From the Publisher
Editors Note In this, his first crime graphic novel in 15 years, veteran cartoonist Rich Tommaso brings you a story that's one part crime and one part American History. Set in a small oil town of in the '20s in Big Spring, Texas, this book follows the trials and tribulations of aspiring detective Sam Hill? and family. Loosely based on the works of real-life crime writer Jim Thompson, we begin at his old stomping grounds of West Texas, featuring a cast of characters made up of greedy oil barons, crooked lawmen, city-slick con men, broken-down detectives, drunken reprobates, and obsessive gamblers ? very much in the flavor of Thompson's crime novels. Yet, at the same time, The Cavalier Mr. Thompson is very much Tommaso's own story. The story's plot, the cast of characters, their family histories (heavily based on Tommaso's history with his father), their motivations, likenesses, personalities ? are specifically all of his own creation.
