After seeing this book at some friends’ cabin, I was delighted to find a copy at Powell’s Book. Strange tales told in graphic novel format. Incidentally, this is the best book of the series so far.

Big bad scandals which filled tabloids for ages were presented in stories packed with nastiness of human nature. The politicians, actors and businessmen were prone do make mistakes bad ones. The sad thing is that the book is to USA centric.

Recommends it for: folks who like tabloids
I read this book quite a while back and only remembered it when I pulled it off the shelf to send it out via interlibrary loan.

It's a good, quick, trashy read. It was good in the same way that People magazine is good.
