— feeling big smile
I love the original story of Fear and Loathing by Hunter S. Thompson. Also loved the film that starred, Johnny Depp. Now I have another story to love!
The illustrations bring to life the one-of-a-kind character, Raoul Duke and his dodgy lawyer, Dr. Gonzo. These two are on a drug-fueled adventure of epic proportions through Las Vegas. Between the drugs and paranoia, you get a mish-mash of things going on, and yet the all make sense and work.
This is definitely one of those stories that you will either love or hate. I guess it depends on if you are a fan of these kind of stories, and I don't mean graphic novels, I mean the content. I like those topics in stories, so it was a great read for me. Highly reminiscent of what I already know to be the story, but with more drugs and misadventures.
If you're a Hunter S. Thompson fan, check it out. I think Troy did a great job of adding to these characters.
