Murder Is Dead" is an intriguing and beautifully realized blast from the past. Archaia has gone out of its way to create a graphic novel that evokes the look and style of both pulp comics and noir films. This is a first comic book outing for writer (and film maker) Victor Quinaz, and I am hoping that it won't be his last. The talented Brent Schoonover shows his artistic chops in reproducing the many styles of pulp comics- including some that appear to be homages to the old "Dick Tracy" comics.

by Stephen Christy and Paul Morrissey.

Mr. Murder is found dead! Old Gould Kane, long into his retirement as a top cop, looks to be the suspect with a motive so deep and intense even Gould's old partner suspects him. But the truth is Gould's the only cop worth a damn to solve the cryptic case. If anything, Schoonover and Englert should be given top billing as this entire package is delivered as phenomenally as it is because of the art direction.

Murder Is Dead by Quinaz, Victor (Author) Sep-06-11 by Victor Quinaz (Sep 6, 2011). By Quinaz, Victor ( Author) 2011 (Aug 30, 2011). Quinazoline is a heterocyclic compound made up of two fused six-membered simple aromatic rings, a benzene ring and a pyrimidine ring. Its chemical formula is C₈H₆N₂.

Murder Is Dead is a noir murder mystery, but Quinaz and Schoonover do some interesting things with it. They give us a bad guy, Mr. Murder, who is indeed dead at the beginning of the book. Mr. Murder was the nemesis of The Spook, a do-gooder (and cop, although that's a bit fuzzy) whose real name is Gould Kane - you can see where Quinaz got his inspiration.

Foreward by Jeph Loeb There's been a murder... Mr. Murder is found dead! Old Gould Kane, long into his retirement as a top cop, looks to be the #1 suspect with a motive so deep and intense even Gould's old partner suspects him. But the truth is Gould's the only cop worth a damn to solve the cryptic case. The clues could lead Gould to a new and perhaps even greater profession in his twilight... as a very bad man. Mr. Murder is Dead is a "who didn't do it" set in the fading world of Golden Age comic strips. A criminal's lament to all things past, present, and meaningless.

English is not my native language, sorry any mistakes here.

"Mr. Murder is Dead" is an alluring and remarkable Graphic Novel.

The first thing I noticed was the art. It was love at first sight. Brent Schoonover's art is superb. I don't know much about comic books, but I definitely was able to appreciate and recognize the talent to reflect different comic eras in the story. Mark Englert, Deron Bennett and Stacie Ponder made a fantastic job too. I love the look of worn out book.

Victor Quinaz's story is engrossing and thrilling. It's a very mature story. I like the characters, so human, emotional and imperfect. Each one of them has its own unique and peculiar personality. It was very interesting to try to understand the psychological baggage of our hero and how age had affected everyone involved in the story. Quinaz's sense of humor and sarcasm is awesome too.

The whole concept and design of this novel is fascinating. I love all the little details it has, the inside covers, worn out pages, old ads, the combination of visual textures, how the story jumps back and forth between the past and present, and the games. The ads and the games made me laugh a couple of times.

Buy it, it's worth it and you're not going to regret it. It's a striking Graphic Novel that you are going to enjoy from the beginning to the end.

In short, imagine a comic strip, pulp detective akin to Dick Tracy. Now imagine he's pushing 70, depressed, lonely, and usually drunk. You've got a rough image of the book's star, Gould "The Spook" Kane, a world-famous detective who's fallen into obscurity following his retirement, unable to let go of the past. But when his nemesis, the elusive Mr. Murder, shows up dead under mysterious circumstances, Kane stirs from retirement to find out just who killed his arch nemesis.

The book does evoke memories of Archaia's previous noir outing, Tumor, but Mr. Murder Is Dead manages to differentiate itself with an almost twisted black humor and unique, vibrant art style, interjecting old style newspaper strip art with modern age jaunts. Schoonover's art is truly amazing, complemented perfectly by Englert's colors, giving everything a classic feel perfectly suited to the mood and mindset of the story, while Quinaz's writing is dripping with sarcasm, each character given their own unique voice and motivations, creating a unique tale full of twists that will keep readers guessing up until the very last page. The creative team has nailed the decades spanning story in every regard, pulling all three together to tell a fantastic tale.

Archaia, teamed once again with Before The Door (who also did the equally great Lucid) have another clear hit on their hands, and in the wake of that controversial relaunch, wouldn't you rather support an amazing indie book than sink more money into something you're not sure of? Mr. Murder Is Dead, on shelves today, is for mature readers only.

This is a beautifully executed graphic novel, engaging on multiple levels. It makes very good use intergrating comic conventions, motifs and evolution to create something new and fresh while telling a fun and entertaining story. I have read a lot of comics over many years (and the more you know comics the more interesting and enjoyable this book is), so it is a great unexpected pleasure when I come across a new work like this where the ideas are fresh and unpredictable, with clear and effective story telling.

The creators apparently are young talents, relatively unknown and new to the scene, but this work deserves attention, recognition and acclaim, which I hope they will get.

I think you get the idea -- I liked it, and I highly recommend it to all who enjoy intelligent use of the comics art and narrative form.

"Mr. Murder Is Dead" is an intriguing and beautifully realized blast from the past. Archaia has gone out of its way to create a graphic novel that evokes the look and style of both pulp comics and noir films. The landscape format is unique to this book, but it makes the unfolding story more cinematic as it spins out.

Writer Victor Quinaz teamed up with artist Brent Schoonover to create the sadly squalid world of "The Spook", a retired detective who learns that his old nemesis, "Mr. Murder", is dead. The plot unfolds with twists and turns, and flashbacks to earlier years, complete with the authentic art and lettering styles typical of the era depicted. The Spook finds himself teaming up with some of his criminal opponents from his past to solve this mystery, a gang that is as creaky and old (and set in their ways) as he is. There's intrigue, heartbreak and betrayal, beautiful mysterious bombshells, and wicked twists. Throughout it all, the style remains on-target, the story authentic to its genre, and the windup surprising and satisfying.

This is a first comic book outing for writer (and film maker) Victor Quinaz, and I am hoping that it won't be his last. The talented Brent Schoonover shows his artistic chops in reproducing the many styles of pulp comics- including some that appear to be homages to the old "Dick Tracy" comics. This is the second graphic novel produced by actor Zachary Quinto (Sylar in "Heroes", Spock in the rebooted "Star Trek") and his company "Before The Door".
