Once, Michael O'Sullivan was the "Angel of Death", the Irish mob's most feared enforcer. Once, his son was an innocent youth. Now, neither is was what it once was. Tragedy has brought them together on a mission of vengeance. A mission that takes them through America's heartland to rob banks of funds hidden there for safe keeping by Chicago Gangland...

Oasis is the first in a three part collection that charts the six month period in the O'Sullivans' lives spent robbing banks across America's heartland - events that were only touched on in the movie.

Master storyteller Max Allan Collins pulls out all the stops to fill in events left untold. And if the remaining two releases are as good as Oasis, then Titan can look forward to these graphic novels flying off the shelves.

Jose Luis Carcia-Lopez and Josef Rubinstein's wonderfully detailed artwork sets just the right atmosphere and is almost cinematic in its staging.

Personally I would have preferred to have seen a collection of all three stories under one cover. The 94 pages presented in this collection looks much smaller due to the fact the publishers have opted for an A5 format for release. This, coupled with the quality of paper used, detracts painfully from what could have been a 10/10 release.

Worth getting your hands on though.
