The Expatriate #1
B. Clay Moore, Jason Latour
**** (out of five)
B. Clay Moore and Jason Latour are clearly from the Vertigo Comics generation.
The writer/artist team has clearly been influenced by series such as Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso’s 100 Bullets and Peter Milligan and Javier Pulido’s Human Target in creating their new title, The Expatriate.
That’s not to say that’s a bad thing. This new series has all the great elements of a gritty crime noir series, full of mystery, violence and sex and is extremely enthralling right off the bat.
Moore, who is also currently writing the solid series Battlehymn for Image, continues to impress with another well-constructed and terrifically paced release.
