Murder. Not intricately plotted "whodunit." Not fiery, passionate fury. But dirty, sad, disturbing actions from real people. From critically acclaimed writer Ande Parks (Union Station) and Eisner-nominated superstar artist Chris Samnee (Daredevil, The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom) comes this fictionalized tale of Truman Capote's time in Middle America researching In Cold Blood, his revolutionary experiment in the non-fiction "novel." Capote's struggles with the town, the betrayal, and his own troubled past make this book a compelling portait of one of the greatest literary talents of the 20th century.

Interesting graphic novel protrayal of Capote's struggle to write In Cold Blood. The story is told mostly with pictures and minimal text. Very well done. This book would be an excellent introduction to the graphic novel format for anyone who has never read a graphic novel. Pictures and text compliment each other and both are necessary to move the story forward. Wonderful use of the format and an excellent example of a graphic novel to be enjoyed by an adult audience.
Came into this with high expectations, but was sorely disappointed. The quality of the storytelling is rather low, and I found the author's interpretation of Capote lacking in insight.
