PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Warren Ellis launches his new creator-owned line of books right here with the first four books from Apparat! The four Apparat books are inspired by the pulp magazines of the 1930's and imagine modern day comic books that evolved from the pulps without the influence of super-heroes. Each issue features a full-length story with loads of extra text material by Ellis. Frank Ironwine is illustrated by Carla Speed McNeil (Finder). Ellis describes the creation of Frank Ironwine, "The crime pulps were possibly the most influential of that whole publishing movement. Raymond Chandler. Dashiell Hammett. People who changed the face of literature published in the crime pulps. As pulps faded away, the crime writers moved to books rather than comics, and on from there to Hollywood. Crime is the map we build our houses around. Everything's based on crime. This is how Frank Ironwine sees the world. New York's built on the bones of the people who were murdered to make it happen. There are no new crimes in New York City, not really. They've all happened before, and understanding their patterns is a step towards understanding the city. But no crime is ordinary."
