Silk #1

Relaunched for the third time in three years, new volume of Silk begins with our heroine the protagonist of a film noir detective story in mid-20th Century Los Angeles looking for a missing kid. It's a stylish way to kick off the new series, which delays what is really happening until the last few pages where we see her psychiatrist and Saya Ishii working together and being responsible for the fake world Cindy is only just beginning to question as the comic comes to a close. Sadly, this means the noir world is likely coming to an end.

While I enjoyed the noir touches, with a random bit of monster fighting thrown in, the twist didn't do all that much for me as I was expected some kind of multiverse angle to explain a different version of Cindy Moon (and one I'd spend more time with). I'm not sure there's enough here to bring me back every month, especially realizing they'll likely just relaunch the comic in another year or so.
