The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of NORMANDY GOLD #1 from the Hard Case Crime imprint of Titan Comics. The story is by Megan Abbott & Alison Gaylin; with art by Steve Scott, colors by Lovern Kindzierski, and letters by Comicraft.

Normandy is a tough as nails sheriff in the state of Oregon.  A phone call she gets from her sister Lila is suddenly interrupted with the sounds of her screaming. The local law enforcement’s lack of concern to Lila’s murder (since she was a prostitute) causes Normandy to take matters into her own hands. And Heaven help those who try to stop her or get in her way…

Alison Gaylin and Megan Abbott, successful crime fiction writers, have brought their talents to comics and it’s an impressive debut.  They perfectly captured the vibe of the exploitive/revenge stories from the 70’s. Steve Scott and Lovern Kindzierski provide a beautiful, but deadly visual to this dark tale. NORMANDY GOLD is worthy addition to the Hard Case Crime comics. Check it out.

NORMANDY GOLD #1 is at your local comic store or available at www.titan-comics.com.
