Kaching Comic Reviews

Review: Normandy Gold #1

The short-short review of Normandy Gold?

Stop reading this, go read… hold on, I’ve used this intro before…

Official synopsis: When her younger sister is found at the center of a brutal murder case, tough-as-nails Sheriff Normandy Gold is forced to dive headfirst into the seedy world of 1970s prostitution.


Sounds cheesy, done before and old-fashioned, I know. It really isn’t. Written by author Megan Abbott (You Will Know Me, TV writer on HBO’s The Deuce), and bestselling crime novelist Alison Gaylin (What Remains Of Me), with art by Steve Scott (Triggerman, JLA), this tale set in the 70’s is a pageturner for sure.


If you are expecting me to go deeper into the story, sorry to dissapoint, I rather you read it for yourselves, this way there’s no chance for spoilers.


The writing is great, giving Gold a solid reason and way of working her case and the art is realistic enough to look lifelike but keep the comicstyle and not look like they had to use a real person as a model. It can work but like most movie adaptations, the art will suffer due to having to look TOO much like the actor/actress. Really looking forward to seeing how this series progresses and what Scott can bring to the pages of the other issues.

About the Author

Smart ass, know-it-all, usually right, world traveller, photographer, down to earth. These are some of the words that can describe Ron. At least, after censoring all the naughty words from that list.
