I finally got a copy of Warren Ellis' Fell #1.
Phenomenal. Absolute genius. And that art by Ben Templesmith complements it so well.
The real reason we should be praising this comic is what Ellis wrote in the back of the book, about the prices of comics and giving the readers more.
One whole story is nice. Admittedly, if the price were any higher, I may have balked at it and put it back and had to pick up a DC Comic because I have been roped into crossover events. (I admit I have an addiction to these crossovers but that is another story.)
Fell grabbed me because the characterization came through so fast. The whole world came through. The quick pacing and the clues never came together until the detective told us at the end.
