Eight Million Ways to Die—CERTIFIED COOL

John K. Snyder III (w & a & c)

In crime-ravaged 1980s New York, a troubled ex-cop turned unlicensed detective takes on his most dangerous case, hunting down a serial killer-hitman, and ultimately coming face-to-face with his deadliest enemy, himself, in John K. Snyder III’s graphic novel adaptation of the celebrated story by Lawrence Block.

Steeped in traditional pulp, Block’s writing has a true gift for capturing the art of conversation between his characters. These are the lowlifes of society, for whom Block occasionally finds redemption, but who are more often among the vilest beings in human existence. Snyder’s art both encapsulates and elevates these rough-cut gems in a graphic, grainy, and moody setting that evokes the dark, noir magazine covers of the period.

Chester Gould’s morality play enters the late ’60s, as the cartoonist tackles concepts of retribution, constitutional rights, economic warfare, and Space-Age intrigue—all amidst the usual array of murder and violence. The stakes, however, seem higher, and the body count soars: death in space, on the high seas, behind closed doors—by gun, by laser, by asphyxiation, by explosion, and by freezing. Plus, a special feature about the aborted 1967 Dick Tracy TV show from the same producer who made Batman a pop culture icon. Included are all strips from July 3, 1967 to April 2, 1969.

This second and concluding volume in the series presents “Nicaragua,” “Private Stories,” “The USA Affair,” and “The End of the Road.”

Jekyll Island Chronicles (Book Two): A Devil’s Reach

Steve Nedvidek & Ed Crowell & Jack Lowe (w) • Moses Nester (a) • S.J. Miller (c)

At the beginning of the twentieth century, one sixth of the world’s wealth vacationed in and around the tiny Georgia island of Jekyll. Captains of industry like Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, and Carnegie all called the Jekyll area home. Blending elements of historical fact, clockwork technology, and Diesel-punk style, The Jekyll Island Chronicles spans an age of furious mechanical advancement while exploring the span of man’s soul—whether good or evil.

In Book Two of this alt-history adventure, Peter, Helen, and the rest of Carnegie’s “Specials” would like nothing more than to return to normalcy along with the rest of the country—especially after defeating their enemies in Book One. But the anarchists have other plans. Luigi Galleani and the Zeno cabal reach out across Europe and across the Atlantic to wreak havoc, divide the enemy, build an army, and capture plans for the world’s deadliest weapon. If they are to be stopped, the tiny group of heroes from Jekyll will need to find new resolve, new resources, and new allies—and do it all before Nikola Tesla’s most terrible creation is unleashed.
