Since this site’s URL was inspired by noir and pulp it’s only appropriate that I recommend some of the stuff. Right now it’s Ed Brubaker‘s Sleeper. A pulpy pulp comic of noirish beauty (ok well, it’s really more noir). I started the first issue tonight just to see what all the fuss was about and I couldn’t put this down until I had finished the whole first arc. It’s now four in the morning. Mr. Phillips’ art, when not rushed as it clearly is at times, is beautiful, high-contrast…appropriateness.
After reading an interview with Brubaker, turns out he’s coming from great influences like Daniel Clowes and Chris Ware. This is exactly the kind of guy you want writing your comics.
