Fell #1

Fell #1 by Warren Ellis and Ben Templesmith is available online for free. Issue one hit in September to a quick sellout, thanks in no small part to the new format championed by Ellis: $1.99 for 16 pages of story.

The solicitation for the issue reads:

Detective Richard Fell is transferred over the bridge from the big city to Snowtown, a feral district whose police roster numbers three-and-a-half people (one detective has no legs). Dumped in this collapsing urban trashzone, Richard Fell is starting all over again. In a place where nothing seems to make any sense, Fell clings to the one thing he knows to be true: Everybody’s hiding something. Even him.

I’m rather fond of Ellis and his writing style. Although I admit I was late getting in on the title. My comic shop had the first three issues for sale and I bought them all on a whim and because I heard that issue #1 sold out of its first printing. Fell is quite amazing. You should really take a look at the free version online. Comics are more than men in tights.
