Comic book illustrator Michael Yoo is having a terrible week. He's just arrived in San Diego for Comic-Con -- the annual nerd
Mardi Gras that triples the beachside city's population with 150,000 fans. Michael hopes to spend the next five days working
his booth in Artist's Alley, where he'll sign autographs and sell sketches for $40 a pop. Instead he's implicated in the death
of his editor, the widely feared and reviled Danny Lieber. There are plenty of suspects onhand -- from rival illustrators
to burlesque cos-players. But the most valuable clues might be hidden in Michael's own sketchbook. He's spent a good portion
of the convention illustrating people he's met and places he's visited, and he's inadvertantly captured some very important
information. The devil is in the details, and readers who pay careful attention to this book's black-and-white sketches will
be on the right trail to unmask the murderer.
There's murder at San Diego Comic Con in this entertaining summer read
from a Marvel/DC comics veteran Fred Van Lente, featuring illustrations in classic comic book style.
