1950s private investigator in plenty of trouble

Hawaiian Dick Volume 4: Aloha, Hawaiian Dick (Bird of Paradise Mystery: Hawaiian Dick) - B. Clay Moore

 

 

This comic collection deals with a private investigator in Hawaii in 1954 dealing with an investigation into a trumpet player, his brother and local drug dealers. There's bloodshed and death a plenty. There's some extra short stories to pad out the volume.

 

Not having read the first two volumes does not pose a problem with this collection as the characters are explained at the beginning. This volume's plot is generally independent of what has come before although reference is made to previous stories.

 

Cartoony illustrations work quite well here and the story is engaging and entertaining. Quite fun and worth a look.
