When this novelization came to me I was excited, and worried. Would this adaptation echo the missteps of the film, or the excellence of the noir comic classic?

Glad to see that Faust and Phillips let the Big A get his badass on. And as with Love , it brings the story from its eighties origins into a more modern one, with cellphones and a fledgling internet.
