Crooked Little Vein - Warren Ellis Meh. Quite a few funny lines, but it was too much heavy sarcasm. It had a blurb from Joss Whedon on the back, and it struck me in the vein of "Buffy" -- dripping in sarcasm -- but like Buffy's decrepit, disreputable uncle, the one who drinks too much. I liked its nasty edge but was thoroughly uninvested in the story, so--gave it a pass.
