I really ended up enjoying Past Lies. The mystery was tangled enough to be enjoyable, emotional motivations understandable, and the line work was so clean and decisive! Deceptively simple, clear storytelling.

unfortunatley the end was quite predictable..good effort never the less..


its been rivetting so far...the black and white adds to the noir feel of the book and story line...decent artwork but the plot is fun...

Beautiful mystery story (fake PI takes on a cold case involving past lives), clean b&w art - fab job from Oni Press there.

I really enjoyed this mystery about a fake PI who gets caught up in an unsolved 25-year old murder. Great pacing and good fun.

A pleasantly quick read with good art and only a few implausible situations I couldn't wrap my mind around. Nevertheless, a nicely distracting read for the bus ride to work.

Cool little mystery. Dude hires a PI because he’s remembering a past life and wants to find out who murdered his past self. And whoever the killer was reeeeeally doesn’t want them to find out.
