Britten is a private eye--sorry, "researcher," who is seeped in ennui due to his tendency for telling lovers bad news. Together with his, er, unusual partner, Brulightly, he gets involved in a case wherein a women questions the suicide of her fiancé. This was a very interesting mystery story, with dreary art that fit well with the tale. I do protest that there was not enough information to actually allow a reader to deduce the truth on their own, but it was still a good job and wish there were more comics like this. Worth being depressed over.
