A comic book series by EdBrubaker and Sean Phillips, set in the {{WildStorm}} universe, combining Noir and {{superhero}}es. Originally introduced as 12-issue mini-series (March, 2003-March, 2004). It spawned the one-shot "Coup D'Etat: Sleeper" (April, 2004) and the sequel "Sleeper: Season 2". The later was another 12-issue series (August, 2004-July, 2005). Sleeper was preceded by a 5 issue miniseries called ''PointBlank'' that effectively acts as a prelude, so tropes present in Point Blank are discussed here.
