I've been waiting for Greg Ruck's STUMPTOWN (an Oni Press series about a Portland private eye) ever since it was announced over a year ago. Well, it's finally been solicited and Laura Hudson has a fantastic interview with Greg, in which he talks about the book, and his private eye influences. I'd argue that the Magnum, PI "Did You See The Sunrise" bit does hold up, but that's just my opinion. Of course, it helps to see the whole episode to get the maximum effect. But I digress ... my point is that STUMPTOWN looks to be a great private eye comic, written by a talented writer who really knows his private eyes.
