“Fell: Feral City,” Warren Ellis/Ben Templesmith (Image) — Warren Ellis’ brilliant and unsparing look at the moral ghetto of Snowtown, and the detective/crime story, was the best work in mainstream comics in 2007. Every minute you spend with Det. Richard Fell as he wedges himself between pedophiles, muggers, suicide bombers and their victims will leave you cursing the hours wasted on the pale imitations. Ellis’ grasp of the angels and demons in each of us is harrowing and humbling, elevating each episode of “Fell” to unforgettable drama.
