Mammoth Book of Best Crime Comics

Paul Gravett

Here is the first ever popular collection of crime comics, edited by Paul Gravett and designed by Peter Stanbury - the 25 best graphic short stories in the crime genre, spanning all the colours of Noir, from classic American newspaper strip serials and notorious uncensored comic books to today's global graphic novel masterpieces.

This must-have collection is fully loaded with some of the greatest writers and artists in comics publishing, including Frank Miller, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Will Eisner, Max Allan Collins, Johnny Craig, Alex Toth, Joe Kubert, Bernie Krigstein - plus adaptations of/collaborations by famous crime writers, such as Dashiel Hammett, Mickey Spillane, Lesley Charteris and Raymond Chandler.

Meet a gallery of hard-boiled, iconic heroes and killers inside including: Dashiell Hammett's smooth operator Secret Agent X-9, Will Eisner's masked mystery man The Spirit, Mickey Spillane's heavyweight tough-guy Mike Hammer, Frank Miller's scarred and brutal Marvin from Sin City, Munoz and Sampayo's brooding ex-cop Alack Sinner, Abuli and Bernet's venal hitman-for-hire Torpedo 1936, Max Allan Collins and Terry Beatty's femme fatale investigator Ms. Tree, and Charles Burns' Mexican wrestler and defective detective El Borbah. This is similar in format to the publisher’s fine Mammoth Book of Best New Manga series which we’ve really enjoyed.
