Scumbag for Hire #1 by Keenan Marshall Keller, $6. 32 pages, digest size, black and white.

A truly packed to the gills, honest to god mini comic, by a real unsung hero of cartooning, the great Keenan Keller. Keller is known as a writer, but he's also a great all around cartoonist, steeped in the history of this medium...when he draws his own material, we get a real rich expression...this new series is particularly noteworthy, both genre and commentary on genre but first and foremost: beautiful crunchy and unique cartooning. This is the kind of comic you open up, and if you care about this stuff, the flood of drawings you encounter is truly a thrill.
