his past, when his partner is murdered and his colleagues betray him, how much can he take before he has to change direction?

David Lloyd is one of the comics industry’s foremost talents. He has worked with many top graphic novel writers including Alan Moore, Garth Ennis, and Grant Morrison, and has drawn for Marvel, Dark Horse, and a range of other publishers.

“There are some deliciously Noir moments in Kickback… Iconic.”

The Comics Journal

•American comics magazine

“David Lloyd has style to spare… His art is moody and evocative, composed of shadows as much as shapes, and his ability to frame an image for dramatic effect is second to none.”

The Comics Reporter

"Kickback hearkens back to the serial crime fiction of the '50s and '60s, and all the works since across various media that operate out of that same moral landscape. It's lovely looking, and boasts page design about as complex and intricate as pages get in modern comics in the mainstream tradition." – Tom Spurgeon
