    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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!! ...

    Supposing that instead of a clever knowledge of "the market" success on Walstreet came from a deal with a demon. And the success of an investment House came not from skill but from the sacrifices you gave to the god Mammon This book is very relevant today since the 1% conti...

    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...

    *** 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...

    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...

    Fell further down the deep dark rabbit hole of the occult on Wall Street today, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. We're slowly learning more about the grisly universe in which the god Mammon lies behind all things. It's a slightly disorientating journey, but in the best way, like hopping ...

    It is...very strange to read this book at the same time as reading about the real banking industry. There's a certain level of over-the-top here that works excellently with the story and art, but at the same time pairs oddly with callouts to real families, in particular those with as m...

    Excellent volume of Black Monday Murders. Here, Hickman provides answers to questions held over from the previous volume, but he introduces an equal amount of uncertainty. Riveting stuff. The art is also gorgeous. Characters are rendered as realistically as can be expected with facial ...

    So freaking cool! Damn this is well done! It?s nice too see the higher reviews on this second volume. It wasn?t as easy to see the direction of this story after the first volume but it really something. The myth of it they are using isn?t exactly new, but how they are applying it...

    I can mostly understand what?s going on, but that meeting threw me for a loop, and I legit did not understand the significance of what they found out until the very end. Also, do not mess with Ria. She does NOT play around. My favorite bits in this are all the text and graphics stuff...

    If your into this type of conspiracy then this is so far great, definitely not for everyone but nice and bloody and creepy for those who are into it. Though I am a little confused by some of it but yeah just going with the flow here. ...

    I am all-in on this series? magic, witches, and the global economy, plus some very dark imagery and redacted documents? What?s not to love. The plot is complicated but there are a good number of callbacks to to help you remember past issues/volumes. ...

    *** 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...

    Fell further down the deep dark rabbit hole of the occult on Wall Street today, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. We're slowly learning more about the grisly universe in which the god Mammon lies behind all things. It's a slightly disorientating journey, but in the best way, like hopping ...

    It is...very strange to read this book at the same time as reading about the real banking industry. There's a certain level of over-the-top here that works excellently with the story and art, but at the same time pairs oddly with callouts to real families, in particular those with as m...

    Excellent volume of Black Monday Murders. Here, Hickman provides answers to questions held over from the previous volume, but he introduces an equal amount of uncertainty. Riveting stuff. The art is also gorgeous. Characters are rendered as realistically as can be expected with facial ...

    So freaking cool! Damn this is well done! It?s nice too see the higher reviews on this second volume. It wasn?t as easy to see the direction of this story after the first volume but it really something. The myth of it they are using isn?t exactly new, but how they are applying it...

    I can mostly understand what?s going on, but that meeting threw me for a loop, and I legit did not understand the significance of what they found out until the very end. Also, do not mess with Ria. She does NOT play around. My favorite bits in this are all the text and graphics stuff...

    If your into this type of conspiracy then this is so far great, definitely not for everyone but nice and bloody and creepy for those who are into it. Though I am a little confused by some of it but yeah just going with the flow here. ...

    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. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    Fell further down the deep dark rabbit hole of the occult on Wall Street today, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. We're slowly learning more about the grisly universe in which the god Mammon lies behind all things. It's a slightly disorientating journey, but in the best way, like hopping ...

    It is...very strange to read this book at the same time as reading about the real banking industry. There's a certain level of over-the-top here that works excellently with the story and art, but at the same time pairs oddly with callouts to real families, in particular those with as m...

    Excellent volume of Black Monday Murders. Here, Hickman provides answers to questions held over from the previous volume, but he introduces an equal amount of uncertainty. Riveting stuff. The art is also gorgeous. Characters are rendered as realistically as can be expected with facial ...

    So freaking cool! Damn this is well done! It?s nice too see the higher reviews on this second volume. It wasn?t as easy to see the direction of this story after the first volume but it really something. The myth of it they are using isn?t exactly new, but how they are applying it...

    I can mostly understand what?s going on, but that meeting threw me for a loop, and I legit did not understand the significance of what they found out until the very end. Also, do not mess with Ria. She does NOT play around. My favorite bits in this are all the text and graphics stuff...

    If your into this type of conspiracy then this is so far great, definitely not for everyone but nice and bloody and creepy for those who are into it. Though I am a little confused by some of it but yeah just going with the flow here. ...

    I am all-in on this series? magic, witches, and the global economy, plus some very dark imagery and redacted documents? What?s not to love. The plot is complicated but there are a good number of callbacks to to help you remember past issues/volumes. ...

    Money cults and murder. Sounds like the ten o'clock news. ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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!! ...

    Supposing that instead of a clever knowledge of "the market" success on Walstreet came from a deal with a demon. And the success of an investment House came not from skill but from the sacrifices you gave to the god Mammon This book is very relevant today since the 1% conti...

    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...

    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...

    *** 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...

    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...

    Fell further down the deep dark rabbit hole of the occult on Wall Street today, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. We're slowly learning more about the grisly universe in which the god Mammon lies behind all things. It's a slightly disorientating journey, but in the best way, like hopping ...

    It is...very strange to read this book at the same time as reading about the real banking industry. There's a certain level of over-the-top here that works excellently with the story and art, but at the same time pairs oddly with callouts to real families, in particular those with as m...

    Excellent volume of Black Monday Murders. Here, Hickman provides answers to questions held over from the previous volume, but he introduces an equal amount of uncertainty. Riveting stuff. The art is also gorgeous. Characters are rendered as realistically as can be expected with facial ...

    So freaking cool! Damn this is well done! It?s nice too see the higher reviews on this second volume. It wasn?t as easy to see the direction of this story after the first volume but it really something. The myth of it they are using isn?t exactly new, but how they are applying it...
