Saw an advert for this new graphic novel about poker. Cover of the 1st issue (probably NSFW):
[sorry link dead now~tb]
"Final 9 is a comic book series set in the world of high stakes poker. Written by Anish Patel, and illustrated by Calvin Innes.
Final 9 follows the exploits of players involved in a major poker tournament in Las Vegas. The high stakes poker games
are a backdrop for twisting, inter linked stories of the protagonists and their families. Each player has their own issues, their own stories, their own wants, needs, fears and secrets that will unwind as the comics progress. This is more than just a game, this is Poker….
The series will explore the different aspects of the game, and the players involved. From legitimate high stakes games, to online tournaments, to back street big-money games run by gangs of ruthless criminals. Final 9 is an exciting story that twists, turns and continually surprises. You will come to love some players, while others you will grow to hate. They each have their own stories that will be unpicked as the series continues."
Looks pretty cool!
