Format: Paperback
This is a nonfiction graphic novel about the FBI shootout at Kansas City, 1933. That event was used by the FBI to expand their agencies in their fight against organized crime; this was the day and age of Public Enemies such as Baby Face Nelson and John Dillinger. I like how well researched this book was for a graphic novel. It even has endnotes and historical citation! The book argues that the FBI blamed Pretty Boy Floyd for the shootout when in actually he wasn’t involved and that the shooting began with an accidental weapons discharged of a shotgun by an law enforcement officer. It’s interesting to see how the FBI director J. Edgar Hoover exploited this event to grow his agency and the official version is filled with a lot of holes. I enjoyed it for it being a graphic novel, a historical work and a mystery of sort.

Format: Paperback
This is a very worthwhile read for anyone who is interested in the Depression era, particularly in gangsters of the period. The fact that it is a "graphic novel" may be distracting to some, but nevertheless, it is a well crafted story that tells the events of of the massacre at Kansas City's Union Station that allowed J. Edgar Hoover to gain the publicity and clout he needed to fully arm his G-men and be given a free hand in law enforcement from that day forward. FBI men even today will still swear that Pretty Boy Floyd was at the scene, despite a good amount of evidence to the contrary. IF one is to nitpick, the only failings of this book is that by creating fictional characters and putting some real people in places they were not (which the author Ande Parks admits in his notes), it undoes the very thing it seems to set out to do, which is do an authentic, factual retelling of the true story. Overall, though, very good.
