Louise Brooks by Rick Geary

Comix great Rick Geary posted this drawing of Louise Brooks to my Facebook page, and I wanted to share it with everyone. (Geary is actually a distant relation of Brooks.) I for one can hardly wait for his new book, Louise Brooks, Detective (NBM Publishing - June 1, 2015) to be released in a few months.

Here is the publisher description of Louise Brooks, Detective: "A fictional story centered on actress Louise Brooks, this graphic novel by Rick Geary is spun around her actual brief meteoric career as a smoldering film actress who popularized bangs. Geary fantasizes about her coming back to her home town of Wichita where she becomes intrigued by a murder involving a friend, a famous reclusive writer and a shady beau. Not before she gets herself in great danger will she emerge with the solution the police fail to grasp."

Another of Rick Geary's earlier books is of related interest and also well worth checking out. Famous Players: The Mysterious Death of William Desmond Taylor (NBM Publishing) was published in 2009. Check it out.
