Another rave for Geary’s latest The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans, this time from the influential Booklist: “Geary’s archly antiquated drawing style is ideally suited for bringing bygone eras to vivid, convincing life.

“Speaking of great art, you can’t go wrong with Geary — his work displays a humor, style and class that make it instantly recognizable.

“The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans is the latest book in Rick Geary’s “A Treasury of XXth Century Murder” series.  While it’s unquestionably ghastly of me to revel in these histories of murder most foul, I do find them irresistibly inviting and even charming.
