Warren Ellis and Ben Templesmith are two of the most talented creators working in comics today. Ellis’ resume of outstanding comics is almost too long to mention, including Planetary, Stormwatch, The Authority, Transmetropolitan and several others. Templesmith’s body of work includes 30 Days of Night and Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse, both very highly acclaimed, not to mention popular with readers.
Together, they create almost exactly what you’d expect. It’s dark, it’s funny and it’s just an all-around great read. FELL is this week’s Trade Paperback Spotlight.
FELL VOL. 1 TP: FERAL CITY
Detective Richard Fell is transferred over the bridge from the big city to Snowtown, a feral district whose police investigations department numbers three and a half people (one detective has no legs). Dumped in this collapsing urban trashzone, Richard Fell is starting all over again. In a place where nothing seems to make any sense, Fell clings to the one thing he knows to be true: Everybody’s hiding something. Collects FELL #1-8.
