Warren Ellis's Fell
The first issue of Warren Ellis's new Image Comics series, Fell, is now available in full on Newsarama. With art by Ben Templesmith, Fell is an interesting formalist experiment. A genre story about a cop transferred to the not-quite-normal district of Snowtown, each issue of the comic is just 16 pages long (with a price tag of $1.99), a completely self-contained story told primarily in pages of nine-panel grids. Lacking the languid pacing of some of Ellis's other work, these issues make for incredibly dense, bite-sized portions of story. But hey, don't take my word for it. Check it out. It's free!
Fell looks great. I love the look of the art, and the compact story really makes every panel snap. Thanks for posting the link.Post a Comment
