The Mystery Is Why This Makes Some People Uncomfortable

"The Mystery Is Why This Makes Some People Uncomfortable" from Ms. Tree Special #9 (DC, 1992) by Max Allan Collins, Terry Beatty and Gary Kato
The hard-boiled detective with an axe to grind with the mob ended her story at DC in a Quarterly ("Special" on #9 and 10) ten years after crime novelist Max Allan Collins started it at Eclipse Comics, and continued it at Aardvark-Vanaheim and then Renegade, where she enjoyed the longest run. About the splash: Ms. Tree Quarterly wasn't a very splashy series, but I think sometimes it's nice to feature a day-in-the-life image to contrast with all the superhero action pin-ups.

  1. Actually it's quite tastefully done. That is what they are FOR actually.

    The same people went bananas of the first issue of Saga, for the same reason.

  3. I know! Personally I liked the issue where we found out what Marko's horns were used for!
