In Nazi occupied Paris, the death toll mounts, but the killer's motive and whereabouts remain unknown. The investigation uncovers a name-a doctor, whose skill and expertise match that of the meticulous crimes. But is this doctor the sadistic killer operating in the shadows, or just another victim of the Gestapo?

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Dec 23, 2019

    True stories are a bit of a mixed bag for me. I haven't seen the movie Titanic. Do I really need to? After all, I know what happens; it hits an iceberg and sinks. Surely I don't need to sit through three hours for that ending? Fans of the film will say that I should see it because its about the fledgling romance between the classes and how love is defined by sacrifice. Its all in the details and that is a great way to think of this book. The events may be true, but it's the details that are important and it is these details that Phillips and Kotz superbly fill in.

    The Butcher of Paris #2 reads like an excerpt from a script designed as a graphic novel for the bookstore market, then chopped into issues based on how many pages Dark Horse would publish each month. Read Full Review
