I liked this series. It's written by Bruce Jones, art by John Watkiss (issued 2006/2007, 13 issues). It's about parallel universes and remote viewing. The first few issues you have no idea what's going on, then everything falls into place in the following issues. Anybody read it and also liked it?
Does anybody know more titles Jones/Watkiss worked on together?

I don't think they had worked together before Deadman, and they haven't worked together since then. If you enjoy Watkiss' work, I would recommend picking up Trigger from Vertigo written by Jason Hall. It's a dark, near future dystopia story where agents named 'Triggers' assassinate various corporations' political enemies. The twist is that the main Trigger doesn't know he's a Trigger, and he keeps 'losing time' out of his regular life. It too got off to a slow start, but was really starting to click by the time it was cancelled. (7 issues, I think... maybe 8?)

I read the tpb collecting the first 5 issues of Deadman. It showd a bit of potential, but not that much for me.
