This is a book I probably would've passed by, but I found a copy at a fraction (12% actually) of the retail price at a clearance sale, and I'm very glad I did. This is an excellent noir story. The main character, known only as John Doe, investigates the deaths of those unidentified bodies (often murders) that are buried in Potter's Field. Waid is a great comic book scripter, though I'm mostly familiar with his super-hero or psuedo-super-hero work. Here he excels in a different genre. The art by Paul Azaceta, whom I'm unfamiliar with, reminds me of Michael Lark's work on Gotham Central, if slightly darker. The hardcover collection from Boom! Studios is nicely packaged and presented.
