The Sheriff of Babylon #1

Well if Warren Ellis blurbed all over the cover, I have to pick it up, right?

This is a story. It's being told how a story should be told. It's using the comic book format in a comic booky way that the bad comic book writers don't understand. They think writing comic books is filling the narrative with narration boxes and letting the artist do whatever the fuck the artist does. This story has no narration boxes. This story lets the pictures tell half of the story. This story is by Tom King.

What I'm trying to say is it's captivating. So far. I mean, it's only getting started! This is like the denouement. Except for the beginning of the story! So maybe the prenouement?

I can't wait to find out who Lon is and why he needs a sheriff to watch over him instead of a babysitter.
