Greg Rucka is one of the more successful writers in the comics industry when it comes to weaving a good crime yarn. And is a very good crime yarn, with a fully fleshed-out female lead, set in noir atmosphere through the sharpest writing around. It's Rucka's take on Raymond Chandler, a Portland with a heroine, Dex Parios, greatly helped by a very strong artist in Matthew Southworth. In comic book terms, it's Jason Aaron's meets Ed Brubaker's . I thought at first this book is going to be just a 4-issue limited series but I guess it's success made the editor's at Oni Press change their minds. The solicitation for issue #4, released September 1, 2010, mentions of "...the conclusion to the debut Stumptown story arc", of the creative team's first "Stumptown adventure." They may have issue #5 in the works, or perhaps another 4-issue limited series in mind. Highly recommended.
