This comic has a Fell like feel to it. Of course it helps that Ben Templesmith is the artist on both titles, but since Warren Ellis is too busy with other commitments to continue Fell, this series has the promising aspect of filling the void.

The story follows a disgraced ex-cop called Johnny Jackson who is now a private investigator. He gets a call from his old boss. This leads to Jackson getting a chance at redemption – find a missing criminal who escaped custody and get restored to the force. There also seems to be some supernatural elements hinted at. As always Templesmith’s art is amazing. The comic has a dark noirish look to it that works. This is a six issue mini-series so it will be interesting to see where McCool and Templesmith are going with the story. (Shane Hnetka)
