This book is less than 80 pages which is the cut off line for a book to be entered onto my all time book list. I do not really consider this to be a book at all. This is a only 52 pages, which gets it a written review instead of a video review. This is graphic novel centers on Kelly Green; a widowed police officers wife and her quest to find those responsible for her husbands death.

The writing in here is pretty sub-par but the art is very zeitgeist & good (though oddly obscured tits are weird) and actually the plot itself is sort of hilarious and involves a super-70s queen who owns a gay bar and I'll probably order the rest of these 'cos they're cheap and swanky.

Supported by a gang of reformed criminals, who think they owe it to her dead husband, and Dan's
Meh. Drake and Starr, two big stars of the photo-realist school of newspaper strips, produced a few volumes of this very slightly risqué series about a cop's widow and her hard-boiled(ish) adventures. This volume deals with the death of her husband and her revenge, moderately decently but without anything particularly special about it.

Kelly Green is a go- between who becomes a private eye. Its hard boiled graphic action and excellent
storytelling from an artist I had the pleasure to work with at my short tenure at Valiant Comics.

This reads like a movie on paper, with plenty of rich characterizations and twist and turns.
