Crime fiction is fraught with dark corners, menacing villains, shady double-crosses and twisty plots — usually with unique and memorable backdrops and conflicted, morally ambiguous protagonists. Authors William Boyle and Alex Segura are no strangers to the space, both prepping to unleash their latest works on the world. Blackout, the fourth in Segura’s acclaimed Miami-based Pete Fernandez PI series, finds the recovering alcoholic ex-journalist getting pulled back into a crime he’d failed to solve years before, which also happens to be entangled in the tentacles of a dormant and deadly Miami cult. Boyle’s second novel, The Lonely Witness, tells the story of Amy Falconetti, an ex-party girl now living a solitary life helping the house-bound receive communion in Brooklyn’s Gravesend neighborhood. While following the son of one of her elderly friend’s caretakers, she stumbles into a deadly crime that she feels compelled to solve—but completely unprepared to face. More

It's really strange but it happens all the time, that elusive Zeitgeist thing that people talk about. People just unconsciously end up on the same wavelength in the world." Gerard Way and I are sitting in the Donor Lounge of Durham's Carolina Theatre on the second day of North Carolina Comicon. More

Two of the most interesting ongoing DC Comics titles are Black Canary and Batgirland writer Brenden Fletcher is lucky enough to work on both. While Batgirl is a touchstone of DC's dedication to diversity and relatable characters that buck the trend of hyper-masculine superheroes, Black Canary is a full-fledged rock band drama, as the title character tours the country fronting a band that also goes by the name Black Canary and fends off mysterious villains.  More
