From Booklist:

On the heels of their successful printings of Bayou and High Moon (both 2009), DC’s innovative Web-comic imprint is offering the first collection of this Sunday-funnies-format strip. A trio of detectives—nerdy scientist Ernest Baxter, spunky flapper Mindy Markus, and wiseguy gargoyle Roscoe—investigates supernatural cases in Prohibition-era New York. Their main adversary, Mr. You, is a blank-faced baddie who rips off people’s faces to wear as his own (don’t worry; they slip easily back onto their original owner’s heads), but they also tangle with Bluebeard and Rumpelstiltskin, not to mention a few vampires, werewolves, mummies, and a giant owl creature. It’s a glib, retro blend of tried-and-true elements—black-and-white noir, fractured fairy tales, and Dick Tracy–worthy villains—with plenty of humor, light romance, and jaw-socking action. Though not specifically aimed at kids—there is some mild raciness of the negligee variety and a few bad-guy deaths—the tone makes this just about right for middle-schoolers with a hankering for old-timey detective stories. Which doesn’t mean it isn’t also swell for teens and adults, natch. Grades 5-8. --Ian Chipman
