Overview

This illustrated mystery will appeal to comic book fans and anyone who appreciates an unconventional whodunit.

Comic book artist Mike Mason arrives at San Diego Comic-Con, seeking sanctuary with other fans and creators—and maybe to reunite with his ex—but when his rival is found murdered, he becomes the prime suspect. To clear his name, Mike will have to navigate every corner of the con, from zombie obstacle courses and cosplay flash mobs to intrusive fans and obsessive collectors, in the process unraveling a dark secret behind one of the industry’s most legendary creators.

Could you please add another star onto your rating system just for this book? For a comic book nerd like me, this book is laugh out loud funny, familiar, and making me a little worried about my favourite comic writers and artists. I can only compare this to TS Eliots’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. Great for most people, but if you’re one of the ones who understands the in jokes, AMAZING. I am in awe of and in love with this book. Six stars
