but seriously, the storytelling flows masterfully. i love this.
i do have to ask…was it really necessary to have blanche be so murderous? she kills two characters in cold blood and literally stabs her own hand to get somebody fired. with a dirty fork. (fuck)

I disagree with several points in this review. First, I do not think that Miss Jo (who is a transexual female Jonathan, not a male transvestite), was ever intended to be just a minor character. I feel that this is one of the best representations of a transexual character I have seen in a comic book or otherwise. Second, I would also disagree that Blanche’s investigation is weakened or goes nowhere. She gets her revenge by killing two of the people responsible for Agatha’s murder and the photos that miss Jo gives her at the end surely leave the possibility for further revenge open.

I must say that I was a bit wrong-footed by the bleak ending, but then that’s art – it’s more interesting when it subverts your expectations.

I don’t think this is set in the 1930s – it all looks 1920s to me, with Josephine Baker appearing (as a male transvestite!!!) and Louise Brooks, in the form of Blanche, with her skinny flapper looks and her bobbed hair. In fact the whole setting – ingenue in a brothel – looks like it was lifted from a Louise Brooks film, “Diary of a Lost Girl.”
