Overview

An engrossing, illustrated journey into true crime classics of the Victorian era, this omnibus volume contains three works in Rick Geary's increasingly storied treasuries of murder—Jack the Ripper, The Beast of Chicago, and The Fatal Bullet. These carefully researched presentations of true crime stories include a bibliography of research sources, presenting true facts about famous murders in an entertaining fashion.

Reviews

"Geary's very dry wit and expert pacing hit just the right note on this journey into the macabre." -No Flying No Tights 

"I came late to the Victorian Murder party, but I really like Geary's just-the-facts-ma'am approach, and I'd love to read some of his earlier volumes." -Brigid Alverson, Robot 6 

"A must-read for those who love comics and Gothic-tinged history. These pages are an artist's master class. Geary's cinematic style establishes visual rhythms that set the pace for a story that remains vibrant despite the fact that the only voice we read is the narrator's. Beautiful." -Cleveland Plain Dealer

"It is a very eye-catching, old school style of inking that is pleasant to look at and a perfect fit for the time period he's bringing to life and the tone of the stories." —Unshelved
