    Default Snapshot #1

    Couldn't find a thread on this, so here we go! Written by Andy Diggle, in a nutshell the story is about a guy who is employed at a comic store and finds a phone on his way to work. As he looks through the phone he finds photos of a murder, and from here the story takes off. If you liked the movie Running Scared, this will probably be up your alley. Twists and turns, and this is only the first issue!

    Jock is on art here and it is pretty incredible. It's minimalist yet very detailed. The black and white look feels very good and fitting to this story.

    I recommend this and can't wait for the next instalment!

    I'm stoked for this. I pre-ordered it through DCBS but won't get it for a week or two.

    Got it yesterday and fell right in. Between this, Red Team, the upcoming Satellite Sam, Scene Of The Crime's return to print, and of course IDW's ongoing Parker adaps, this feels like a nice time for crime books.

    Picked this up on a whim because I had extra cash due to the Manhattan Projects delay, and damn. I was impressed. Great issue and Jock's art was excellent as always.

    Loved this. Maybe my favorite book this week. Very meaty first issue but it moved along at a very brisk pace. Nicely done.

    Issue 1 was decent. Story isn't too interesting. Great art though. Will continue reading.

    Jock was perfect. I love that this was black and white.

    Are government conspiracies a regular theme in Diggle's comics or it's just Losers?

    Loved this issue. Usually not a fan of black and white, but art fits well with the story. Jock does a great job as always; can't wait for the next issue.
