This is a two-in-one comic.

Both stories portray graphic violence that would warrant a PG rating if this was a movie.

Second one (it starts on the other end of the book) is titled “Mek” (the first in a series of three).
Mek/ Warren Ellis

“Mek” stands for “Mechanized Culture”.

Mek is a fringe culture, tolerated by the authorities. A woman, who’s an advocate of Mek, goes around trying to uncover the mystery behind her friend’s death. Eventually she finds the killer.

The story starts with hints on what Mek is about. More was revealed, as well as the relationship among the key characters.

Nice.

I liked this one (I’ve not read any work by Warren Ellis that I dislike, so far).
