G-Man’s highlights of 2016: Day 9 – Deer Editor

Deer Editor #1

A recent discovery through Kickstarter was Deer Editor by writer Ryan K Lindsay & artist Sami Kivelä and it was an instant hit for me.

It’s an anthropomorphic tale about Bucky, the editor of a crime beat on ‘The Truth’ who is also a deer – sounds weird and doesn’t get explained but to be honest it doesn’t need to because it’s so damn good.  The journalist in him sees this antler noir tale take a trip into a mix of politics, secret vampire cults and road trip rescues and sees every possible element covered by the three issue arc.  A winding tale that’s involving and with some beautiful art to capture a gritty feeling of a world weary hero just trying to get to the truth.
