I know the massive delays and imprint shifts of the Winter Men book by Brett Lewis and John Paul Leon are now legendary - but this 6 issue story is easily one of the greatest comics ever. Its a damn shame this book isnt more well known - or known at all for that matter. More people need to check it out!
What the heck is Brett Lewis doing these days or even since Winter Men? My quick search came up empty. That is insane if he has had no follow up comics.
I finally, finally (!) read thru my full set of copies in 2012 after buying them all on day one in 2005 thru 2009 but kept them on the back burner and just flat out forgot about them till I was browsing my collection. The dialogue and pacing are just light years ahead of most of the industry and Leon's artwork is just incredible. Cant say enough about how jam packed each issue is - and with these dense, lengthy issues the pacing is incredibly frantic, this is why its so unique. Deep Cold War conspiracy riddled plot but still time for loads of intimite characterization set on a backdrop of Russian politics and mafias + mix in supernatural supersolider comic book-y stuff. Good lawd this was good.
Any other fans around here?
It seems they did collect the Winter Men but its out of print :(
