Murder Leads to Graphic Novels

I was reading a fascinating book called Victorian Murderesses, packed with all sorts of social historical detail, when I checked to see if there were whole books on one of the murderesses.  I discovered a whole graphic novel about her.


I have never been interested in graphic novels, but I thought I'd just take a look.  Looking turned to liking.  In fact, I liked it so much that I began reading other graphic novels by Rick Geary.

The Borden tragedy : a memoir of the infamous double murder at Fall River, Mass., 1892

More Walter Keaneiana

Knowing of my obsession with Walter Keane, Rosemary found me a pack of old big-eye greeting cards.

The image is claimed by the Great Plagiarist himself!  Exciting, no?
