    Stumptown is one more solid noir tale from Rucka. I'm not sure it really demands to be read in monthly format, but fans of Rucka or the genre owe it to themselves to check out Stumptown in some format. Read Full Review

    One can't help but like Dex. She's personable, witty and caring. Her relationship with her younger brother is designed to show off her maternal side, her softer side. I also like her toughness, but Rucka is careful not to overplay. She's no mistress of the martial arts. She gets roughed up; she's not the one kicking ass and taking names. Instead, her strength lies with her mind, her perceptions. Dex is smart, observant and good with people. Rucka doesn't opt to transform into some kind of super-woman. Read Full Review
