The Black Monday Murders, created by Image comics, is a noir series for mature audiences that enjoy an occult story with murder, conspiracies, blood, and mystery. With realistic drawings and dark scenery, The Black Monday Murders proves to be a page-turner that keeps you at the edge of your seat and wanting more.
I am intrigued by the time-line mapped out and the imagery that goes along with it. You start to notice that as you read you become more and more focused on every detail. The history incorporated in the story is brilliant. The story begins with a description of the 1929 stock market crash and quickly you are exposed to a brotherhood that is the Caina Investment Bank. You are given the breakdown of the infrastructure and descriptions of each held position.
The story continues and you get a sense that there is more happening than what is in front of you. Conspiracies start to form in your mind and the possibilities at this point are exciting enough to continue reading with anticipation.
With a managing partner of an investment bank found dead and a vacant seat in the round table that is Caina, book one ends with more than enough violence and mystery that makes you want to keep on reading.
Make sure to read and follow this awesome series. I promise you it will not disappoint.
