Archer Coe and The Thousand Natural Shocks (Graphic Novel Review)

I received a free copy of this book, thanks to Oni Press and NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion in any way.

Today, I’ll be posting reviews for 2 graphic novels. It’ll be a little different from my usual format, meaning I’ll be keeping it short.

Book Blurb:
Archer Coe is a performing hypnotist with the stage name “The Mind’s Arrow.” When his nightly shows are over, he moonlights as a special consultant for the rich and powerful. His latest client is a woman who claims to know him but whom he swears he’s never met. Things take a strange turn for the worse when her husband ends up dead, and police suspect Archer of not just killing him, but also of being a sinister killer nicknamed “The Zipper.” Archer has no memory of any of this, but it’s making him doubt whether or not he’s got blood on his hands. Could the master of other people’s minds be losing his own?

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Author/Illustrator: Jamie S. Rich, Dan Christensen

Tags: Adult fiction, Noir, Mystery, Hypnotism, Retro

My Thoughts:

A mind-bending noir mystery with a distinct oldies feel. Tampering with people’s minds is definitely a dangerous occupation, especially when you doubt your own! Is your version the right one? Archer Coe Vol. 1 by Jamie S. Rich and Dan Christensen was a fun read, it keeps you on tenterhooks!

Also starring talking cats. (Probably should have just said that one sentence.)

Some sneak peeks:

It’s an adult fiction, so obviously not intended for children.
