It's been years since I've been into comics. I reached back to Richard Stark and found all the new comics inspired by early horror, noir, etc. I found Sean Parker and Dave Stewart. I burned through their earlier work. The newest series, Fatale, has me hooked. It probably helps that there's a Cthulu-esque feel about it and it's set in SF.
The Fade Out #4 Sex and violence in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Charlie's flashbacks to the war affect his work, and his secret mission to solve a covered up murder. And remember, like all BRUBAKER/PHILLIPS comics, the back pages of THE FADE OUT are filled with extra art and articles you can only find in the single issues!
11. Criminal V. 4: Bad Night. Written by Ed Brubaker; Art by Sean Phillips. With books like Gotham Central—about detectives working cases on Batman’s turf— Brubaker helped kick off a crime-noir renaissance in comics; his ongoing series Criminal is a pulp-fiction hell-ride. In “Bad Night,“ Jacob Kurtz—cartoonist, insomniac, and ex-counterfeiter—falls for a bad-news dame and gets his hands bloody in a Chinese-mob heist; then things really get nuts.
