    Quite possibly the best comic I ve ever read, and massive props to Warren Ellis for writing it The characters are interesting and varied, the artwork is excellent, the story is both very dark and very funny, and the dialogue is top notch The premise is that the city of Los Angeles serves as a prison without walls for exiled members of the international intelligence community Some of them have been experimented on by their governments, but the end result is almost invariably not enhancement, Quite possibly the best comic I ve ever read, and massive props to Warren Ellis for writing it The characters are interesting and varied, the artwork is excellent, the story is both very dark and very funny, and the dialogue is top notch The premise is that the city of Los Angeles serves as a prison without walls for exiled members of the international intelligence community Some of them have been experimented on by their governments, but the end result is almost invariably not enhancement, but damage They are all damaged, flawed, lonely people trying to find meaning as invisible men and women in an invisible cage as the main character, Michael Jones himself puts it, they re a bunch of old, caged wolves, all penned up together, and all too often innocents find themselves caught in struggles be...

    This was a really solid Ellis outing It s exactly what his fans demand from him The narrative was unfortunately cut off as Ellis cancelled the series, so a lot of questions are left unanswered We get a solid, serialized comic story but the big questions that wou...
