Ahhh Crime! Most of our customers are likely aware that I have a fondness for detective stories. This year, one publisher released a series of titles that fortify this neglected genre in the comic field. This is the primary reason I nominate Titan Comics for Best Publisher of 2017. Titan added Hard Case Crime Comics to their line card, featuring the pulp theme which represents the co-publishers book market products. The popularity of the BBC Sherlock Holmes series, combined with international stories like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, gave quick stability to the company in Previews and space on the newsstand shelf.
Here are some of the titles released. I personally recommend Triggerman as a sample of the style and content.
- Sherlock Holmes A Study In Pink
- The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
- The Girl Who Played With Fire
- Normandy Gold
I look forward to more attention grabbing mysteries from this new product line.
