Reviews

"A stark, arresting graphic novel that weds Simon's account of facts and police personalities (alongside ample use of the quoted dialogue he preserved as well as his own descriptive prose) to visual and storytelling techniques somewhat reminiscent of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Andreyko's Torso: an unflinching depiction of a city at its darkest, conveyed in deep shadows and shades of gray." --Popverse
