Jump on at the beginning with this chunky 'manga-sized' volume collecting two previous TPBs into one! Also included is the 'lost' issue #22, 'Fight Scene,' reprinted for the first time (with a new scene added)! Jaeger is a Finder, which is an aboriginal detective. Jaeger is also a sin-eater, which is a ritual scapegoat. Jaeger returns to an old girlfriend only to find that her husband isn't really out of the picture and now appears to be dangerously crazy... but hasn't done anything to hurt her. Yet. On top of that, the husband isn't just some twerp Jaeger's girlfriend can't get rid of; he's Jaeger's former commanding officer. This complex story of conflicting loyalties sets the stage for the rest of Jaeger's life as told in the ongoing series, Finder. Hardcover, 5 1/2-in. x 9-in., 382 pages, B&W. Cover price $29.95.
