Tony Isabella loooves Geary’s latest The Axe-Man of New Orleans:
“He takes his readers back to that time, draws us into the fearful moments of the spree, and leaves us more than a little unsettled afterwards. THE FULL FIVE TONYS!”
in the Comics Buyers Guide. And here’s Sequential Tart piping in on it:
“To die for! If you’re a comics reader and a fan of the true crime genre, this book belongs on your shelf. Prepare to be horrified and amused when you add this graphic novel to your treasury of murder.”
Says Comic Book Resources of The Broadcast. Sequential tart on this same book:
“Very compelling. Grade 7 out of 10.”
“If you’re a fan of techno-thrillers, you’ll enjoy this read. It’s refreshing to see a fast-paced adventure with some real ideas behind it.”

“The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans is the latest book in Rick Geary’s “A Treasury of XXth Century Murder” series. While it’s unquestionably ghastly of me to revel in these histories of murder most foul, I do find them irresistibly inviting and even charming.
Geary’s style lends itself perfectly to this shocking tale of unsolved killings in post-World War I New Orleans. His matter-of-fact narration and illustrations are sedate given the gory nature of the murders, but his calm unveiling of the facts actually adds to the unsettling horror. He takes his readers back to that time, draws us into the fearful moments of the spree, and leaves us more than a little unsettled afterwards.
The darkly charming Axe-Man of New Orleans earns the full five out of five Tonys.”
