Homicide, the graphic novel. Part one

Image of item

Graphic nonfiction ; First edition.

Homicide, the celebrated true crime-book from the creator of HBO's The Wire, is reenvisioned in this first volume of a gritty, cinematic graphic novel duology. In 1988, journalist David Simon was given unprecedented access to the Baltimore Police Department's homicide unit. Over the next twelve months, he shadowed detectives as they took on a slew of killings in a city where killings were common. Only the most heinous cases stood out-chief amongst them, the rape and murder of eleven-year-old Latonya Wallace. By turns a tense police procedrual and an authentic character stdy, Homicide: The Graphic Novel is an unsettling portrait of an American city caught in a spiral of violence.
"This is a graphic adaptation of David Simon's Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets. In an attempt to tell an honest and unvarnished story, we have remained faithful to the original narration and dialogue. At times the words in this book are offensive, but they paint an accurate portrait of life inside Baltimore's homicide unit in the late 1980s." -- from book.
