The Killer Modus Vivendi 006 CoverThe worst thing about The Killer: Modus Vivendi #6 is that it ends in a cliff hanger leaving us to wait for the next volume.  I want more!  Now!  This final issue of this volume see The Killer getting dragged into a hit as he attempts to avoid being dragged into the growing conflict in the Americas.

In the final chapter of THE KILLER: MODUS VIVENDI, political tensions are on the rise as nations seek to claim the rich oil deposit discovered in Cuban waters. Amid the swelling political climate, the Killer lends Mariano a helping hand, dispatching a group of drug-dealing Hell’s Angels who’ve crossed Mariano and his boss in a nasty way. Despite the distraction, the Killer knows a silent war is beginning between nations. How long will he be able to avoid being drafted into the conflict? Time may be running out faster than the Killer thinks.

It’s so, so, so good.  I want more, and I want more now!  This is a comic book for adults, full of sex, drugs, politics, and all in a very real world.  This is the perfect example of comics for adults and an easy contender for mini-series of the year.

Do yourself a favor this holiday season and treat yourself to these six issues.

Plot: A cliffhanger!!! Damn you Matz!  I wanted some resolution just as everything was shaking down I should of expected more.  This is such a tease because it’s so damn good.  Hopefully I won’t have to wait too long for more.  Rating: 9.75

Art:  Luc Jacamon‘s art is so good, mixing up quiet moments which build up tension and then utter moments of violence.  The art just gets better and better.  Rating: 9.75

Overall: This comic proves that they aren’t for kids anymore.  I said this in the review of the fifth issue but I want this in movie or television form.  Forget Bourne or Bond I want the real Killer.  Overall rating: 9.75
