When Sam wakes up without his memory, in a run-down motel with bandages on his arms, he knows something is not right. When people start trying to kill him, he knows it's even worse than he feared.

It turns out that Sam is in Purgatory, basically, and there's a local gang war about to explode. Sam's skills are in demand by multiple players. If only he could remember where he got them... ? Sebela and Visions have done a great job creating a dark quasi-dream world where there can still be a halfway happy ending for Sam. At least for this volume. No promises for any future volumes, given the heavy noir influence!

I thought that the book was okay. I like the first single issue, and bought this volume to read more. I don't think that I'll continue reading it if it does continue with more volumes, but don't regret buying it. I really like the art, which is very vibrant and painterly. The character designs are interesting, there's a good twist after the first chapter which it plays out well enough.

Format: Paperback
Some Guy appears in a generic city. He can’t remember who he is or anything. Then some guys show up and try to get them to work for him. Some other guys show up and try to get him to work for them. What work? Like guns and junk. He’s a hitman? He works for both but he’s really working for himself. The guys are God and The Devil. He is in Purgatory.

This book is beyond boring. I was thinking of literally anything while reading this and, when I paid attention to it, I immediately forgot what I’d just read. Or maybe that was my brain rejecting it as too crap even to retain vaguely as memory. Good job, brain. Just for that I’ll take it easier on the beer from now on.

Dead Letters is like throwing wet bread at a coconut shy and hoping to somehow win a balloon. That simile doesn’t make sense but neither does Dead Letters. Ok, let’s power through this, guys - stay with me!

Purgatory is entirely constructed out of peoples’ perceptions of it meaning it could look like anything but instead it looks and is just another grimy city, like say New York. Why? People are unimaginative I guess, or maybe the creative team are telling us that they think people as a whole tend to fall back on what they know rather than do anything different?

It’s uninspiring and uninteresting to look at - the artist’s name is Chris Visions which is ironic because he clearly has none. His “vision” of a potentially unique take on the afterlife is to replicate what already exists on Earth. And it looks awful.

It also turns out you can get gored and hurt with guns and celestial knives. Why do they exist in the afterlife? Who knows? Exactly why God and the Devil’s forces are so intent on getting Some Guy to work for them is also a mystery - he’s just Some Guy.
