    In the first book of The Black Monday Murders we found out that an American rich dude was murdered by a Russian rich dude; in the second book of The Black Monday Murders, the investigating detective finds out what the reader already knows: that an American rich dude was indeed killed b...

    The Black Monday Murders is a strange tale about cabals and money cults that drive the world economic cycles. The first volume was pretty strange but intriguing and this second volume actually notches up the suspense a bit. I can't say that I follow everything that is happening, but th...

    Wow! This was as good as the first volume! What a deep and twisted story about the true power of wealth and the Market. The art and story are so solid here and the characters are just as vibrant and sinister as the first volume. The twists and turns especially when the detective and Pr...

    Fuck, I barely have any clue what's happening but I love it. Gods, dark economics, vampire murder familiars, the spookiest scenes in any comic I've ever read... yeah, this is my jam. ...

    In this volume Jonathan Hickman is less self-indulgently cryptic and the plot follows a straighter path if no less weird. I won't pretend I understood everything- some scenes totally eluded me- but globally it follows the powerplay between schools on one hand while on the other hand Th...

    It's books like this that keep me reading comics. I read the first volume last year right after it first came out, and I liked it, but it felt like I was missing something or just wasn't completely getting it. So fast forward about a year and volume 2 comes out and I pick it up. I star...

    The second volume made this series much more intriguing. The story here is taken to a whole new level. We finally come across the dark, evil, manipulative, all consuming god "Mammon". The mysteries are now being unfolded slowly. The code being deciphered. The whole story is dev...

    4.5* Once the world buidling slowly unveils and kicks in. Once the characters start to take place. Once the intrigue has built to a stage where you want more at every turn of the page. You know you've become hooked. The amazing thing is that very minimal story has been unveiled but ...

    Hard to believe this is written by the same guy who barfed up East of West. There's a treat in v2: (view spoiler)[we get to meet Mammon himself. And the aesthetic is perfect. Dwelling deep in catacombs that exist beneath the Fed, Mammon and his retainers are all about animal skulls...

    I'm kind of in two minds about this series, on the one hand it's a great concept and really well executed. I love the format that the story is portrayed in [with the files and emails scattered throughout] and the art really fits the overall mood well. On the other hand, I struggle ...

    Blurb: The reason the Devil always collects his dues, is to pay-off his debt to Mammon. Hickman's masterful and complex story-telling doesn't disappoint as once again readers are thrust into the world of the obscenely wealthy and the disturbingly powerful Caina-Kankrin banking gro...

    You can't serve God and Mammon, but you, apparently, serve mammon as a god. In Hickman's paranoid and occult-ridden series, the secret schools of millionaires are cannibals serving a demonic god drives the market, and the regularly of the business cycle is a form of human sacrifice. Th...

    Volume two is worth the wait. The story, which in volume one seemed impossibly complex, is simplified and streamlined in this second installment. The writing is original, and the art is some of the best I've seen. I'd recommend starting with volume one, but buy this one at the same tim...

    More super magically powered baddies (aided by a gory meal or two) and a meeting with the god Mammon that reminded me of a cheaper Neil Gaiman Sandman episode all add up to .....what? What?s the point? Maybe the detective will give a regular human?s perspective and then a reason to...

    This volume was less confusing than the first one, and the structure of the world is STARTING to shake out and become a bit more comprehensible. I'm still enjoying this and looking forward to the next volume. I'm particularly liking the artwork. ...

    The design of the book, the complex and intense story with multiple layers, ... typical Hickman. WANT MORE.... ...

    This is really good stuff, but the delay between volume 1 and volume 2 meant that I wasn't really on top of what the heck was happening here, without going back to re-read the earlier stuff. ...

    I'm really glad I decided to pick this series up. It's proven to be one of the more intriguing graphic series I've read thus far; a great diversion from much of my usual reading. Something truly dark and creepy. For me, the whole "blood is money, money is power" concept gives me bo...

    (this is the same review for Vol. 1, so if you read that, you don't need to read this) Jonathan Hickman, I love you. This is a horror book as written by Hickman. Fans of Hickman will know what to expect--it's very dry, interspersed with important symbols and secret glyphs, and pe...

    I'm really glad I decided to pick this series up. It's proven to be one of the more intriguing graphic series I've read thus far; a great diversion from much of my usual reading. Something truly dark and creepy. For me, the whole "blood is money, money is power" concept gives me bo...

    (this is the same review for Vol. 1, so if you read that, you don't need to read this) Jonathan Hickman, I love you. This is a horror book as written by Hickman. Fans of Hickman will know what to expect--it's very dry, interspersed with important symbols and secret glyphs, and pe...

    Volume One was fantastic, fulfilling so many of my dream comic qualities including an intriguing story that involves politics, economics, supernatural, horror, crime with gorgeous and unique artwork (reminds me of Alex Maleev) and a distinct and appropriate color scheme and lettering s...

    The Black Monday Murders volume one was one of my favorite discoveries last year. Volume two is just as good if not better. In a time where series with complex mythologies dole out answers at a snail's pace, this second volume offers unexpected and extremely welcome satisfaction by str...

    The Black Monday Murders is a strange tale about cabals and money cults that drive the world economic cycles. The first volume was pretty strange but intriguing and this second volume actually notches up the suspense a bit. I can't say that I follow everything that is happening, but th...

    Fuck, I barely have any clue what's happening but I love it. Gods, dark economics, vampire murder familiars, the spookiest scenes in any comic I've ever read... yeah, this is my jam. ...

    It's books like this that keep me reading comics. I read the first volume last year right after it first came out, and I liked it, but it felt like I was missing something or just wasn't completely getting it. So fast forward about a year and volume 2 comes out and I pick it up. I star...

    4.5* Once the world buidling slowly unveils and kicks in. Once the characters start to take place. Once the intrigue has built to a stage where you want more at every turn of the page. You know you've become hooked. The amazing thing is that very minimal story has been unveiled but ...

    Hard to believe this is written by the same guy who barfed up East of West. There's a treat in v2: (view spoiler)[we get to meet Mammon himself. And the aesthetic is perfect. Dwelling deep in catacombs that exist beneath the Fed, Mammon and his retainers are all about animal skulls...

    I'm kind of in two minds about this series, on the one hand it's a great concept and really well executed. I love the format that the story is portrayed in [with the files and emails scattered throughout] and the art really fits the overall mood well. On the other hand, I struggle ...

    Blurb: The reason the Devil always collects his dues, is to pay-off his debt to Mammon. Hickman's masterful and complex story-telling doesn't disappoint as once again readers are thrust into the world of the obscenely wealthy and the disturbingly powerful Caina-Kankrin banking gro...

    You can't serve God and Mammon, but you, apparently, serve mammon as a god. In Hickman's paranoid and occult-ridden series, the secret schools of millionaires are cannibals serving a demonic god drives the market, and the regularly of the business cycle is a form of human sacrifice. Th...

    Volume two is worth the wait. The story, which in volume one seemed impossibly complex, is simplified and streamlined in this second installment. The writing is original, and the art is some of the best I've seen. I'd recommend starting with volume one, but buy this one at the same tim...

    What. What what what what WHAT?! I have zero ideas of what to expect in the next installment because what did I just witness? What is going on? Where is this going and why is all this happening and WHAT? Just when I thought it couldn't get more crazy, it did. Just when I thought it cou...

    I'm really glad I decided to pick this series up. It's proven to be one of the more intriguing graphic series I've read thus far; a great diversion from much of my usual reading. Something truly dark and creepy. For me, the whole "blood is money, money is power" concept gives me bo...

    (this is the same review for Vol. 1, so if you read that, you don't need to read this) Jonathan Hickman, I love you. This is a horror book as written by Hickman. Fans of Hickman will know what to expect--it's very dry, interspersed with important symbols and secret glyphs, and pe...

    Volume One was fantastic, fulfilling so many of my dream comic qualities including an intriguing story that involves politics, economics, supernatural, horror, crime with gorgeous and unique artwork (reminds me of Alex Maleev) and a distinct and appropriate color scheme and lettering s...

    The Black Monday Murders volume one was one of my favorite discoveries last year. Volume two is just as good if not better. In a time where series with complex mythologies dole out answers at a snail's pace, this second volume offers unexpected and extremely welcome satisfaction by str...

    This volume is both more and less than the previous volume. It's a bit more straightforward, but seems to tell less of a story, especially of the relationships between the houses. At the same time, the policeman and the professor have a much more important and disturbing role that lead...

    In the first book of The Black Monday Murders we found out that an American rich dude was murdered by a Russian rich dude; in the second book of The Black Monday Murders, the investigating detective finds out what the reader already knows: that an American rich dude was indeed killed b...

    The Black Monday Murders is a strange tale about cabals and money cults that drive the world economic cycles. The first volume was pretty strange but intriguing and this second volume actually notches up the suspense a bit. I can't say that I follow everything that is happening, but th...

    Wow! This was as good as the first volume! What a deep and twisted story about the true power of wealth and the Market. The art and story are so solid here and the characters are just as vibrant and sinister as the first volume. The twists and turns especially when the detective and Pr...

    Fuck, I barely have any clue what's happening but I love it. Gods, dark economics, vampire murder familiars, the spookiest scenes in any comic I've ever read... yeah, this is my jam. ...

    In this volume Jonathan Hickman is less self-indulgently cryptic and the plot follows a straighter path if no less weird. I won't pretend I understood everything- some scenes totally eluded me- but globally it follows the powerplay between schools on one hand while on the other hand Th...

    It's books like this that keep me reading comics. I read the first volume last year right after it first came out, and I liked it, but it felt like I was missing something or just wasn't completely getting it. So fast forward about a year and volume 2 comes out and I pick it up. I star...

    The second volume made this series much more intriguing. The story here is taken to a whole new level. We finally come across the dark, evil, manipulative, all consuming god "Mammon". The mysteries are now being unfolded slowly. The code being deciphered. The whole story is dev...

    Hard to believe this is written by the same guy who barfed up East of West. There's a treat in v2: (view spoiler)[we get to meet Mammon himself. And the aesthetic is perfect. Dwelling deep in catacombs that exist beneath the Fed, Mammon and his retainers are all about animal skulls...

    I'm kind of in two minds about this series, on the one hand it's a great concept and really well executed. I love the format that the story is portrayed in [with the files and emails scattered throughout] and the art really fits the overall mood well. On the other hand, I struggle ...

    Blurb: The reason the Devil always collects his dues, is to pay-off his debt to Mammon. Hickman's masterful and complex story-telling doesn't disappoint as once again readers are thrust into the world of the obscenely wealthy and the disturbingly powerful Caina-Kankrin banking gro...

    You can't serve God and Mammon, but you, apparently, serve mammon as a god. In Hickman's paranoid and occult-ridden series, the secret schools of millionaires are cannibals serving a demonic god drives the market, and the regularly of the business cycle is a form of human sacrifice. Th...

    Volume two is worth the wait. The story, which in volume one seemed impossibly complex, is simplified and streamlined in this second installment. The writing is original, and the art is some of the best I've seen. I'd recommend starting with volume one, but buy this one at the same tim...

    More super magically powered baddies (aided by a gory meal or two) and a meeting with the god Mammon that reminded me of a cheaper Neil Gaiman Sandman episode all add up to .....what? What?s the point? Maybe the detective will give a regular human?s perspective and then a reason to...

    This volume was less confusing than the first one, and the structure of the world is STARTING to shake out and become a bit more comprehensible. I'm still enjoying this and looking forward to the next volume. I'm particularly liking the artwork. ...

    This is really good stuff, but the delay between volume 1 and volume 2 meant that I wasn't really on top of what the heck was happening here, without going back to re-read the earlier stuff. ...

    It's books like this that keep me reading comics. I read the first volume last year right after it first came out, and I liked it, but it felt like I was missing something or just wasn't completely getting it. So fast forward about a year and volume 2 comes out and I pick it up. I star...

    The second volume made this series much more intriguing. The story here is taken to a whole new level. We finally come across the dark, evil, manipulative, all consuming god "Mammon". The mysteries are now being unfolded slowly. The code being deciphered. The whole story is dev...

    In the first book of The Black Monday Murders we found out that an American rich dude was murdered by a Russian rich dude; in the second book of The Black Monday Murders, the investigating detective finds out what the reader already knows: that an American rich dude was indeed killed b...

    The Black Monday Murders is a strange tale about cabals and money cults that drive the world economic cycles. The first volume was pretty strange but intriguing and this second volume actually notches up the suspense a bit. I can't say that I follow everything that is happening, but th...

    Wow! This was as good as the first volume! What a deep and twisted story about the true power of wealth and the Market. The art and story are so solid here and the characters are just as vibrant and sinister as the first volume. The twists and turns especially when the detective and Pr...

    4.5* Once the world buidling slowly unveils and kicks in. Once the characters start to take place. Once the intrigue has built to a stage where you want more at every turn of the page. You know you've become hooked. The amazing thing is that very minimal story has been unveiled but ...

    Hard to believe this is written by the same guy who barfed up East of West. There's a treat in v2: (view spoiler)[we get to meet Mammon himself. And the aesthetic is perfect. Dwelling deep in catacombs that exist beneath the Fed, Mammon and his retainers are all about animal skulls...

    I'm kind of in two minds about this series, on the one hand it's a great concept and really well executed. I love the format that the story is portrayed in [with the files and emails scattered throughout] and the art really fits the overall mood well. On the other hand, I struggle ...

    Blurb: The reason the Devil always collects his dues, is to pay-off his debt to Mammon. Hickman's masterful and complex story-telling doesn't disappoint as once again readers are thrust into the world of the obscenely wealthy and the disturbingly powerful Caina-Kankrin banking gro...

    You can't serve God and Mammon, but you, apparently, serve mammon as a god. In Hickman's paranoid and occult-ridden series, the secret schools of millionaires are cannibals serving a demonic god drives the market, and the regularly of the business cycle is a form of human sacrifice. Th...

    Volume two is worth the wait. The story, which in volume one seemed impossibly complex, is simplified and streamlined in this second installment. The writing is original, and the art is some of the best I've seen. I'd recommend starting with volume one, but buy this one at the same tim...

    More super magically powered baddies (aided by a gory meal or two) and a meeting with the god Mammon that reminded me of a cheaper Neil Gaiman Sandman episode all add up to .....what? What?s the point? Maybe the detective will give a regular human?s perspective and then a reason to...

    This volume was less confusing than the first one, and the structure of the world is STARTING to shake out and become a bit more comprehensible. I'm still enjoying this and looking forward to the next volume. I'm particularly liking the artwork. ...

    The design of the book, the complex and intense story with multiple layers, ... typical Hickman. WANT MORE.... ...

    This is really good stuff, but the delay between volume 1 and volume 2 meant that I wasn't really on top of what the heck was happening here, without going back to re-read the earlier stuff. ...

    Why did I dislike the first one so much? I can't remember. But this got me back on board, maybe because it actually gave me some grounded "reality" of the universe to grab onto. ...

    The ultimate in conspiracies. I want in Jon. ...

    Okay this just got creepy! Still can?t put it down though. ...

    It?s slowly making more sense, but when is the next one coming out?! I?m addicted now!! ...

    *** I had to read the first volume of this twisting horror of a psychological noir mystery mindfuck to just catch up enough to start to understand Volume Two. And then I gave this volume the good, slow read it so deserves. This is more than just a fascinating story with beautifu...

    I'm really glad I decided to pick this series up. It's proven to be one of the more intriguing graphic series I've read thus far; a great diversion from much of my usual reading. Something truly dark and creepy. For me, the whole "blood is money, money is power" concept gives me bo...
