Synopsis from publisher:

Can you ever truly outrun the past? That’s the question at the heart of PRIDE & JOY, a 104-page VERTIGO trade paperback that collects the classic 4-issue miniseries from writer Garth Ennis (PREACHER, The Punisher) and artist John Higgins (WAR STORY: D-DAY DODGERS).

PRIDE & JOY tells the story of Jimmy Kavanagh, a widower struggling to raise his young daughter and rebellious teenage son. Unfortunately, Jimmy also has a secret past — a past that returns without warning in the form of two frightened ex-cons and one psychotic killer, hungry for revenge. Now the estranged father and son must confront both the horror hunting them and their own failings with each other if any of them is going to survive.


This publication reprints the comic book mini-series Pride & Joy. All material in this publication was written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by John Higgins. The cover was also illustrated by John Higgins.
