The Black Monday Murders, Vol. 2 (The Black Monday Murders, #2) Reviews
Fuck, I barely have any clue what's happening but I love it. Gods, dark economics, vampire murder familiars, the spookiest scenes in any comic I've ever read... yeah, this is my jam.

This is more than just a fascinating story with beautiful art. Everything in the design and execution of this book lends to its ends. The introductions and title pages to the chapters feel epic and overwhelming. It is simultaneously beautiful and gross and grungy and disturbing ...more
