Start reading now: Shaman noir

It’s as if someone took a Mike Hammer story and relocated it to 16th-century Siberia: Terry LaBan’s Muktuk Wolfsbreath, Hard Boiled Shaman is the story of a lone shaman-for-hire, written in a style that is strongly reminiscent of hard-boiled detective stories, right down to the beautiful woman appearing out of nowhere to hire him. (“I can take a look. But it’ll cost you a pound of caribou.”)

The webcomic is apparently new, but LaBan has written several Muktuk stories before. The first one appeared in his alt-comic Cud, and it was followed by a three-issue miniseries for Vertigo, illustrated by Steve Parkerhouse. But that was over 10 years ago; it’s 2011 now, and Muktuk has made it to the web. The comic is just 11 pages long at the moment, so it’s a good time to jump on and start reading.
