Eight Million Ways to Die

1 Mins read

Lawrence Block’s 1982 novel is rendered in a dark and dangerous style by John K Snyder III as he recreates the story in graphic novel form. Central to the piece is Block’s iconic private detective, Matt Scudder, who wrestles with his alcohol addiction while trying to solve the case of Kim Dakkinen, a prostitute he tried to help escape the clutches of the city. Pimps, muggers, hustlers, cops, hookers and a psychopath or two populate this incredibly atmospheric story, with artwork that will make any 80s comics nerd giddy with excitement.
