Mutant cockroaches, cage fighting with sewer rats and Hitler’s shrink — The Exterminators is the hands-down winner for the most wonderfully off-the-wall comic around.
This second volume of the hot new Vertigo series by writer Simon Oliver and artist Tony Moore delivers some heartbreak, high-flying action and more bugs than you could stomp in a year.
As business is starting to inexplicably pick up for Henry James and his pals at Bug-Bee-Gone Co., he finds himself torn between his longtime lover Laura (the corporate climber) and a new flame (who just happens to be working in a literary bordello).
Before James can figure out what to do about his messed up love life, he and his co-workers have to work out how to handle the army of roaches headed for L.A.’s sewage treatment plant.
And more importantly they have to answer the toughest question of all: Who could organize a million cockroaches?
