Quite possibly the best comic I've ever read, and massive props to Warren Ellis for writing it.The characters are interesting and varied, the artwork is excellent, the story is both very dark and very funny, and the dialogue is top-notch.

The premise is that the city of Los Angeles serves as a prison-without-walls for exiled members of the international intelligence community.Some of them have been experimented on by their governments, but the end result is almost invariably not enhancement, but damage.They are all damaged, flawed, lonely people trying to find meaning as invisible men and women in an invisible cage: as the main character, Michael Jones himself puts it, they're a bunch of old, caged wolves, all penned up together, and all too often innocents find themselves caught in struggles between them.

Warren Ellis' writing style comes out very strongly here, with his observations on the darker side of the human experience cropping up frequently.His observations on the porn industry are particularly gut-wrenching, gleaned as they were from a female porn-star friend of his who later committed suicide.All in all, there is a very noir sort of feel to the graphic novel:indeed, this story arc is very much a tribute to "The Big Sleep."
