The New West

by Jimmy Palmiotti and Phil Noto. Came out last week. It's pretty cool. The concept is fucking top notch (an EMP was detonated that blacked out all of LA, and it's a year later) mixed with some decent noiry private eye things, and you have a great comic. And Phil Noto is like a god as far as his art goes. I don't know him, so I can't vouch for any other godlike features.

Highly recommended.
