When assassins use this technology--your killer can be anyone; your barber, your neighbor or your wife. They are the best assassins in the world--but what happens when one of their own turns against them? Who can you trust when your enemy can change his appearance as easy as someone changes a shirt?

Dancer. Even though it feels like a Black Widow clone I liked EDMONDSON Activity so I am willing to give it a try.

Having only read one book by Edmondson and thoroughly not enjoying it, I'm going to assume all those votes are for Nic Klein because Nic Klein is awesome.

Pshaw, those books are all too mainstream for me. Don't you have anything more indie?

Edmondson is really good when he is writing at image. The work he has done for DC has been very poor.

Haven't read it. The name of the one I read was Olympus. Wicked incoherent and boring.

To be honest, I don't think any of those choices are listed under "Independents" on the Midtown site.
