Our own Kent Falkenberg reviewed “Animal Noir” #1, and he had this to say about it:
Near the end of this debut issue, a hippo mafioso asks PI Manny Diamond to take off his hat while they converse and smoke cigars in his office. “Just a little old fashioned, I guess,” he adds. It’s a near-perfect mission statement for the series’ noir aesthetic – near-perfect, only because nothing can summarize things more succinctly than the title itself. This is animal noir. And this is awesome.
What else can I add to that? The series is a ton of fun, and we are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at the issue, which drops on March 29th.
