Are you still not reading this? Seriously? Wow.

To bring things up to date: Blue Estate is a Hollywood-set neo-noir comic featuring a cast of characters ranging from the somewhat shady to the outright nasty. Full of betrayal, lust and deception, it is many times more awesome than most things. Read it now or wish you had later.

Anyway, to issue #3…

It’s typical of this series that it can smoothly segue from the opening of this issue that features the most brutally violent scene yet seen in the series to an unironic discussion of David Hasselhoff without missing a beat or even really breaking the tone of the scene. These two seemingly disparate elements sit comfortably beside one another in the world that Kalvachev, Yanev, Osbourne et al have built. It’s a world composed entirely of moral grey area, where even the most vicious criminals give us glimpses into their mundanities of their lives outside of criminality. This seemingly effortless display of character depth combines with an increasingly complex web of interconnecting storylines and some of the finest collaborative artwork around makes Blue Estate one of the best comics on the racks today, not to mention one of the best crime comics ever.

10/10
