Talks to The Beat about Storm Dogs - David Hine

"Another interesting twist to this already interestingly twisted story is that the majority of the team are female, giving Hine and Braithwaite the opportunity to write things from a different perspective to the usual noir tone. Rather than the laconic, chain-smoking, alcoholic lone hero, here we have a team of four, and three of them are women – and as you can see from the images scattered here, Braithwaite has really let his imagination run. These aren’t the characters you usually see in this style of story. We’re in this for the long haul. We’ve put so much thought into developing this world that we don’t want to see this end after six issues. We’re really going for a European look to it — the pacing, the visuals, we’ve both been really inspired by French, Belgian comics while creating this book." 4 out of 5
