One genre which always piques our interest is classic noir tales, stories inspired by the great noir detectives of the 30’s and 40’s. As such, we check out My .22 Always works, a Noir story told in honour of Silver-Age legend Wally Wood and created by Russell Hillman, David Baf Gallart and Sergio Calvet, as it is released by its creators to those who helped it reach its Kickstarter target.

Fresh off a place in our Best of 2021, and glowing reviews of the debut issues, we take a look back at these issues and see if they managed to keep the magic!
