Check out these videos of our interviews with some of crime-fiction’s greats, like Duane Swierczynski, Ruth Rendell, Megan Abbott, Joyce Carol Oates, Michael Connelly, and Nelson DeMille.
Me, reviewing a comic on this blog? Yep! Why? Well writer Duane has been writing some awesome crime fiction and I am a fan of Alex Segura’s work who is the brain behind the whole Dark Circle line this comic is a part of, so why not. And this Black Hood guy is one hardboiled guy…
Philly cop Greg Hettinger is shot in the face as he takes down a vigilante killer. That makes him a hero, but also a scarred and disfigured man who plunges deeper and deeper into depression. In the end he pulls on the hood of The Black Hood which ends this origin issue.
The story of Hettinger is told at a brisk space and could have been a novel by Duane by itself. The dark, gritty art perfectly enhances the story and has me wanting more.
City Paper: Hey Duane, how do you pronounce your last name?
Duane Swierczynski: Carefully.
