Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Long out of print, this very first volume of Rick Geary's increasingly successful series is now reissued in the same format as all other titles. Three delectable murders, culled from the pages of Victorian papers of the era, are presented in Geary's inimitable style, tongue firmly in cheek!

Review:

"Geary is spot-on in his characterization of the period. Meticulously researched and recounted with delicious black humor." Andrew Smith, Scripps-Howard Papers

Review:

"While the parallel between Lizzie Borden and O.J. Simpson, drawn on the back cover of the book, seems simplistic, it may serve as an appropriate hook for readers unaccustomed to contemplating events outside their own worlds." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

"Lizzie Borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks, when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one!" In this third volume of Geary's Treasury, the famous Lizzie Borden double murder is explored with as much attention to well-researched detail as in his jack the Ripper.

Synopsis:

“Lizzie Borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks, when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one!” The famous Lizzie Borden double murder.

About the Author

Author/Artist Rick Geary is full of facts about strange goings-on, from politics to true crime stories to great disasters like the Molasses Flood in Boston. Yet he's so smiley and happy you would never know he has a penchant for investigating dark stuff like this, which he does meticulously, thereafter creating graphic novels of intense interest and tongue-in-cheek humor.
