"Vivid and sensitive." -- Publishers Weekly.
Inspired by Herman Melville's novella, this graphic novel recounts a gifted and na�ve young man's recruitment by the Soviet secret service and his adventures in New York City as a spy. The tale begins in the aftermath of World War II, when a Ukrainian orphan with remarkable psychic powers is selected and trained by the KGB. Two decades later he arrives in the United States to lead a double life. Operating under the name Billy Budd, he conducts espionage while working with a construction crew that builds skyscrapers. Billy's rescue of a co-worker and the resulting friendship lead the agent in the direction of a spiritual existence, a previously unimaginable possibility. But can Billy escape his Soviet masters?
This edition features a new English translation by author Jerome Charyn, who previously collaborated with illustrator Fran�ois Boucq on the acclaimed graphic novel The Magician's Wife. An Introduction by Paul Pope, author and illustrator of Batman: Year 100, provides additional insights into this Cold War thriller.
Suggested for mature readers.
