Another Femme Noir Review

Sci Fi Pulse's "This Week In Spandex" column reviews the first issue of Femme Noir: The Dark City Diaries here.
Though a basic introductory issue, Mills and Staton incredibly capture the romanticized settings of the noir genre. Mills' writing also conveys the traditional style of noir dialogue and manages to make it fresh. Yet the most incredible aspect of this story is how it depicts women. While the women are depicted as ‘attractive’ they are not drawn as hypersexual eye candy within the narrative - something that is still rare in comic books. Basically, this is definitely a comic that should be on everyone’s pull list.
More at the link above.

Issue #3 of Femme Noir should be in stores next Wednesday.
