It’s San Diego Comic Con in 2001, and Greg Rucka has all but accused me of buying the ARC of Critical Space that I’m holding via eBay. Off-balance and fighting against my stutter, I manage to explain that I got it from my godmother, who’s an assistant manager at Cody’s Books, and mumble something about admiring his novels and his comics work. Rucka’s anger subsides, and his gracious inscription includes the phrase, “This is a dark ride.”
It’s true. It’s dark as hell. I loved it.
