Baghdad, 2003. The reign of Saddam Hussein is over. The Americans are in command. And no one is in control. Former cop turned military contractor Christopher Henry knows that better than anyone. HeÕs in the country to train up a new Iraqi police force, and one of his recruits has just been murdered. With civil authority in tatters and dead bodies clogging the streets, Chris is the only person in the Green Zone with any interest in finding out who killed him-and why. ChrisÕ inquiry brings him first to Sofia, an American-raised Iraqi who now sits on the governing council, and then to Nassir, a grizzled veteran of SaddamÕs police force-and probably the last real investigator left in Baghdad. United by death but divided by conflicting loyalties, the three must help each other navigate the treacherous landscape of post-invasion Iraq in order to hunt down the killers. But are their efforts really serving justice-or a much darker agenda? Inspired by his real-life experiences as a CIA operations officer in Iraq, writer Tom King (BATMAN) teams with artist Mitch Gerads to deliver a wartime crime thriller like no other in THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON VOL. 1: BANG. BANG. BANG., collecting issues #1-6 of their groundbreaking Vertigo series.

The celebrated series THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON by Tom King continues and follows a Florida cop turned military consultant. Chris came to Iraq in the aftermath of the 2003 American invasion to train a new generation of post-Saddam police. But the murder of one of his recruits has uncovered a vast web of secrets and lies--one that ties the old regime, the new government, the American military, the criminal underworld and the jihadist network together in a nightmarish tangle of death and deception. Fortunately, Chris isn't cutting through the chaos alone. Old-school Baghdad cop Nassir and political power player Sofia each have their own reasons to see the murderer brought to justice. Together, the trio has tracked down the man responsible: the lethal insurgent commander Abu Rahim. Now, as the investigation builds to its explosive climax and their diverging agendas begin to pull them apart, Chris, Nassir and Sofia are about to discover that nothing about the murder, the mastermind or the men behind the scenes is truly as it seems. Written by rising comics star and CIA veteran Tom King (BATMAN) and gorgeously illustrated by Mitch Gerads, THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON VOL. 2: POW. POW. POW. brings one of the decade's most critically acclaimed series to its stunning conclusion. Collects issues #7-12.
