I've discovered over the years that a lot of crime/mystery fiction fans and writers also read and love comics. Lately more and more are crossing over.
Some of the mystery writers also doing comics include Max Allan Collins, Greg Rucka, Brad Meltzer, Denise Mina, Ian Rankin, Davis Morrell, Greg Hurwitz, Gary Phillps and Joe Lansdale. There are others who are working on projects that will be coming out soon.
I've alos seen a few comics writers start writing novels, new books from Warren Ellis and Mike Carey just came out.
Manuel Ramos, a wonderful writer turned me onto a comic called 100 Bullets which is now a favorite of mine. Hellbalzer of course is kind of a supernatural pI of sorts. There are a lot of titles that would appeal to mystery and crime fiction fans.
So, who reads comics?
