I’ve been toying around with the idea of picking this book up forever. Finally after it staring at me on the rack during our entire Free Comic Book Day Podcast I decided I’d give it a good home. I didn’t know too much about it, I knew it was set in the 1950’s; it was black and white and written by Matt Fraction with art by Howard Chaykin. But the reviews, oh the reviews! It all seemed so divisive. Some people really enjoyed it while other people scoffed at the very idea that I even read it, let alone pay money for it. Now granted part of that might be Chaykin’s reputation or the fact that every single cover for the issues contained a woman in black frilly lingerie (more on both these things later). In the name of pulp I gave it the old college try.
