PREVIEW- "Angeltown" by Gary Phillips & Shawn Martinbrough

 I'm a big fan of noir connoisseur Shawn Martinbrough (Luke Cage: Noir, Bullseye: Perfect Game, Batman: Evolution), so I was happy to find these preview pages from the new trade paperback Angeltown: The Nate Hollis Investigations which reprints the Vertigo series he worked on with writer Gary Phillips (High Rollers) in 2005.

Gary Phillips has an impressive catalog of prose novels to his credit including Violent Spring (first in his Ivan Monk Mystery series) and The Jook (Switchblade). "Gary Phillips is my kind of crime writer." says fellow author Sara Paretsky (V. I. Warshawski novels)...  Phillips is returning to comics for DC's Vertigo Crime imprint with the upcoming urban crime OGN Cowboys [READ THIS INTERVIEW on CBR] and as I said, Shawn Martinbrough is a beast. He's got this noir thing locked up. I'm definitely checking for this...
Anyways, for those who missed Angeltown in comics form, this collection drops in June, and Cowboys drops July 13th. More news about that when I get it!
