DESPAIR AT ITS FINEST: DAVID LAPHAM’S ‘MURDER ME DEAD’ [REVIEW]
By John Parker
When discussing the oeuvre of David Lapham, the comic that comes up again and again is obviously Stray Bullets. As great as Stray Bullets is, though, it tends to overshadow the rest of Lapham’s body of work rather unfairly in some cases.Despite the several very good comics that Lapham has produced besides his most famous title – including the incomplete Young Liars,the raucous Juice Squeezers, and of course WWF Battlemania – none can match the near-mythic level of quality and reputation of Stray Bullets, and tend to just get left out of the conversation.
The new trade paperback collection of Murder Me Dead, available now from Image Comics, could help change that trend. A dark, stirring, and emotionally manipulative noir about self-destruction, lies, and guilt, it may be the best “other” Lapham comic in his catalog.
I’ve written at great length about my love for David Lapham’s Stray Bullets, and the unbridled glee its rebirth at Image Comics has brought into my life. I even went so far as to proclaim it the best crime comic of all time, because my opinion carries so much goddamn weight. Since then, the new series, Stray Bullets: Killers has proven me absolutely correct, and initiated new readers to the mania and mayhem exclusive to its pages alone.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Comic-Con Red Band Trailer
Dolores del Rio: A Mexican from a affluent family, Dolores set out to become an actress after her family lost their wealth after the Mexican Revolutionary War. She may not be a household name, but in Mexico she is the quintessential face of femininity and is considered something of mythical status throughout Latin America. Even Marlene Dietrich considered her friend Dolores “The most beautiful woman”. Before Rita Hayworth, it was Dolores that was wrapped around Orson Welles arm. She was popular with American audiences in the 20s, 30s and 40s, and starred alongside Fred and Ginger, Anthony Quinn, Sophia Loren, James Stewart and even Elvis Presley. But once it became hard to find good roles and make box office hits in Hollywood, she left to Mexico to revive her film career. She didn’t come back to Hollywood until the 60s. (X)
