"The world is dying. Chaos bubbles out of the sewers of an anonymous, desolate city, ravaged by war and plague. There is little humanity to be found in the diseased, deranged mobs that roam the streets. Pulitzer-finalist Adam Rapp's first graphic novel is an unflinching meditation on art and human nature. Perceptive, disturbing, and ultimately heartbreaking, Ball peen hammer offers us an unforgettable tale of brief human connections, violently severed" -- cover flap.

Like its title and cover: odd, downbeat, and disturbing. Also a little stagey. Confined, really -- it doesn't really push its existence beyond its own borders. O'Connor brings some effort to the art, but really, the cover is the best part.
