Anyone read this book? I'm a fan of Rucka, but I mainly just picked it up because i love Portland, Oregon.

Yep, I picked it up (like I tend to do with everything Rucka writes). It was a good read, not great but well worth the cover price. Some nice art from Southworth too.

Can anybody give me an idea of whether this is worth checking out? I enjoyed Queen and Country a lot, have been curious about trying one of the trades.

I picked up the first trade. It was okay. I enjoyed the first two-thirds, but found the wrap up and reveals to a little bit lacking. Great art, though. Curious whether the second collection is a step up.

Some god news from the weekend.

CBR wrote:
In September, Greg Rucka's "Stumptown" ongoing series launches drawn by Justin Greenwood and colored by Ryan Hill.

"We're having fun," Rucka said, explaining the plan was for "Stumptown" to be a series of miniseries with a few months break in between, which didn't work out. "So far we're having a blast. It's allowing for some different tonal stuff. We haven't really seen Dex take something personally and we get to see angry Dex -- not frustrated Dex, not downtrodden Dex. Normally when life slaps her she sits back and grins." He explained that the arc he's writing now would likely feature a gun in her hand by the end of it. "She is a character who does not take up a weapon unless she intends to use it."

Rucka also teased that, "the arc after [the first arc] is still untitled, but you get to meet her family -- people who think naming a kid Dexedrine is a good idea."
