Books by Rick Geary
The Lindbergh Child (2008)
3.85 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Why I picked it up: I needed a true crime book for my reading challenge and my friend Snow recommended a series of graphic novels depicting crimes in the 20th century. I had heard of the Lindbergh baby but knew very little of the case, so I picked this one so I could learn somet...
The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans (2010)
3.72 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Rick Geary's art and writing are refreshingly economical. Perhaps partially because there is little information on the axe man of New Orleans, Geary uses very few words, and very carefully composed panels to make up for/infer spookiness from the dearth of text. I also appreciat...
Trotsky: A Graphic Biography (2009)

review 1: Okay. So I had read Geary's The Borden Tragedy and was very impressed. His art was interesting and his viewpoints engaging. Therefore I had high hopes for this book. My hopes may have been too high. This is not to say that this is a bad book, no, indeed for one unfamiliar wi...

review 1: I don't know what it is about this series, but I LOOOOVE them all. I take that back -- maybe I *DO* know what it is. I love true crime. Check. I love well-done, non-fiction graphic novels (cartoons? Not so much.) Check. I like materials that strive to project unbiased, fair cover...
Famous Players (2009)
3.75 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I almost left 3 stars as if it didn't deserve 4 and then I thought about ** CLICHE ALERT ** "how hard it was to put it down" :) and I realized that I really enjoy Geary's Comics/Histories of murder mysteries, and it is not always the stories which are so compelling but often th...
The Adventures of Blanche (2009)
3.54 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Simple and adorable alternative history of the early 1900's set in New York City, Hollywood, and Paris. Blanche is a bright but innocent young musician thrust into various conspiracies and adventures. Each city provides it's own intrigue and adventure which she becomes a witness ...
