What I Read This Week
Dead, She Said #3 -- Our undead gumshoe gets a little help from a medical examiner ex-girlfriend, then heads out to figure out what tore apart his mark last issue. Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson's noir horror-detective story wraps up here, in a mostly satisfying manner. We don't learn why Coogan is a walking, talking corpse, and the whole giant ant thing is only kinda-sorta addrssed, but it's a good ending to a good story, with the potential for more to come. Wrightson's art alone is worth the cost of admission, with rain-soaked streets and gruesome gore juxtaposed nicely.
The Pick Of The Pile seems a bit silly this week, yes?
So what did YOU read this week?
