Murder Mysteries Review – Edmonton Journal

Murder Mysteries was reviewed by Gilbert A. Bouchard as part of a roundup of “…recent crime comic offerings…” in the July 14th Edmonton Journal:

Murder Mysteries by Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell (hardcover, $22.50, Dark Horse Comics) — From the pen of best-selling novelist Neil Gaiman (American Gods) comes this surreal story about the very first murder: the angel Carasel, killed in the days before the fall when our universe was still sitting on an archangel’s drafting board. Based on an original Gaiman short story/radio play, this comic is way less heavy than the previous three books reviewed here, and far more lush (full glorious colour on high-gloss paper). A short, albeit strangely disturbing read with a bracing metaphysical subtext.
