"Sex, drugs, and murder in 1980s Los Angeles... And the best new twist on paperback pulp heroes since The Punisher or Jack Reacher.

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, the modern masters of crime noir, bring us the last thing anyone expected from them - a good guy. In a bold new series of original graphic novels, with three books releasing over the next year, each a full-length story that stands on its own.

"If I could go back in time and like tell 11 year old me that like not only do you get to go to Comic Con but you go every year.  So much so that you get greeted by Stan Lee when you show up.  And 11 year old me would be like - How did we get so fat?" - Kevin Smith

My first thoughts on the first two:

Reckless TPB Vol 1 - Brubaker and Phillips noir TPB in the spirit of Criminal.  Actually, might as well be a Criminal comic as the twists and turns are similar.  Good book and will be a good series as there's another one already out.

Friend of the Devil: A Reckless Book by Brubaker & Phillips TPB - Another Brubaker & Phillips hit.  This is the second book in the Reckless series and I might just like it more than the first.  A drop into the seedy underbelly of 1970s B Movie production which leave you with a bit of the creeps.

Looking forward to the third book coming in October!
