Leggi questo articolo in Italiano

The crow by James O’ Barr is an epic novel, moving and cruel. The crow howevere keeps on helping the fulfilment of justice, as in this graphic novel, also by Joe Barr, “The crow: curare”.

Joe Stalk, retired Detroit policeman, is obsessed about an unsolved case, a girl found dead near a wood, raped and beaten up.Because of that case Joe was left by his wife and his two daughters and lost his credibility in his work. The apparition of the girl’s ghost and the crow will be essential to bring him to the truth.

The drawing is quite rough and the figures could be of two colours: the red ones speak about the present time and the blue ones remember the tragic past.An intense story, also for the crime told, a focal point of the whole story, and well told through images.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
