What better way to learn about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln than through the artistic styling of a comic book from a series called A Treasury of Victorian Murder? Author and illustrator Rick Geary begins on March 4th, 1865 (the date of Lincoln?s second inauguration) and doesn?t let up until the President?s body is laid to rest on May 4th. Geary?s dialogue adds flare to the already-inherent drama of the events, his maps of places and buildings are immensely helpful in getting a sense of the action, and the particulars of the time period are rendered with a carefulness that speaks of thorough research and attention to detail. The story unfolds seamlessly as page after page of Geary?s rich black-and-white illustrations (reminiscent of 19th century newspaper engravings) flow by. Plus it?s just fun to see Honest Abe and the villainous Booth done up as cartoons, complete with stovepipe hat and twirling mustache.
