I'm In The Funny Pages

Hey, boys and girls, girls who are boys and boys who are girls, guess what?!

...

You're supposed to say, "What?"

That's better.

The very excellent crime / horror comic by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, FATALE, hits the stands with issue number 4 today and besides the fantastic writing and excellent artwork, they've got a special treat at the end for ya.

Me.

Well, not me exactly. A piece by me. About a guy who was an inspiration for Raymond Chandler's detective Philip Marlowe, an ex-LAPD detective turned private eye named Harry Raymond, who was once so feared by the incredibly corrupt mayor of Los Angeles, Frank Shaw that in 1938 the LAPD tried to assassinate him.

For realsies.

See?


You want to read the rest of that bad boy and get a feel for just how corrupt this city used to be (surprisingly, yes, it used to be A LOT worse) you're gonna go have to pick up a copy of the comic yourself.

So get thee to your friendly neighborhood comic store and grab one.

You won't be disappointed.
