    The graphic novel adaptation of the Ace Atkins short story "Last Fair Deal Gone Down" makes for an interesting if not fully detailed introduction to the author's Nick Travers character. The story features Nick trying to track down the person who murdered a musician friend of his. With a messy personal life, the victim doesn't lack for possible suspects in his death. With compelling black and white art from Marco Finnegan, the story quickly establishes a noir sense of place for itself.

With compelling black and white art from Marco Finnegan, the story quickly establishes a noir sense of place for itself. The artwork is focused mainly on the characters of the story with backgrounds held to a minimum. Meeting Nick Travers in this format was intriguing and I'm looking forward to seeing how things continue going forward with future installments in this illustrated version of the books.

    A melancholy tale of murder and mystery gorgeously illustrated with a limited color palette by Marco Finnegan that sets the mood and tone of the story. Based on the novella that Atkins wrote but didn't get published at the time but that sparked the Nick Travers books that were published, it tells the story of the murder of a musician friend of Travers and the missing saxophone that puts Travers on the trail of the murderer.

    The story shows Nick at his best: in New Orleans, at JoJo's Blues Bar, helping an old friend, challenging the powerful, and getting in way over his head. Great Short Story... We need more Nick Travers!!

    Good Quick Read Even a short story of Nick Travers was fun to read. Hope there are more full length features on the horizon.

    Slight but decent. I'll read more if the series continues, but I'll hope for a bit more than the noir basics this volume delivered.

    Cheers to 12 Gauge Comics for publishing this book. This first Nick Travers Graphic Novel, based on Ace Atkins' New Orleans PI of the same name, is truly a piece of art. The illustrations of Marco Finnegan match the tone of Ace Atkins' words perfectly. The story moves along quickly and some of the supporting characters make only brief appearances. My hope is that there are many more of these books to come which will take the reader even deeper into the world of Nick Travers.

I loved this graphic novel and I'm happy to see independent comic publishers putting out hardboiled and noir crime. The medium has always been perfect for it going back to the pulp comic strips of the 1920s. The Last Fair Deal Gone Down captures a darker side of the Blues scene and creates a great marriage of words and images.

    A Nick Travers Short Story by Ace Atkins - 4 stars. This story was originally written several years ago and in the timeline of the Nick Travers stories happens just before Crossroad Blues. Set in New Orleans the story finds Nick searching for the killer of a blues sax player who was a regular at Jojo's bar, Nick's favorite hangout. This short shows Ace Atkins at his best - it has an engaging mystery, believable characters and situations, and a love of blues that comes through on every page.

It would be nice to see writing of this quality from Mr. Atkins again.

    I feel like Mr Atkins wrote this short piece just to set up his protagonist, Nick Travers, right before he started writing Crossroad Blues. To read before any Nick Travers book to get a quick understanding of Travers' world and motivations

    A good mood-setting piece and the art was good in places, but overall not unique enough.
