Interesting concept, but I found it hard to distinguish between characters making it hard to follow. ( )

This comic book collection consist of a series of inter-connected stories, the first dealing with a 1940s private investigator and a tricky case. The next deals with an extended family, drug dealing and a pair of brothers on either side of the law. It’s also about people displaced through time and the impact that they have on the new lives that they lead.

Unfortunately the lettering was difficult to read in the digital version. The artwork in this version is mainly black and white line drawings, quite well-executed but it is sometimes difficult to distinguish which character is which.

Reasonably enjoyable. I was not over-enthralled by this book but found it moderately interesting.

Oof, skip this one. A multi-generational story with detectives and time travelers. Sounds great right? Unfortunately uses a lot of derogatory terms used in relation to LGBT folks and women, who are also portrayed in wooden, stereotypical ways. Bumped my rating *up* one star because the illustrations are filled with lots of lovely details like grandparents hunching over a cribbage board, and seductive smoke curls, and a VW bus at a vintage movie drive in.
