I will forever have a soft spot for the wonderfully complex webs of story that Brubaker spins. The storie's classic setting gives it a wonderful noir feeling with some crazy demon/cult Lovecraft type stuff thrown in. A great blend of genera with fantastic story telling.

It's kind of like the tv show, "Supernatural" and classic noir blended together. It's awesome.

This is quite a great series -- very noir but also with some supernatural, cosmic horror thrown into the mix. Artfully complex plot and great art.

An intriguing paranormal horror/mystery about an ageless woman who drives men mad with desire.

Noir meets Lovecraftian horror in this graphic novel. It's a slow burn that takes place in the 50s with a few men infatuated with one bizarre woman who has quite the pull on them. There are some horrific murders as well as some cult behaviour happening too. Honestly I was hoping for a lot more than I got but the last fourth or so of the volume got interesting very quickly. Interesting enough to make me more curious about the next volume then I was at the middle of the volume. The genre mixing is worth at the very least a look though.

An interesting blend of pulp-noir fiction with the Cthulhu mythos. What you might expect of a collaboration between Dashiell Hammett and HP Lovecraft.
The story jumps back and forth through different periods in history and the modern day as the secrets around the femme fatale, Josephine, are slowly unwrapped.
I am looking forward to the fourth volume in the series.

I don't get the comic book code comment this book came out last year

Stylish noir art and elliptical storytelling serve a creepy, somewhat revolting Lovecraftian premise. This is the first story arc of a longer series, so it inspires more questions than it answers.
