How would you react if you woke up as a half-naked woman in an alley just as two guys are about to assault you? And when you suddenly find yourself beating them down with almost no effort, what then? Well, that’s exactly how Angel Falling starts off. Not knowing who she is or why she’s there, she begins to search for answers alongside a new-found companion who is more than he seems, too.
Calling himself 5, the young man calls her by the name Angel but refuses to speak more on the subject. Or any subject for that matter, he is extremely tight-lipped about everything. What he does show her, however, is that he has perfect reactions and is exceptionally skilled at hand-to-hand combat. We learn that he has eidetic kinesthesia, also known as perfect physical memory. This allows him to mimic and retain every physical action he sees. His statement of “failure means death” is repeated often throughout the comic.
I had the supreme pleasure of sitting down and chatting with Jeffrey Kaufman via Skype. I must say, this man is hilarious. Never in my life have I done an interview with someone who made me laugh for almost an hour and a half. We spoke about Whore, his new graphic novel, as well as a plethora of other things in comic industry. Kaufman was open and honest on every topic, never hesitating to express his true feelings. I appreciated the candor and hope that you enjoy this as much as I did.
Geeks of Doom: How are you doing today?
Jeffrey Kaufman: It’s been that kind of day for me today. I did a radio show earlier today, it’s kind of funny it’s one of those shows where the D.J.s just beat the crap out of you for a half hour. (laughter)
GoD: How was that? Enjoyable?
JK: In a BDSM kind of way, but it was one of those fun times where you just try to just roll with it. What’s always funny about that is that everyone always says the same thing about it “oh, you’re just trying to get attention.” No, I was actually shooting to have half the stores not carry my books,Â that was the goal. It’s amazing, people go “oh you’re just trying to be controversial.” Â Yeah, that’s what I was doing. (sarcasm) But my intention was to, no matter how the book got reviewed, to get my ass kicked by every store owner on the planet, yeah”¦ that was the goal. (laughter)

Don’t be ashamed of your perversions. The title grabbed my attention, too. We’re all nasties here. While I certainly encourage everyone to embrace their affinity for the filth, there’s much more to Whore than its salacious title and eye-catching cover. Are there whores in this book? Yep. Are there any sex scenes? Tons. Is there nudity? Yeah, in an Austin Powers, conveniently-placed-objects-block-the-good-parts kind of way. So, if that’s all you’re looking for, then read no more and buy this comic. Everything else that’s awesome about Whore is just gravy for you.
Jacob Mars was a CIA operative who was good at two things: hooking up with chicks and killing people. Along the way, he amassed a monthly child support payment of $100,000. Luckily for Jacob, the United States government was thrilled to toss $200,000 of taxpayer’s money into his bank account every month for his services. The party ends abruptly for the assassin when, out of nowhere, he is a victim of government downsizing. Jacob must now find a way to pay the bills in the private sector. Luckily for him, he’s a hot commodity in the mercenary market and quickly finds work.
