Aziz Bawany at the Comic Addiction, who also gave a great review to our last Popgun story, has now reviewed You Have Killed Me. He gives it an 8 out of 10, saying:
"While their first collaboration produced a great romance graphic novel with 12 Reasons Why I Love Her, Jamie S. Rich and Joëlle Jones push the boundaries to what many would expect of them, and produce an enjoyable Noir story with You Have Killed Me, an original graphic novel that is a slow build, but a really fun ride.
But what good is a detective story without the right setting? For this book, Joëlle Jones once again pushes her own boundaries to create some of her most inspiring and imaginative work. Crime works best in black and white, whether it’s actual setting or even character motivation, and Jones is able to capture that aspect perfectly. While some books will go for a mundane look due to being in color, the black and white nature of You Have Killed Me works quite well with its clear presentations and use of realistic lighting. One can only hope that there will be more Jones noir work down the line as her presentation of the genre is very unique compared to what’s out there already.
