Dark book with really good art!
Vertigo Crime has been an interesting imprint in the noir crime vein. Here, Andersen Gabrych and Brad Rader deliver a somewhat convoluted but intriguing book nonetheless. Taking place in San Francisco in early '50s a private investigator with plenty of secrets has to sort out who is telling the truth and what's right and wrong. The story is full of different degrees of evil and its hard to find someone who isn't morally bankrupt. Its gory and sad and the main character is hard to root for. There are a few too many easy conveniences and coincidences but overall there is something to the plot. The dialogue is pretty spot on for the time frame. The art is really good and would work even better in a full size version of this book. Rader's faces are all distinct and that's not always easy in a black and white book. Overall, this is a very dark book that might be too grim to enjoy but its pretty good.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
