<< Although some very good comics have been mentioned in this thread, no one has brought up Dave Lapham's Stray Bullets. This is an amazing series (although each issue is self-contained) about a bunch of people living on the edge of the criminal underworld. Although they are not averse to criminal undertakings, most of them just aren't very good at it. Lapham's Murder Me Dead series ain't bad, either, very reminiscent of Goodis (with perhaps a little bit of Cain or Thompson). >>

I was mentioning Stray Bullets in a long post and my computer crashed. didn't feel like going thru the exercise again. I'd also recommend BADLANDS by Steven Grant and Vince Giarrano; WHITE OUT by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber; as well as Howard Chaykin's BIG BLACK KISS.
