Ns aren t uniue enough to be able to differentiate between characters with similar characteristics Isabella and Charlotte are hard to tell apart as are the two bald men in the book The muted dark colors don t help either The black and white mini comic in the back honestly looked betterThere s a cool mini comic in the back that s really great I guess it was originally printed a cool mini comic in the back that s really great I guess it was originally printed size of a business card and it was originally printed size of a business card and out with a magnifying glass Anyway it s engaging and hilariousThis storyline was also used as the basis for the pilot of the Stumptown TV show currently airing on ABC The pilot changes the ending and removes some of the bad guys but the core is still there The Case of the Girl Who Took her Shampoo But Left her MiniGreg Rucka s noir graphic novel series starts with a bang as his female PI Dex Parios is dragged in to a missing person case that as you d expect is than it seems on the surfaceDex is a compelling and complex character with a back story that is skilfully hinted at but never really discussed and a penchant for putting her face in harm s way she s a woman seemingly hell bent on punishing herself for an unnamed sin in her past She s smart but not too een on a wisecrack and than capable of putting her foot in her mouth and pissing people off inadvertently She s definitely wisecrack and than capable of putting her foot in her mouth and pissing people off inadvertently She s definitely of my favourites from the new generation of fictional private detectives dnfthis isn t one where it was bad it just didn t hold my interest even after renewing it at the library i might have to agree with the other reviewers that this is a less funexciting Jessica Jones Greg Rucka crafts a really commendable hard boiled mystery that checks off all of the right boxes It s got twists turns reveals fist fights a missing girl good dialogue and most importantly a memorable protagonist That detective here is Dexedrine Dex Parios a private dick with a gambling problem who agrees to find the missing daughter of the local casino owner in order to get out of mounting craps debt Thus begins The Case of the Girl who Took Her Shampoo But Left Her MiniRucka is well nown for creating memorable female characters and Dex is definitely someone that I would rush out to read about She s smart and tough but she s constantly unlucky and prone to making bad decisions and is always getting.
