Sean Phillips just gets better and better. I love the character designs here. Really simple and classic. Pulp history weighs heavily on this comic, and like Hellboy, it manages to recreate that sensibility while giving it a modern twist.

Also, can anyone else do chiseled jaws and bee-stung lips so perfectly?

Brubaker is, of course, great. What struck me with this were the moments of comedy amidst the noir misery. Zack Ovekill punching the wall and saying "ouch". You need that little break from the shadows. Brubaker should definitely give in to the silliness more often.
