This was fantastic. Such a dark story with a likable bad guy. This is the story of how Marv uncovers the mystery of the murder of a hooker with a heart of gold. Oh yea, and her name is Goldie.
Sure it's a cliche, but that is the point. Get over it and enjoy the heightened emotion and a leading man who is unique and interesting. It is a very violent comic, but isn't that what noir fiction is supposed to be like?
The art was striking; black and white with no grey and razor-sharp lines. I don't know how much black ink it took to print but it must have set a record.
Everything about this book is unique and I was sold by the third page.
