Fell is the best comic bargain in the world right now — so why aren’t you reading it?
Let’s do the math: you take one of the best writers of the last decade in Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, The Authority), add in talented artist Ben Templesmith (30 Days Of Night) and give it a cut-rate cover price. What else do you need?
Well what if they came up with a tight new character in Det. Richard Fell and an engrossing world in Snowtown, the depraved and decaying city in which he works? And then they give us gripping stories like issue #5’s interrogation scene that kicks the butt off of any cop drama on TV?
Forget that first sentence, Fell isn’t just the best comic bargain in the world right now — it might just be the best comic.
