Dead, She Said #1 ( IDW – Niles / Wrightson)
“Legendary comic book artist Bernie Wrightson inks his own work for the first time in more than two decades! And joining Wrightson on this noir horror tale is the writer who has revitalized both genres in comics, Steve Niles. Detective Coogan knows well that there are some pretty shady freaks out there in the big city… but he doesn’t know that some of those freaks ain’t human. He learns it the hard way, and ends up on the wrong side of a bullet, all in the first issue of this new series that mixes horror and noir into a tightly wound nightmare of twists and turns.”
Nothing starts a story off better than your main character waking up to realize he’s been killed. Huh? Yep, our hero, Detective Coogan, wakes up in big red messes that are his entrails spilling out and goes on the case to find who killed him. This book has just what I’ve been hankering for lately, a good hard boiled detective story with some weird crap to go along with it. This is old school pulp at its best!
