Haven't seen it, but given Brukaker's impressive track record in crime
comics, it's bound to be worth at least a look. Tell us more about it.
After all this is the man who created (or co-created) such solid hard-
boiled fare as CRIMINAL, SLEEPER and SCENE OF THE CRIME, a really
great four-part P.I. series from Vertigo from way back in 1999. Add to
that his injection of real mean streets soul into his takes on such
pre-existing characters as DAREDEVIL and CATWOMAN (not to mention his
magnificent run on GOTHAM CENTRAL, which imagined the day-to-day of
Gotham City's cops without Batman) and his similarly hard-as-nails
resurrection of long-lost comic book private eyes as Dakota North and
Slam Bradley (yes, THAT Slam Bradley) and anyone who's a fan of hard-
boiled storytelling should be pricking up their ears.
Oh, and he did a great graphic novel adaptation of THE LITTLE SISTER,
in fact, if they want a comic guy to do Marlowe for the movies,
Brubaker would be a much better artistic choice than Frank Miller.
