I am a HUGE Ed Brubaker fan and count his Sleeper and Criminal comic book series as some of the best fiction I’ve ever read. I’m not necessarily a crime fiction buff, I just find Brubaker to be a very talented writer who can marry great storytelling and characters with compelling scenarios and great action. If you get a chance also check out his re-boot of marvel’s The Immortal Iron Fist – great stuff.
The title character of the series, Eve, is played by Zoe Bell, a New Zealand born stunt woman who starred in Tarantino’s Death Proof, was Lucy Lawless‘ stunt double on Xena and stunt doubled for Uma Thurman‘s in the Kill Bill flicks. Check her out, she does a fine job kicking butt on all fronts. And I have to say it’s nice to see they haven’t tried to make her do an accent. For that alone they get points in my book. She may not be Australian but you wait, in true Aussie fashion we’ll be claiming her as our own in no time at all.
