The TPB wiki last edited by pikahyper on 05/07/14 01:48AM View full history

One of the most celebrated writers in the history of comics teams up once again with one of the industry's most accomplished artists! For the first time in nine years, since the award-winning 50th issue of Sandman, Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell once again venture into the world of myth and angels. Constructing and maintaining all of heaven and earth is an immense task, which God has divided up amongst the various ranks and stations of angels. As with any such huge effort, there are bound to be casualties. This unique passion play sheds light on the hands behind creation, as well as one lonely man in Los Angeles who gets to hear the whole story of a most unspeakable crime: a murder in paradise! P. Craig Russell adapts Neil Gaiman's poignant short story with the subtlety and grace which earned him two Eisner Awards last year for his work on Dark Horse's Ring of the Nibelung series. The reunion of these two legendary comics creators is a guaranteed masterpiece.

"Mystery" is not "Ambiguity" 0

Not Mr. Gaiman's best work, that's for sure, but Murder Mysteries does have some interesting points. His imagining (though this may also be more the brilliance of P. Craig Russell) of the angels' home was a high point, so to speak, and the mysterious nature/history of the narrator of the story-within-the-story was mildly intriguing. Other than that, though, these stories fell somewhat flat. "Mystery" is not "ambiguity." Some stories/authors can generate ambiguity that adds to the overall effect ...
