RED HANDED: THE FINE ART OF STRANGE CRIMES HC(W/A) Matt Kindt
Welcome to the city of Red Wheelbarrow, where the world's greatest detective has yet to meet the crime he can't solve - every criminal in Red Wheelbarrow is caught and convicted thanks to Detective Gould's brilliant mind and cutting-edge spy technology. But lately there has been a rash of crimes so eccentric and random that even Detective Gould is stumped. Will he discover the connection between the compulsive chair thief, the novelist who uses purloined street signs to write her magnum opus, and the photographer who secretly documents peoples' most anguished personal moments? Or has Detective Gould finally meet his match?
From the psychic overlord behind Mind MGMT comes another tale of deadly intrigue and mystery as the world's greatest detective takes on what may prove to be his final case. I'm really excited to see Kindt using what he's learned in the monthly format of Mind MGMT, then applying that to the stand alone graphic novel that he favored so heavily in the past and creating something both new and old while still evolving his continued mastery of the form. A truly unique voice, Kindt stands to inject a whole new mixture of weirdness into not only indy books, but mainstream as well, slowly tainting the status quo.
