Book 3 of 4 in the Road to Perdition Series. It was probably inevitable that the Oscar-winning 2002 movie adaptation of Max Allan Collins's graphic novel Road to Perdition should spawn sequels, and Road to Purgatoryis the first of those-a gams-and-gunplay historical thriller that picks up the action a decade after the original tale left off. Michael O'Sullivan J. the boy who had tagged along with his gangster father on a road-trip mission of vengeance against Al Capone's Chicago mob, only to see his dad murdered, is now in his early 20s.

Great art (especially if you like to check out black and white art) and really gripping story that moves along nicely. This edition has the full story line..

Liked the first book a lot, but I think they based this one on the movie too much. Making the story more heroic. It didn't work for me. The angel of death should have stayed true to his calling and not get sidetracked. plus, bringing in an old romance, while he's on a vengence rampage for his murdered wife and son ? It just doesn't make sence. stick with the first book, and leave this one alone. It weakens the story on a whole.

Fun and (almost) true story...whats not to like?!

More adventures of the father and son duo as they make their way across the Midwest. Very much in the vein of the original.

This graphic novel/ trade paperback is a "continuity insert" to the original "Road to Perdition" graphic novel. (It is NOT technically a sequel). It is a series of stories that have been inserted into that period, in the original, when Michael Sullivan is on the run, with his son, robbing banks thru out the midwest to steal Capone/ Looney mob money (to force the mob to turn over to him Conner Looney, the killer of his wife and other son).

Lovers of the original story will love these additional escapades by the father/ son duo. The author fits these stories in seemlessly to the original narrative. The movie is one of my favorite ones that I watch every 4 to 8 months. After repeated viewings one eventually reaches the point where every nuance is gleened. So, it is very satisfying to have this additional work by the original author, to add to an already enjoyable experience.

The story is 300 pages (great-enough to satisfy) divided into 3 sections, or story arcs. The art is great, just like in the original graphic novel, with much attention to authentic period detail. There are art deco antiques and scenes on almost every page. I liked the references to research in obscure period pulps to explain how the story is even being told. More of this type work should be done by the artists, and Vertigo Press, in general.

One caveat is that one MUST be familiar with the original graphic novel, and also, the movie, to understand this story. Note--there are subtle differences between the movie and orignal graphic novel, also, but both are outstanding pieces of work. This story is a continuation of the graphic novel, not the movie.

I just finished the story and feel great about it. I originally was going to give it only 4 stars, as it clearly is not the same scope as the original. But I figured, what the heck, it succeeds at what it is trying to do, so I changed it to 5 stars. It's a great supplement to the original, but only a supplement.
Road to Perdition 2: On the Road is not a sequel, but instead three small books in one that describe additional events from the time Michael Sr. and Michael Jr. were on the road (and on the lam) in Road to Perdition.

I enjoyed this one more than I did the first, though both are very good. In the beginning of this book, the author explains (on top of the fact that he liked the movie's interpretation of Mr. Looney/Rooney better than his, which I agree with) that he had intended to include all of this in one book, but was basically rushed to finish and couldn't include everything. And in this book's style of fuller story-telling, occasional humor, and better drawing to distinguish one character from another, I think it shows that he (and the artists) had more time.

I'm excited to read the rest of this series. The first two were both quick, enjoyable reads, and I just love the fact that one of my favorite movies was based on such a good book series. It isn't often you find both done right.
