    Great grimy riff on 70s paranoid noir with a protagonist reminiscent of Brubaker?s Velvet. ...

    Kind of disappointing. The story was a cliche-filled mix of any number of 1970s political potboilers, coupled with Watergate-conspiracy paranoia and a healthy helping of sex and gore. I didn't buy it, from the first page to the last. This is the second Hard Case Crime graphic novel I'v...

    I expected more out of a Megan Abbott book even if it was a graphic novel. This one seems a bit un-tidy where things move along but sometimes things are "skipped" in my mind. Kind of a mish-mosh. Not recommended. ...

    I'm a big fan of Abbott's novels, so I was disappointed in this book. I don't think there's enough room for proper character development, forcing motivation and rushing plot. As a result, the main character's decision-making is hard to understand. I like the 70s setting and mood, but I...

    Normandy Gold is a small town sheriff who is thrust into the violent underbelly of crime in 1970's Washington DC following an ill-fated telephone call from her younger sister. The call, strange in itself, given Normandy and Lila hadn't spoken in while, gets a whole lot stranger whe...

    Excellent artwork. Mostly well-written, the only thing I found slightly hard to believe was how easily and quickly Ms. Gold fit into the undercover role she played. I hope to read more. ...

    Megan Abbott and Alison Gaylin team-up for the Hard Case Crime series' first graphic novel, Normandy Gold. A love-letter to 70's thrillers, this six-issue miniseries reads just like you'd expect -- hard hitting, hard drinking, and completely over the top. In short, it's a blast...i...

    This graphic novel (or collection of five comic books) tells a hard boiled story set in the 1970s of a striking female sheriff who comes to Washington DC to investigate/avenge the murder of her estranged little sister who got caught up in a high class escort ring with ties that go the ...

    Has more nudity than any graphic novel I've read, and, excepting Locke & Key, more blood 'n' guts. I say that just to indicate that Normandy Gold really aims to capture the sleaze and the seediness of 70s exploitation films, but also the creeping paranoia and the damaged characters...

    As a fan of Megan Abbott's prose, I've been looking forward to this, but while the art is very good (and surprisingly graphic) I found the story rather lackluster. We don't get a strong sense of Normandy's character before things take off and then it's a bit disjointed. I didn't get th...

    I'm torn on this. The art is incredible and the story is interesting. However it is very graphic which I normally don't mind. If you like the 70s films that they reference you'll love it. ...

    Reading this is like watching a great seventies crime film, each panel a cinematic shot. Add to this a sexy and brutal protagonist, Normandy Gold is a must-read. ...

    Very good for what it was. Almost a revenge noir comic in the vein of 70s cinema. Raunchy and filled with sex and violence. Just like the movies. And the storyline was interesting too. I enjoyed it. I?m a fan of Megan Abbott and have found her novels with teenage protagonist really g...
