I wasn’t expecting one hundred twenty pages when I requested this title for review. I was excited to read this and could hardly contain myself once I had it in my hands. The artwork is very well done, using darker tones to convey this story as a suspense/horror style graphic novel. With a strong female protagonist as the leading detective, it gives the story about a dead scientist a little softer side and compassion, while never losing her rough-around-the-edges appeal that keeps the guys in line.
“Cardiologist? is that how we’re referring to Doctor Horne? How about “keeper of the weird….” Does that work as a medical specialty?”
This graphic novel is about a reclusive scientist who is found dead and headless, except his head is still attached to his corpse, just invisible. However, the real scientist isn’t really dead and people are paying the ultimate sacrifice because of his deception. This is just the first of many more adventures that detective Huffman will uncover on her journey to solve this crime.
