    Racist and sexist again - white male killers, no minority representation. On top of that, add shameless pandering and cronyism - setting the tale at a comic convention and stuffing it full of real artists and authors, not as cameos but as full blown suspects and witnesses recurring for the whole five issue run. Hack work like that deserves to be canceled, and it was.

    A little too self-indulgent at times for my taste, but I guess the setting being a comic con lends itself to that? Pretty fun read though- cool to read a CSI episode play out in comic form

    My Review: CSI-Dying in the Gutters I decided to read this book because I needed to read a graphic novel and at first I couldn’t find any of my liking until I saw this one. The way it was sitting on the shelf felt like it was calling out me and so I decided to read it. The category on the bingo board that I put it into was “a graphic novel” because it is a graphic novel. I absolutely loved this category as I am a very slow reader and to read a full on novel it takes me ages and ages and ages. So w My Review: CSI-Dying in the Gutters I decided to read this book because I needed to read a graphic novel and at first I couldn’t find any of my liking until I saw this one. The way it was sitting on the shelf felt like it was calling out me and so I decided to read it. The category on the bingo board that I put it into was “a graphic novel” because it is a graphic novel. I absolutely loved this category as I am a very slow reader and to read a full on novel it takes me ages and ages and ages. So when I read this book it only took me about an hour. Just one hour to read a novel a record time for me and it was all because it was a graphic novel! My favourite quote from this book is “people keep telling me that comics fans are geeks, how strange they are, how skewed up their perspective is, but deep down inside, they really are just like everybody else.” I really like this quote because it is the very last line of the book and it is a great way to end the book. It shows how even Grissom changes his first opinion of comic fans. Something new that I learned from this book is to be persistent. Throughout the book Joe Quesada is accused of the murder of Rich Johnston and throughout the book he is persistent to prove that he is innocent. In the end the truth comes out and the evidence backs up his story. Eventually the police and the CSI realize that all his claims of innocence are true and that he has never been guilty and he is free to live his life out of jail. A character that I found interesting to read about was Nick Stokes. He was interesting to read about because throughout the book he changes, he gives a new thing a go and he has good qualities. At first he didn’t read comics at all. While investigating a murder at the Comic Con he decides to give reading comics a go and realizes that he really enjoys them (and I realized that I really enjoy graphic novels). By the end of the book there is a picture of him sitting at his desk with a giant stack of comics. I really enjoyed this graphic novel and loved how fast I was able to read them so I will most definitely now go to that other part of the library, where I never used to go, and pick up a few graphic novels next time.

    This particular Graphic novel had a great setting- A comic convention in Las Vegas. It had a cast of cameos from the comic book world, including such luminaries as Stan Lee and Peter David. (Peter David has one line and it seems true-to-life, a vulgar comment-- simply read his "Sir Appropros of Nothing" fantasy series- specifically the first few chapters of the third book and you'll know why I have this opinion) The story deals with a lot of dirty dealing and backstabbing in the comics industry..

I still cannot imagine CSI personell involved in interrogation- it doesn't even make for good drama... However, the cast and the setting make this graphic novel hum along pretty well, with enough mystery to keep the reader turning the pages to see who double dealt who.

    This book seems to be tailored for an audience that is extremely familiar with the various real life comic book industry personalities who are featured as characters in the story. I'm just a former CSI fan with no real knowledge of the comic book business, and reading this book I felt like there was another level to the story that I was missing because I didn't know who anybody was. I guess the basic plot was alright, but I think you need to be a hardcore comic book fan to get the most out of it This book seems to be tailored for an audience that is extremely familiar with the various real life comic book industry personalities who are featured as characters in the story.

Only to a very select audience.

    It's the second graphic novel I've read, the other was a CSI:NY graphic novel. The format takes some getting used to, very stylized but the story works better for me than a traditional comic book. I thought the setting of a comic con and a side story about video games was perfect for the usual graphic novel reader and the usual CSI fan.

    This book was very interesting. i didnt really like that it was a graphic novel though. i like to have a little imagination when i read a book. but it was still a good book. the beginning was a little confusing too, but it might have just been me trying to get used to the book.

    A murder mystery set at a comic book convention, with real creators as the suspects. It was silly and fun to read about which comic book writer/artist might have killed someone, but I believe I would have enjoyed the book more if I knew anything about the CSI show.

    I can't review this in any objective way. It featured good-natured mockery of comic book professionals and cracked me up way more than is probably healthy. What more do you need?
