Super-dry, but brings an interesting bit of true-crime history to light.

A graphic novel account of a serial killer who plagued New Orleans in 1918 and 1919. He would chisel out a back door panel in the middle of the night before assaulting the occupants with their own axes or hatchets. Italian grocers seemed to be his preferred targets.

Really short, and really dry. It almost reads like a legal document. The black and white ink illustrations add to this effect.

There is a brief but delightful history of the city of New Orleans at the beginning. Worth reading just for that.
