Financial crashes explained – the truth at last?

The Black Monday Murders Volume 1 - Jonathan Hickman

 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This comic book collection deals with various financial crashes (which does not sound very exciting, I'm sure) but we discover that supernatural/alien elements are involved in keeping the wealthiest firms buoyant. The ruling families are often at loggerheads and murder is committed.

As one has come to expect from Jonathan Hickman, the atmosphere is dark, laden with threat and violence. It is thoroughly engaging, if a bit long, and well-illustrated with all sorts of nebulous characters. It is sometimes difficult to remember who is who but, in the end, it doesn't really matter. Reminiscent of much of his other work, it is still interesting and well-written. Another volume will follow.
