The Cabbie spins off Martin Scorsese's sordid urban-justice drama Taxi Driver with a graphic style that unapologetically appropriates and even refines the brutal slabs of black, squashed perspectives, and grotesque approach to human physiognomy (and its ability to withstand punishment) that define Chester Gould's Dick Tracy.

The Cabbie #2: The Cabbie 2
ISBN: 9781606996522 (80p.) (2013) Format: Hardcover
Picking up where Vol. 1 left off, The Cabbie Vol. 2 begins with our hero, still traumatized by the violent events of the first volume that left many dead and his pregnant sister in a coma, seeking out the psychological help of Dr. Faustus- who submits him to his own controversial "circular dynamization" technique that is supposed to literally spin him back to health. But violence and sexual perversion soon rear their heads, as two business magnates and their sons lock horns in a sordid affair that involves pornography and blackmail (and a search for the Philosopher's Stone).
