Pretty interesting read, if crime noir was more of my thing I would probably enjoy this more. The Brubaker Phillips team is a pretty solid one it seems. ( )

More Brubaker / Phillips film noir tribute

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips being us a look at the dark side of Hollywood à la Elmore Leonard. Having recently read Criminal and Fatale Deluxe, these stories get a little samey. However they are entertaining, well-written and well-illustrated.

Our “hero” is a screenwriter with links to blacklisted screenwriters during the McCarthy era. He investigates the death of a starlet who, like many starlets, is exploited sexually and treated as a pin-up. Other unsavoury characters, mainly men, abound. There are no really likeable characters, deliberately so as most of those working in Hollywood at the time were particularly sleazy.

This is only Act One and the collection ends on a bit of a cliffhanger.

Fans of the creative duo will not be disappointed.
