I came to The Exterminators through being curious about the covers. They really are hard to ignore. Little boy blissfully about to take a big mouthful of cockroach infested cereal. Pixilated insect karma sutra. They tap into the ingrained human fear of insects and `dirty' pests and remind us what creeps into our food and our beds every night, no matter how hard we try to keep them out. Vertigo have always put out great books, but instead of a story starring gods, mythic creatures, ex-green berets or cocky criminals, there's something very down to earth (way way down) about a series like Simon Oliver's "Exterminators".

This is the third volume in the series, and really one of the best ongoing series on offer from Vertigo (following closely behind DMZ and Fables, placing it in good company). The Exterminators story has really begun to branch out and spread itself around in complicated side-stories as the writer and his creative team settle in with the knowledge that they're not going to be cancelled any time soon, but saving us the cokcy complacency of so many `star' creators of the more adult comic genre.

The series has primarily followed the likeable and unassuming Henry, an ex-con whose attempts at starting a normal life and job have been far from normal, and in no small part thanks his new work with his father's business, Bug-bee-gone. There's an escalating pest problem in New York city, seemingly connected to Henry's long-term partner's employer OCCRAM and their DRAXX drug (a three-in-one pest control gel, street narcotic, and cockroach steroid depending on the dosage). Then again, there's the mystery of the mystery ancient egyptian locked box, which Henry found in the car of his spectacularly overdosed work-mate in the first volume of the series.

It hasn't arrived at my house yet, but it's supposed to be here today. I know I can count on it being here today as a matter of fact because Amazon guaranteed if I ordered in the proper time frame that it would be. It damn well better be. I want to be the first to see whatever it is that is blurred out on the cover. I liked parts 1 and 2 very much. It kind of reminds me of Lost except I don't want to nail everybody I see.
