21 x 21 cm
A collection of long out of print stories from the late '80s to the early 90s'. Maniac killer is full of deformed monsters and secret societies, of a mirderous clan of cat-masked villians and simple mad scientists. In the multi-chapter " Thirteen O'Clock" a serial killer bearing a corkscrew strikes repeatedly while a glowing, disembodied skull talks to the victims. But the enigmatic detective Mr.Murmur solves the crime and shares the motive, too riduculous to be explained here. It combines noir mystery with absurd humor. The native artwork is reminiscent of Lynda Berry and its simplicity helps to convey the tone of spooky delight.
Richard Sala grew up with a fascination for musty old museums, dusty old libraries, cluttered antique shops, narrow alleyways, hidden truths, double meanings, sinister secrets and spooky old houses. He has written and drawn a number of unusual graphic novels which often combine elements of classic mystery and horror stories and which have been known to cause readers to emit chuckles as well as gasps. Although most of his books are written with teens and older readers in mind, his book, CAT BURGLAR BLACK, can be enjoyed by younger readers as well. He has also collaborated with Lemony Snicket and Art Spiegelman, and his illustrations and artwork have won awards and been published all over the world.
