"""No season would be complete without the latest in Rick Geary's ongoing series of 20th-century murders: with elegant, unsettling penwork, "Madison Square Tragedy: The Murder of Stanford White" tells the notorious story of architect Stanford White, who was murdered by a jealous husband in a theater atop the original Madison Square Garden. Expect his usual tongue-in-cheek tone." --"Publishers Weekly" "To be able to share "Madison Square Tragedy", a shining example of the possibilities of the comic medium--with those who would not necessarily approach a comic book--is a triumph." --Jenny Randle, "New York Journal of Books" "Geary's old-fashioned black-and-white line drawings, vividly evoking the turn-of-the-century milieu, and his reliance on text-heavy captions as a sort of voiceover impart a documentary air to his thoroughly researched account. A standout entry in Geary's consistently fascinating true-crime series." --Gordon Flagg, "Booklist" "A steady and enthralling account of White's murder which also provides an impressive narrative of Nesbit's ability to survive in a world of men trying to control her and bend her to their wills." --"Publishers Weekly" "His clean, purely linear artwork is not only a delight to look at but serves the narrative in a near perfect union of pictures and words." --"Publishers Weekly" on "Lovers Lane" "He uses his detached style to get at something essential in the story he's telling, contrasting his placid portraiture with the roiling passions just under the surface." --"Onion AV Club" on "Lovers Lane"
