Review: A Small Killing

A Small Killing is probably the most atypical Alan Moore book in existence, in that it is far more ordinary than anything else he’s written.  Most of Moore’s books tend to be ultra-stylistic narratives on pop-culture, history, and mysticism.  They’re usually brilliant, but hardly the most approachable of books.

So here’s a story about a British ad-man in the 80’s, although told as a bit of a horror story.  The protagonist, Timothy Hole, now at a low point in his social life and the high point of his career finds himself pursued by a child bent on killing him.  The end result is a bit predictable in a Twilight Zone sort of way, but Moore just manages to pull off the twist.  And it helps that the art from Oscar Zarate is gorgeous!  So, well worth a look.
