Dark Blue -- Warren Ellis, Jacen Burrows

After I read Ocean, I figured I'd try another graphic novel by Warren Ellis, and I picked up Dark Blue. This one's quite a bit different. Ultra-violent, for one thing. And dark. Very dark. The story seems simple: tough cop after drug dealers. And when I say tough, I mean tough. I can't tell too much without giving away the surprise, but let's just say that the search takes the cop to a very strange place, indeed. Much shorter than Ocean, less character-driven, but equally engrossing in its own way.
