CBR4 #54 Tricked by Alex Robinson

Alex's new graphic novel follows the lives of six people - a reclusive rock legend, a heartbroken waitress, a counterfeiter, an obsessive crank, a lost daughter, and a backstabbing lover - whose lives are unconnected until an act of violence affects them all in different ways.

First graphic novel I have read since Maus in college, so I am unsure how to "review" the book - text versus pictures.  The plot line was similar to A Visit From The Goon Squad as there were music industry undertones with the characters intertwining here and there.

An interesting feature of the book was that the chapters counted down to the climax of the plot.  I was glad to see the book didn't end at the climax, but gave the reader a sense of how the characters ended up.  My one grievance is that the dialogue was hard to read sometimes.
