An exploration of the trappings of violence and the failings of memory, Violent Cases marks the beginning of the astonishing and award-winning collaboration between author Neil Gaiman and the artist Dave McKean, offered in its first Dark Horse edition, in softcover format with cover flaps. Set only in the memory of its author, this brillant short story meanders through levels of recollection surrounding a childhood injury. After dislocating his arm, a young boy is taken to see a doctor - an aged osteopath who was once the doctor of legendary gangster Al Capone. Through studied observations and painstaking attempts at truthful recall, the author reconstructs his tattered memories of the events surrounding his meeting with the doctor, and delves into the psychological complexities that emerged from the doctor's bizarre tales of Capone's life of crime. Gorgeously illustrated in mixed media by Dave McKean, Violent Cases is a sensuous and thought-provoking meditation on our memories.

Both Gaiman's precise and nostalgic writing and McKean's lavishly painted art will challenge your ideas of what a comic book is. A narrator remembers his childhood encounters with an old osteopath who claims to have treated Al Capone. Gradually, 1960s England and 1920s Chicago begin to merge into a tale of memory and evil. This is the first published work of the acclaimed writer of The Sandman series; fans of that series should not miss this.
