Format: Paperback
I've never been a fan of noir (it can be a little too cliche'd) and am not steeped in the history of Luke Cage or the Marvel Universe. So I came into this graphic novel with a clean slate and without expectations.

I greatly enjoyed this graphic novel. The artwork is beautiful and captures beautifully in earthen tones of browns, beiges, and blacks, the world of 1920s Harlem. The refined art is matched by excellent storytelling and writing. The lingo of the era (Harlem - not just "noir") is nicely captured to further enhance the mood and feel. The main character can be introspective without being over the top pretentious like so many noir works. If anything, the Luke Cage of this story is a quiet and simple man and he thinks/acts/feels that way. It's a nice change from noir's prototypical anti hero - the 'down on his luck but intelligent sad sack" who spouts unbelievable dialogue and burps existential thoughts about 'dames' and life.

What I liked most about the story is that the author and artist were restrained in their depiction of late 1920s Harlem. Characters don't hang out at the Cotton Club, for example. They frequent the little local areas they know so well.

In all, I felt this was a wonderful book with artwork and story interesting and nuanced enough to be worth repeat reads.

I really liked this one and it is, in my opinion, the best of the Marvel Noir series titles. Cage lends himself perfectly to the conceit and the story, dialog (mostly) and art (very much) capture both the character of Luke Cage and the ambiance of the Noir film style. I would, in fact, have loved to have seen this one become a regular series for Cage. An excellent match of style and character. Highly recommended.
