      Brad Meltzer’s graphic novel, Identity Crisis, is a true masterpiece. This story, published by DC, features a heartbreaking murder mystery and features slews of favorite Justice League characters. Rags Morales pencils the graphic novel, and his work is divine. I would recommend this story to any comic fan.

      How many superheroes does it take to solve a murder? The answer

      that it takes a lot, especially when the spouse of a super hero is murdered in most unusual circumstances. The story is tight and focused and really pulls the reader in from the very start. I felt for these characters in a way I reserve for people in real life. These characters are portrayed as real people, with real emotions and flaws. The dialogue is so realistic it contributes to the brilliance of the work as a whole. Meltzer uses unique colored thought panels so you can easily tell who is thinking what. This also allows you to follow a ‘conversation’ between off screen heroes while watching something else unfound. I found this technique highly imaginative.

      This is a story ...

      I just cannot put down. The pencils by Morales are spellbinding. They literally pop off the page. The colors are rich and bright. There is nothing boring about this graphic novel whatsoever. Even the quiet moments of introspection are vivid and will pull you in. Meltzer does a masterful job of discussing relationships between spouses, between fathers
      and sons, mothers and daughters, and members of the super hero family in the DC universe. You are given access to the innermost thoughts of so many characters you can appreciate their diverse perspectives on this tragedy. I want to add that it has a twist ending too! This is a masterful 10 on a 1-10 scale. Buy it right now.
