    C 67% Almost Satisfactory NotesOne long, disjointed red band trailer it s a pain to follow, hard boiled but hollow, with not much egg within its shell.

    Surveillance with an Apolitical Bent Advertised as pulpy sci fi noir, The Last Days of American Crime is actually, at its core, a very masculine tough guy on a mission story, with some female eye candy thrown in for good measure Page after page is filled with tough talk, fighting, shooting, explosions, murder, blood, gore, lots of band aids, bandages, etc Competently done, yes, but a littlecontext or depth would not hurt.The story s noir element finds expression in the fact that as our Surveillance with an Apolitical Bent Advertised as pulpy sci fi noir, The Last Days of American Crime is actually, at its core, a very masculine tough guy on a mission story, with some female eye candy thrown in for good measure Page after page is filled with tough talk, fighting, shooting, explosions, murder, blood, gore, lots of band aids, bandages, etc Competently done, yes, but a littlecontext or depth would not hurt.The story s noir element finds expression in the fact that as our hero puts it the world s turnin into a big butthole, and the sci fi element is represented by the U.S government s new found ability to make it physically impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts Sounds interesting enough, but unfortunately all of this remains unexplored and merely serves as an excuse for the protagonist to cut loose, that is, fight, shoot, blow stuff up How does the government define unlawful acts Is it really only interested in fighting terrorism as it claims, or could it possibly have other, less agreeable, hidden motifs Does any of this have anything to do with the aforementioned wretched state of the world The exploration of questions such as these could have turned The Last Days of American Crime into an intriguing and very relevant political thriller, but all we get is stilltough talk and explosions.Writer Rick Remender himself describes the story as hardcore crime with an apolitical bent You have to wonder, though, whether it is really possible to tell an apolitical story on topics such as privacy and surveillance Or on any topic, for that matter After all, the refusal to ask critical questions is hardly apolitical

    Greg Tocchini s art in this book is awful His use of color is so muddy and dark it s hard to differentiate between the characters and the action portrayed in each panel It completely ruined the book.

    Well, I dunno This would appear to be a kind of dystopian sci fi noir series, very, very bloody and violent, with a little femme fatale flesh thrown in here and there like splashes of color in the darkness It s noir, with a focus on the crime rather than the futuristic political situation, which has it that crime will soon become physically impossible thanks to some kind of neuro inhibitor called the American Peace Initiative And as we await the broadcast of this initiative, all we get is Well, I dunno This would appear to be a kind of dystopian sci fi noir series, very, very bloody and violent, with a little femme fatale flesh thrown in here and there like splashes of color in the darkness It s noir, with a focus on the crime rather than the futuristic political situation, which has it that crime will soon become physically impossible thanks to some kind of neuro inhibitor called the American Peace Initiative And as we await the broadcast of this initiative, all we get is crime, crime, all the time, on every page, and I m not sure why But sometimes seedy has its own logic It just is.The anti hero main character, Graham Bricke, is built like a brick on testosterone in the Sin City fashion, but drawn in a sketchier, muddier style by Gregg Tocchini I liked some of the dark sketchiness, initially, when it has a bit of a glossy feel, but later he takes the gloss off and things get muddier and grittier as the action gets faster and wilder This approach sounds like it has potential, I know, but increasingly, one finds it difficult to differentiate the characters Lucky the femme fatale girl has star tattoos, because otherwise she looks like all the other women I lost interest pretty quickly in the plot, such as it is, but this is a common occurrence for me with Remender s work, that I am underwhelmed by the ideas that are underdeveloped I didn t like their Low series, either But if you like dead bodies in your stories, there s dead bodies just everywhere in almost every panel, in the buildings, on the streets It s America out of control, but without any real commentary.Maybe this could have been interesting if it dealt with terrorism or the police state or surveillance in a serious way, but there is no indication of anything like that happening here Sci fi devoid of ideas makes for an empty story Noir devoid of character study is pretty boring But if crime actually becomes impossible, as the premise indicates may happen, this series is dead, because without the blood and sex they got nuttin I dunno, maybe 2.5 stars, somewhere in there between 2 and 3 stars

    A clich crime story sandwiched between muddy artwork and the absurd, convenient premise that crime will become impossible.

    What s this I keep hearing about Remender going soft because he s getting therapy and becoming a cheery fellow Not seeing that here man But I am worried he s losing his writer s edge.Interesting story America is going to prevent all crime, and at the same time convert all cash to digital which makes all crime traceable Tell a tale from a third rate tough guy crook, how he s gonna make good on that last score Uh huh.The dialogue s tight so tight I m having to concentratethan usual What s this I keep hearing about Remender going soft because he s getting therapy and becoming a cheery fellow Not seeing that here man But I am worried he s losing his writer s edge.Interesting story America is going to prevent all crime, and at the same time convert all cash to digital which makes all crime traceable Tell a tale from a third rate tough guy crook, how he s gonna make good on that last score Uh huh.The dialogue s tight so tight I m having to concentratethan usual to fight back against my ADHD to follow who s who Compound that with the beautiful art rich colours and amazing fluid lines but hellacious on the recognition factor, making it all but impossible to know who s who The only reason I keep connecting the action to our presumed protagonist is because the character model has a round cap of white hair that no one else sports Decent little caper story tho Angles being pursued, and not knowing who to trustthe usual stuff Diggle did it better with Ratcatcher, but this wasn t bad Ending seemed a bit dissatisfying Maybe I m just jaded after seeing enough of these stories Maybe I m getting grizzled Maybe I should be sent on Logan s Run Or Logan s Rum Yeah The rum run would be muchfun see how many miles you can do with only bottles of Jamaican to keep you hydrated and fueled Maybe that wouldn t be fun for the runner, but it would be sociopathically hilarious for the spectators Maybe that becomes the plot to a Running Man remake, with some lead actor going all method for us and nearly dying, thus winning the Oscar for their brave stupidity OK, enough schadenfreude fantasies Go read this book if you like colours, grizzled old losers and hot chicks making them feel like they aren t in command of their faculties

    There s a lot of time wasting going on in this even though it was only 3 issues long to begin with and it s not the best work Remender s ever done, but it was a quick, fun read The basic concept is that the American government has come up with a way to prevent crime by projecting a radio signal that suppresses the urge to do things people know are wrong In a few weeks, it will be turned on and, hopefully, life can return to some semblance of normal there s a throwaway comment about several There s a lot of time wasting going on in this even though it was only 3 issues long to begin with and it s not the best work Remender s ever done, but it was a quick, fun read The basic concept is that the American government has come up with a way to prevent crime by projecting a radio signal that suppresses the urge to do things people know are wrong In a few weeks, it will be turned on and, hopefully, life can return to some semblance of normal there s a throwaway comment about several dirty bombs going off in a succession of cities But before that happens, everyone s taking advantage in a last minute blowout of crime and our protagonist has a not very well explained heist in the planning stages, requiring that he get into bed with a couple of lowlifes There s a lot of violence in this as fingers are shot off, people s heads are blown off, etc It isn t always clear who s who or what exactly is going on and the artwork can get downright ugly, as people s faces appear smushed and nose free And the science behind everything is clearly not very well though out if sociopaths and psychopaths can still continue to do whatever the hell they want because they have no sense of right and wrong, then clearly the government and by extension, Remender himself hasn t thought this whole crime prevention radio wave thing through clearly enough At least I didn t have to buy this and I wouldn t recommend you do, either

    Interesting bit of world building America is days from broadcasting a signal that will make it impossible for people to break the law hence the title Remender does engage in a bit of debate about the ethics of law enforcement via mind control it ll save lives and prevent billions of dollars of economic loss to crime, but at what cost to the human spirit Will the choice to do good be at all meaningful any But this is squeezed into the background as an argument on a soap opera and then Interesting bit of world building America is days from broadcasting a signal that will make it impossible for people to break the law hence the title Remender does engage in a bit of debate about the ethics of law enforcement via mind control it ll save lives and prevent billions of dollars of economic loss to crime, but at what cost to the human spirit Will the choice to do good be at all meaningful any But this is squeezed into the background as an argument on a soap opera and then dropped I d dearly love to have had this conflict explored indepth.Anyway, the incipient anti crime signal shapes the world in which Brick, our antihero, is putting together a crew for one last score Riots, apprehension, fear of the unknown, mass emigration, and rampant last chance crime Brick hooks up with an unknown safecracker and his hacker femme fatale girlfriend what game are they running can they be trusted It s a little bit noir, a little bit The Score everyone has secrets, loyalties keep shifting, we don t know who can be trusted, and the whole thing is an exercise to see who comes out on top.I had much the same experience with Greg Tocchini s art that I did with his work on Low It s absolutely gorgeous Wonderful colors, light on detail, highlighted by the large pages and big panels And it s extremely hard to tell the characters apart I think Tocchini knows it too, since he gave his hacker chick character some very helpfully distinctive sexy tattoos Incidentally, it turns out that the signal only works on normal people Sociopaths are unaffected Which puts me in mind of the NRA argument that gun control ensures that only the criminally inclined will be armed I found the parallel interesting Another missed opportunity for exploration
