Warriors: Jailbreak #1 (Dabel Brothers – Henrickson / Herman / Apon / Feister)
Rough, smart, funny, and action-packed, there’s a reason why The Warriors is still a fan-favorite, 20 years after its controversial debut! Now, Dabel Brothers Publishing presents the eagerly anticipated The Warriors: Jailbreak, a four-issue series that picks up where the movie left off!
In Jailbreak’s first issue, we find out what happened to tough-guy Ajax after his arrest; follow young Rembrandt as he makes his way on New York’s tough streets; and get caught up in the exhilarating action as Swan, The Warriors’ new leader, prepares for his gang’s most dangerous adventure yet. Jailbreak is everything fans love about The Warriors . . . and more!
Great follow-up by Dabel Brothers!
Any fan of the cult classic film, who read it the Dabel Brothers comic adaptation of the Warriors, loved it! Once again, the creative teams over at Dabel Brothers are taking the next step and providing another chapter in the Warriors-verse. Jailbreak follows the main characters picked up right after the movie – the re-shuffling of leadership and positioning within the gang, what are Mercy and Swan up to, what sort of things they are giving up to be a Warrior (major Rembrandt subplot) and or course… Ajax sitting in jail.
The story is exceptional, the art is pretty good… still a couple places where I wouldn’t have minded a few more details. But overall a fantastic book!
