    I loved the story, art, historical news clippings, and the random epistles by the different characters, which added to the story.

    I have been looking forward to reading this book since I first heard about it, and it certainly does not disappoint.Gary Reed remains one of the most intelligent and entertaining writers working in the comics medium today, and when he teams with artist Wayne Reid, the results, like “Zulunation” and “Murder of Scarecrows,” are always top-flight, but this just might be their finest effort. Few comics creators handle historical material as well as Reed and Reid, and here they delve into the Storyville district of New Orleans during the early Jazz era with a tale about a serial killer whose spree threatens to upset the district and its purpose of keeping prostitution localized and under control for the supposed benefit of society.“Storyville” presents a good number of firsts. The recognition that there were criminals such as serial killers was fairly new, as were police methods to apprehend them. Psychology was also in its infancy, transforming what were once brutal practices into more human treatment for the mentally ill. Instead of having time-honored answers and well-worn practices to depend upon, the characters in “Storyville” blaze their own trails, all the while confronting not only their own pains and prejudices but society’s.This is an unflinching story, but also an extremely human one. You would do well to check out “Storyville,” but, be warned, you will want to visit these characters and the district again.
