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.

There’s a preview of the Beasts Of Burden one-shot, Neighborhood Watch over at Dark Horse’s website. It is by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson.
You should go and read it, because it is swell. Even if you don’t usually read comics, but you like beautiful art, or cute things, or dogs or cats, or stupid chickens, you should take a look at this book.
It is lovely, and it will make you smile.
This is a thing that I said. I can vouch for it.
