Throwback Thursday: Ed Brubaker’s Sleeper

Published on April 30th, 2015

This week we look back at Sleeper by Ed Brubaker and art by Sean Phillips, published by DC Comics under their Wildstorm imprint back in 2003.

Holden Carver has been placed in deep cover among the secret rulers of the world (think Illuminati, the Bilderberg Group) and the one man who can pull him out has been shot, barely clinging to life. Can Holden get out? Does he really want to?

Brubaker’s masterpiece of moral disintegration is set in a world of pervasive corruption, where no one is who they claim to be and all sides bleed together, each one indistinguishable from the other.

Darren’s favorite series of all time.
