A Publishers Weekly Best Books of 2017

"In The Hunting Accident, light comes from darkness, crime leads to redemption, and killers save lives. It'll probably be a movie or Netflix show in a couple years, but for now, it's a damn great comic book." --GQ

"The subtitle barely captures the scope of this ambitious debut graphic novel, a mix of biography, history, social commentary, literary analysis, and more...Blair's exceptional pen-and-ink work, which mixes the tangible world with the psychological, brings all the strands together seamlessly and powerfully." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A true story epic in scope and arrestingly told." --Booklist, starred review
