Major Spoilers Poll of the Week: Water Edition
Water. It covers most of the Earth’s surface. Plants need it to grow. We need it to survive. So how do you consume your water – From the bottle, or directly from the tap?
Murder… Intrigue… Old men doing bad things… Gould Kane is long into his retirement as a top cop. He was once the basis for the world-famous comic strip detective The Spook. But when a not-so-nice man, once nicknamed Mr. Murder, is found dead, the events that unfold could lead Gould to a new and perhaps even greater profession in his twilight…as a very bad man. MR. MURDER IS DEAD lives in several worlds. It’s all at once a throwback to the great staples of noir and pulp, while at the same time examining the real-life ramifications of our characters’ choices.
Mr. Murder is Dead is a “who didn’t do it” set in the fading world of Golden Age comic strips. A criminal’s lament to all things past, present and meaningless. Published in partnership with Zachary Quinto (“Star Trek,” “Heroes”) and Before the Door.
