Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

Fell Vol. 1: Feral City - Warren Ellis, Ben Templesmith Really, quite a good graphic novel, and Ben Templesmith, the illustrator (and author in his own right--see Wormwood), is a wizard. His artwork is haunting and beautiful while depicting the very dregs of humanity that title character Richard Fell encounters as he carries out his job as a detective in what the residents refer to as a city gone feral. He's new to Snowtown, the proverbial bad part of town, and he's both amazed a disgusted by the onslaught of murders and degradation that surround him as well as the complete indifference to it he witnesses. But he's a good man at heart, and this is the story of him trying to make a difference. I would certainly recommend it.
