Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This second volume of Rick Geary's Treasury of Victorian Murder explores the ghastliest and most famous murders of Victorian England. Rick has researched this book extensively and presents, with his own inimitable tongue-in-cheek style, the Jack The Ripper mystery as told through a journal of a fascinated Englishman of the day. Both factual and darkly funny, Geary's personal take on this story shines an ironic light on the repressive society that spawned such a monster.

Review:

"[A] deadpan pulp narrative in the form of a trade comic book in which Geary's haunting drawings unite seamlessly with his moody, well-researched text." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Geary's graphic novel tells of the mystery and investigation of a Victorian murderer, using black and white illustrations and tasteful displays to recount the Ripper modus operandi and legend. Geary's story will satisfy fans of the graphic novel...." Midwest Book Review

Review:

"Expertly designed and drawn." Ellery Queen

Synopsis:

Gearys inimitable tongue-in-cheek take on last century's most infamous serial killer.

Synopsis:

Geary’s inimitable tongue-in-cheek take.

About the Author

Rick Geary was born in 1946 in Kansas City and grew up in Wichita. After getting a degree in art and film, the West beckoned. San Diego became his new home in 1975. Rick established himself through Heavy Metal, Epic, the Copley News Service, and especially National Lampoon where he cartooned the stranger aspects of The Great American Way of life with his inimitable straight-faced sense of the absurd. This has been collected in his book Housebound with Rick Geary. He has also done a lot of whimsical comics for Dark Horse and their magazine Dark Horse Presents. He lived in New York City for 4 years where he provided illustrations for The New York Times but sunny San Diego proved too hard to stay away from. His website can be found at www.rickgeary.com.
