Reviews

"McClintock follows I, Witness (2012) with another highly engaging suspense graphic novel geared toward struggling readers...Hughes imparts lots of information and characterization in his angular grayscale art, which depicts the story from Tru's perspective. The appealing layout and compelling story, as well as the straightforward dialogue, make this very accessible to a wide audience, both reluctant and struggling readers as well as those looking for a pulse-pounding thriller."--Booklist
"McClintock has crafted a solid, appealing mystery, especially for newcomers to the genre...Readers will be caught up in Truman's struggles, the perils he finds himself in, and the awareness he develops of both himself and others. Hughes' black-and-white art builds on and supports the noir elements of McClintock's storytelling with a stark, cinematic quality, leavened with occasional flashes of wit and sly humour. Tru Detective benefits from an of-the-moment quality, not just in its larger strokes--the way characters talk and interact, and plot elements including human trafficking, forced sex work, and illegal immigration--but in its finer details, such as the omnipresence of cellphones and their role in the mystery. Though most of them will never experience the kind of drama the story presents, adolescent readers will feel right at home."--Quill & Quire
