“No good murder mystery can thrive solely on the strength of its mystery. After all, stories are about the journey more than the destination. With that in mind, She Died in Terrebonne works so well because writer Kevin Church and artist T.J. Kirsch focus so much attention on the main character and setting. This web comic (now collected in graphic novel format) focuses on a Japanese-American private detective named Sam Kimimura. Sam is hired to track down a missing girl, only for the investigation to morph into a murder mystery.
Sam alone is a compelling enough figure to make this comic worth a read. But coupled with the 1970’s setting and the way Kirsch takes full advantage of that setting in his artwork and design, She Died in Terrebonne emerges as a stylish and energetic addition to the genre.”
– She Died In Terrebonne is featured on the same page as Brian Michael Bendis, Alan Moore and Ed Brubaker in this article on 9 Great Murder Mystery Comics at IGN. The follow-up, Hard Drive To Hell will be released very soon, but you can buy the original on Comixology or get a collection in book form from Amazon. (via agreeablecomics)
