I have only good things about this comic. I have liked various stuff mr. Brubaker has written before this. So why I never had picked this one up before is beyond me. But now I did, after all, this was part of "3 for 2" deal in Edinburgh's Waterstone's. And according to the receit I found in the middle of this, this one was the freebie book. Real win.
But what a treasure this was! High in drama, high in emotion, high in action, very high in noirish crime. Really brilliant piece of work.
And the art, oh, the art. Fits like a clove! Dark shadows are really deeply dark, violence is just rightly harsh, but not being ovely graphic.
Very good comic. I must pick up another collection of these.
