I picked this trade up just after it received a 2022 Eisner nomination for “Best Limited Series”. I really appreciated the historical context and references both throughout the story and the added appendix in the back is really something special. I enjoyed the setting, genre, and found the art very complimentary. As far as the crime story, I wasn’t exactly blown away by the first four issue softcover, but I am definitely intrigued with the overall quality of the book to come back for the next one. I’m not particularly adept at the genre, but f you liked “Batman : The Long Halloween” you’d probably enjoy the intrigue and story they set up in the first volume. Evidently, Pichetshote and Tefenkgi stuck the landing because the hype for this book only increased in 2022. It is pretty rare these days for a book to take home both the Eisner Award and the Harvey Award in its main category. 

I would definitely recommend. 9/10

Fantastic Four: Full Circle Review

The Fantastic Four find themselves with no choice but to journey into the Negative Zone, an alien universe composed entirely of anti-matter, risking not just their own lives but the fate of the cosmos! Fantastic Four: Full Circle is the first longform work written and illustrated by acclaimed artist Alex Ross, who revisits a classic Stan Lee–Jack Kirby story from the 1960s and introduces the storyline for a new generation of readers. With bold, vivid colors and his trademark visual storytelling, Ross takes Marvel’s first team of super heroes to places only he can illustrate. The book also features a special poster jacket, with the front flap unfolding to reveal an all-new fully painted origin story of the Fantastic Four.

Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? is an in-depth exploration of the Gein family and what led to the creation of the necrophile who haunted the dreams of 1950s America and inspired such films as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Silence of the Lambs. Painstakingly researched and illustrated, Schechter and Powell’s true crime graphic novel takes the Gein story out of the realms of exploitation and gives the reader a fact-based dramatization of these tragic, psychotic and heartbreaking events. Because, in this case, the truth needs no embellishment to be horrifying.
