'Limbo' by Dan Watters with art by Caspar Wijngaard is a graphic novel about a detective in a surreal setting. I liked the look and feel of this one.
Clay is a detective in a place called Dedande City. Based on things in the story, it seems to be the late 1980s or early 1990s in this city. Clay has been banged up pretty good, but he takes a case from a lady named Bridgette. She doesn't like her boss, who is nicknamed The Thumb. Things feel like a normal noir story up to this point, but they are about to take a turn for the weird.
The supernatural is here as well as alive in old television channels and video tapes. The spirit world can be contacted through mix tapes. Clay doesn't know how he got here and he's got questions, but first, he has some new enemies that want to silence him forever.
I liked the story and the artwork quite a bit. The story seems a bit normal at first, but then takes a good strange twist. I liked Clay's friend Sandy. She plays a different role than usual in this type of story, and I liked her competence.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Image Comics, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
