42. Tricked by Alex Robinson

I really don't know anything about the context of this graphic novel. I just found it in the english section of the comic book wing at the bibliotheque nationale. It had a nice, solid line style and what looked like an engaging storyline from the few snippets I skimmed.

The story follows six characters in their individual threads. They all take place in or around a major midwestern city (Chicago?) and as the narrative progresses, you start to see the gradually increasing connections between the threads. Each story is intriguing and the characters interesting. And the payoff was, at least for me, satisfying.

A good read. Pick it up if you see it at your local comic shop or library.
