    1. So, this is The Classified Edition of Incognito that includes both volumes.Huh.I have to admit, I was a tad annoyed at the ending when I found out that this was it. Hello? What the hell was that?!So, this thing doesn't exactly have a tidy ending.I don't consider that a spoiler. More of a WARNING for others, like myself, who have certain expectations when it comes to reading books.And if you're like me, then this 'ending' will bother you a great deal!I know a lot of you lovely folks out there lik [...]


    2. Ermpervillain in witness protection as a file clerk? Yes please! Brubaker's crime stories merge with that whole superhero mythology stuff to create a fascinatingly complex and conflicted noir protagonist and place him in a world of people who are out to use him, abuse him and discard him or just straight up kill him for one of many perfectly valid reasons - he was a self serving murderer afterall. The twisted tale he weaves is brilliantly complex and loaded with the kind of nihilistic inevitabil [...]


    3. In 2008 and 2010, comic book creators Ed Brubaker (writer) and Sean Phillips (artist) came out with a new, pulp-inspired comic book, Incognito, published as a pair of mini-series.The main character of Incognito is Zach Overkill. He and his twin brother, both superstrong and supertough, had been soldiers in Black Death’s organization until someone tried to bump them off. Zach’s brother, Xander, was killed. Zach survived and turned state’s evidence against Black Death, as it seemed it was hi [...]


    4. It's interesting to see and read the earlier works by this pair. You can see bits and pieces of what is to come. This Classified Edition actually has two stories, the first being the "origin" of Zack, although not exactly his origin, just an introduction to the reader. Brubaker creates a new world with some history and a structure of good and evil. Sure it's borrowed heavily from the Marvel universe and with only a few pages per volume, he doesn't spend too much time filling in the details, howe [...]


    5. Not as good as I remember it to be. It reads like The Sleeper: Omnibus lite. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. After all Sleeper is one of the best example of Noir I have ever read. On the other hand Incognito feels like rushed in places, especially the second part of this two-parter. This seems to be an early collaboration between Brubaker and Philips and it has all the characteristics of its better known siblings, but somehow they do not gel together to give us a thrilling ride. It did not [...]


    6. My first stand alone Brubaker story and a bit of let down. I'm sure his other work is outstanding (Criminal, Sleeper, etc) but this just felt like it was unfinished. I hated the ending. That said I was engrossed for the most part and this had the makings of being something bigger. Art was great.ty, darkry noir and perfect for the narrative. I still have plenty to read change my perception of the Brubaker/Phillips pairing with Velvet on my read list soon.


    7. Incognito: The Classified Edition by Ed Brubaker is a graphic novel that collects Incognito 1-6 and Bad Influences 1-5. Brubaker is the creator and author of such notable comics as Criminal and Fatale of which I am a huge fan. So eventually I would find a work by Brubaker that I did not in love with and this is it.What happens to super villains when they get captured? They get sent into super villain witness protection program where they are drugged enough to keep their powers in check. Zack Ove [...]


    8. This made me happy. It's the best non-Marvel work I've read by Brubaker.* I was thinking this took place in the Marvel universe but it does not. I think it's one Brubaker built just for this story. A future (or the past a decade or so ago) where super-villains and heroes fight each other mostly behind the scenes and our hero/villain languishes in witness protection wondering whether his life still has any meaning. Naturally events don't let him just stay static and both heroes and villains wonde [...]


    9. Ever since I began reading the series Fatale I've become a big fan of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. I really enjoy the type of stories they tell with their work. They bring a pulp style to the medium which really grabs my attention and keeps me interested. The artwork is of course a big plus because I think it fits the story perfectly. Beware Zack Overkill!!



    10. Brubaker never ceases to impress. I love his work, as I'm mildly obsessed with noir and such tales. So to see this dark take that blends superheroes and villains, with a classic noir aesthetic? What's not to love.Really, these are two very dark tales that might be a bit much for some, but dark humor and less-than-sunny dispositions are some of my favorite things in stories: This one is packed with both.Basically, it reminded me of the flipside of THE INCREDIBLES. Rather than being a former super [...]

    12. What a trip. I started this not knowing quite what to expect, and then instantly being slammed by hatred of this self-absorbed douchebag who thinks he's the only in this world who's got it figured out; who knows "the Secret." I guess I've just read too much stuff recently where the main male character never changes. Too much wish-fantasy going on, you know? So I had to set this down for a week and seethe.But then I went back and sat down to read it. And holy crap, I am so glad I did. *This* is w [...]


    13. First, let me start with the fact that I bought this book thinking it was about the Marvel character The Hood. It wasn't. This is a stand-alone story that takes place in its own universe. I was rather irritated about the mix-up but gave it a chance. I'm glad I did. This story is about an ex-super-villain who is languishing without his powers in the witness protection program. He gets his powers back and slowly finds himself again. Is he a hero or a villain? Are the "good guys" really "good"? Aft [...]


    14. Super-criminals don't retire easily -- but trying to change is even harder. With a story that eschews the classic redemption arc for something more true to its troublemaking protagonist, Incognito succeeds in creating an antihero who can't mend his ways, who doesn't learn to respect and protect humanity, but who fights crime because fighting is what he's good at -- even if absolutely no one wants him to do it. This makes the collection a great antidote to more moralistic super-tales while never [...]


    15. What happens when you place a super villain under witness protection?You get a pretty interesting story.Fairly well executed, with a supporting cast of interesting people with various powers, Incognito was better than I expected it to be. Although, I was left dissatisfied by the end. Perhaps it was this edition. Maybe there's more to the story than just what's collected here, in which case, I hope it explains things a bit more. But it's a fascinating story about a super villain who comes to reev [...]


    16. Ed Brubaker is a wonderful storyteller with a deft hand at creating intrigue, even in a superhero book. Incognito has all the Brubaker elements of mystery, pulpy noir that masterfully unfolds in an engaging manner that'll keep the page turning. Highly recommended.


    17. Ed Brubaker at his best. Modern noir with a superhero twist that invigorates both genres. Plus the design work on this particular volume is gorgeous. One of the prettiest books in my collection.
