The Expert’s Guide To HBO’s ‘True Detective’ And Weird Comic Book Fiction

HBO True Detective Weird Comic Book Fiction Morrison Moore Guide

True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto has claimed that Alan Moore Moore and Grant Morrison were the first writers to excite him about the possibilities of storytelling.

With everyone looking to solve the many remaining mysteries of True Detective, it’s tempting to ask: are comic books the key? Pizzolatto’s spectacular Moore crib aside, I’d go with with a big no. Ain’t nothing going to settle the debate around Carcosa let alone Marty Hart’s hot dating skills, but comics do represent a largely unexplored and appropriately strange route into the show. So without further ado here’s our by no means exhaustive guide to True Detective and weird comic books.

SPOILER WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for True Detective, Top 10, From Hell and some of The Invisibles.

Ellis’s ‘Black Summer’ Poses Tough Questions

blacksum0

If there's one thing Warren Ellis loves to do, it's go totally overboard with a concept. Take his upcoming novel Crooked Little Vein (which I'm not allowed to review yet, but look for it July 1!), a crime noir detective story, which let's just say involves a government conspiracy to hide a second constitution of the United States that's written on alien skin
