Weegee Serial Photographer GN (2018 Conundrum Press) comic books
Written by Max de Radigues and Aleshia Jensen. Art and cover by Wauter Mannaert.
The New York photographer Weegee was known for staging crime scenes before the police showed up, altering a body position if it resulted in a better picture. His street photographs made him world famous. This graphic biography succeeds beautifully in capturing the contrasts in Weegee's life in pictures. The style in which Mannaert has drawn Weegee's hectic life is a perfect fit. His distinctive drawings have been compared to Will Eisner and create the impression that you're walking with Weegee through New York's iconic Lower East Side of eighty years ago.
