From Enigma, this is one of my favourite sequences in comics. In terms of its use of word and image to deliver its effect, it’s vertiginous.
(No pun intended. You just feel the world fall away here.)
I’m trying to work out a way to describe ENIGMA that doesn’t sound like faint praise. “Greatest Underappreciated Work in its genre” isn’t enough. A personal “Top 5 comics in its genre” is too mealy mouthed.
Of all the work that Vertigo put out in its nineties imperial phase, I think Enigma was the finest.
When Gillen is right, Gillen is right.
I already loved Peter Milligan by the time Enigma came out, but the combination of his words and Duncan Fegredo’s art was one of those moments in this reader’s life where my sense of what the medium could do expanded.

The Main Attraction by phil noto
Noto’s line is SO beautiful that it’s easy to overlook how amazing his work with colour is. Oh wow.
