Overview

One of the most celebrated writers in the history of comics teams up once again with one of the industry's most accomplished artists! Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell once again venture into the world of myth and angels. Constructing and maintaining all of heaven and earth is an immense task, which God has divided up amongst the various ranks and stations of angels. As with any such huge effort, there are bound to be casualties. This unique passion play sheds light on the hands behind creation, as well as one lonely man in Los Angeles who gets to hear the whole story of a most unspeakable crime: a murder in paradise! P. Craig Russell adapts Neil Gaiman's poignant short story with the subtlety and grace which earned him two Eisner Awards for his work on Dark Horse's Ring of the Nibelung series. The reunion of these two legendary comics creators is a guaranteed masterpiece.

Editorial Reviews

Stephen King
(Gaiman is, simply put, a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him in any medium His fecundity, coupled with the overall quality of his work, is both wonderful and a little intimidating.
Peter Straub
Gaiman is on a plane all his own Nobody in his field is better than this, Gaiman is a master, and his vast, roomy stories, filled with every possible shade of feeling, are unlike anyone else's.
Publishers Weekly
Celebrated comics creators Gaiman (Sandman) and Russell (The Ring of the Nibelung) have teamed up to produce a story of deception and vengeance involving the first betrayal, the first heartbreak and the first crime in God's own city of angels. Raguel is a lost angel, a ragged drifter on the streets of Los Angeles, who tells this story to the narrator, a young Brit stranded on his way back to England. In Raguel's former world, the one in which he had wings, he served as the agent of the Lord's vengeance. When an angel was found murdered, Raguel was assigned to find the killer and his motives. Like an unearthly detective, Raguel questioned his fellow angels until he discovered the murderer and then delivered the Lord's terrible punishment. But upon wreaking God's vengeance, Raguel began to realize it was God himself who set up this murder. Using sharp, crystalline drawings of the eternal city and ribbons of color that suggest creation's simultaneous plasticity and solidity, Russell conveys a bright, illuminated world of purity and divine experimentation. His crisp and vividly rendered drawings capture the haunting sense of loss and isolation Gaiman expresses in this mythic tale of love and jealousy. (Oct.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
This is a masterful adaptation by P. Craig Russell of a deep and dark prose short story by Gaiman, known for his wonderful, multiple award-winning Sandman and his recent novel American Gods. The original story can be found in Gaiman's collection Smoke and Mirrors and in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror (St. Martin's, 1993). In it, a stranger bums a cigarette off a young man and, in exchange, tells him an ancient story, which makes up the bulk of the book. In the city of the angels, where the universe is being prepared according to the Lord's specifications, one angel is found dead, and Raguel, the Vengeance of the Lord, is sent by Lucifer, Captain of the Host, to investigate. Russell is known for his many fine adaptations of such works as Michael Moorcock's novel Stormbringer (Dark Horse/ Topps). This showcases his marvelous pacing and exquisite artwork, along with Lovern Kindzierski's beautiful coloring. Mature elements make this for older teens and adults. Highly recommended, especially for the many fans of Sandman who want more of Gaiman's thoughtful fantasies. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Christian Mythology Meets Gay Erotica

    Finding this graphic novel was like finding a rare coin amongst a handful of pennies. I have been a fan of Gaiman's since sophomore year of high school and have happily devoured every book, comic, or short story he has ever written. Nothing he has ever written has failed to delight, amaze, and/or frighten me. This graphic novel, Murder Mysteries, was no exception. I had already read the accompanying short story of the same name in Gaiman's short story collection, Smoke and Mirrors, over a year ago when I found this slim volume. The story is a matter of heavenly justice, universal construction, and angels in love. I found the book tucked between an X-Men trade paperback and an Akira collection, bought it immediately and, once I was home, took up residence on my sofa where I read the book, cover-to-cover. Every image on the page was as perfect and precise as I had imagined, in my mind, when I first read the short story. P.Craig Russell's drawings are beautiful and Gaiman's writing floats seamlessly in and out of them like one of the celestial beings in the story. I was overjoyed at finding this book.
