Thrilling Cold War Graphic Novel
June 20, 2017
The Coldest City Antony Johnston, Sam Hart Pub Date June 13, 2017 Paperback | 176 pages Comics & Graphic Novels / Crime & Mystery
If you enjoy realistic spy stories like those of LeCarre, you will definitely want to read The Coldest City. The black and white format and shadowy images where details are partially obscured fits well with the Cold War era tale. Danger and deception are all part of the game. No one is what they seem and sides are always changing. The plot is neatly framed, shown as remembrances as Lorraine is being debriefed. As a woman, her competence is questioned, while her loyalty and honesty is not.( Format reminds me of the new version of Witness for the Prosecution with Toby Jones). The Coldest City is a thrilling read with an ending twist that will leave you breathless. I look forward to seeing The Coldest City in film form.
