When Tom King and Mitch Gerads launched Sheriff of Babylon, one of the most striking things about it --- aside from the fact that it's one of the only DC Comics that has to be run by the CIA before publication --- was its use of sound effects. In an interview right here at ComicsAlliance, King mentioned that he lifted the idea from the first issue of Y The Last Manbut still, those three big gunshots that united that first issue's three disparate stories were enough to make a pretty big impression.

So with that in mind, it's nice to see that they're still around as the series heads into its tenth issue.

Well, "nice" might not be the right word, but I suppose it's a good thing to keep in mind if you were waiting for the ongoing story of murder during wartime to reach any kind of happy ending. I'm guessing that won't be the case, but hey, we still have those sound effects to look forward to, right? Check out a preview below!

Deals with the devil rarely go right, but in Baghdad, the wrong deal could get lots of people killed. Just as Sofia gets close to Abu Rahim, the man who killed Chris’ trainee and blew up her car, Chris starts to suspect Bob, the man who led them to Abu Rahim, isn’t exactly trustworthy himself.
