I LOVE IT!! I LOVE IT!! IF YOU HAVEN’T YET READ OR BOUGHT THIS NEW GRAPHIC NOVEL THEN YOU ARE ‘MISSING OUT!!’

I can’t explain it, its one of those novels that hooks you in from the start. The first caption, that piece of brilliantly worked art is like a drug. Once its pumped in, you’re hooked! That is my personal meaning to the addicition that is Comics. The combination of hard hitting, crime busting and the genre of the well known Noir has given artists and writers the oppurtunity to let as knick at their brains in this new collection of stories. Noir is a fantastic, fresh look at our favourite style of story.

I’m not going to tell you guys what’s in the book, you’ll just have to go get it yourself! But I will say this, I read it twice in 1 hour!!!! I never read novels that quick, I’m a slow reader who likes to ‘savour the taste’ as it were. The artwork is sharp and changes throughout the book due to the collection of natural artists, but each story is made perfect for our imaginations. Sharp, shocking and very cunning, a definate must have!! Any comic book collector would need to get this to add their growing collections!

As an ex film student, the genre itself was something I loved deeply and found hard and exciting to write about in essays. Whether or not I decide to go back into studying film production or not won’t stop me from eing inspired by the great writers and artists of our time.

Truly, a master piece! MORE PLEASE!!!!

Blessed Be x
