Wow, I'm surprised no one has reviewed this book! Originally a six issue mini-series from DC Comics' Vertigo line, this comic has it all: a beautiful strong woman, who also happens to be a Vegas showgirl, a pet ostrich (named Bolero), a gangster with a lava lamp head, strange murders, and much more. Steve Gerber has written one weird story here, as if Las Vegas wasn't already surreal enough. Nevada, the main character, is a pretty unique woman in the world of comics. She's tough, but more in a psychological way than your typical Amazonesque superheroine or babe with big guns. She's sexy, but in a real and naural way. The artwork is good too, supplied by Phil Winslade and Steve Leialoha. This is probably one of the best Vertigo mini-series ever (along with Peter's Milligan's ENIGMA and Paul Pope's HEAVY LIQUID.) If you like Grant Morrison's stuff, you'll probably like this too. Gritty and surreal just the way you like it!
