    Ehhhhh, I was not the hugest fan of this one The art style was great, but I found the plot to be extremely disjointed and hard to follow Also there was a scene in which the main character a journalist roofies someone to get information and then never faces any consequences and I just This was unfortunately just not for me.

    The story was as intensely gripping, mysterious and as gorgeously visual as I had hoped it would be Bury the Lede had great rep for POC and LGBTQ characters and the inclusion of political machinations made this feel authentic and steeped in reality While this story was quite a lot darker and deeper than I had anticipated, for the most part this was an interesting and unusual read.Blurb Reporter for the Boston Lede, Madison Jackson is young, scrappy, and hungry to prove that she deserves her coveted college internship When her police scanner mentions a brutal murder tied to the prominent Boston Kennedys, Madison races to the crime scene What she finds will change her life forever Dahlia Kennedy, celebrity socialite, now widow, covered in gore and the prime suspect in the murder of her husband and child When Dahlia refuses to talk to anyone but Madison, they begin a dangerous game of cat and mouse that leads the young journalist down a twisted path.First off, the graphics in this book were so well done The colours were vivid and really eye catching Hats off to Miquel Muerto the colourist Besides for beautiful contrast and bold tones, the illustration boasted characters that truly were their appearance The little details included for each person contributed to the story in a manner that isn t always achieved in graphic novels Their posture, accessories, head angles and facial expressions sometimes spoke than the words and that s exactly what I m eager to experience of in this genre.The main character Maddison was a mostly likeable She had grit, determination and a commitment to proving her worth that s reminiscent of a self confidence I can only hope for Maddy did however, display some less enviable traits Disloyalty, selfishness and a slight ego But really, she s a reporter To some extent, getting a front page worthy story seemed to require these traits At least, Maddison thought so.The murder investigation seemed to almost take a back seat at times in this story and that wasn t what I had been expecting The story still kept my interest though and the pages flew by There were times when I got a little confused with the events It took me a while to adjust to her investigation of an alternate news worthy story It all seemed to relate to the original murder though, so that was a nice tie in However, I do think this could have been explored and explained a bit toward the end The last few pages felt quite rushed and not as fleshed out as they could have been.Overall, this was an interesting read and introduced me to the beautiful work of Gaby Dunn, Claire Roe and Miquel Muerto I m looking forward to of their work in the future This ARC was provided by BOOM Studios via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    3.5 stars.The art is amazing but the story was a bit messy in the pacing that it was a bit hard to follow Nevertheless, it was still interesting and I liked that it had a detective vibe despite the main character being a reporter.I found Dahlia to be really intriguing especially with the way she would throw hints Madison and her whole motive It would have been interesting if the main character was a bit smarter and less selfish with the cop who s always tipping her but somewhat gets better as it goes on at times.My only problem with the art is the inconsistency with Madison s body shape Sometimes she s chubby sometimes she look thin.Overall, I want to continue with the series if they plan to continue the story and I hope the pacing isn t as messy as this one It felt like Madison was going to be worse rather than better with the way she does her work to get the truth despite her losing family and friends.Thank you Netgalley for providing me with the digital copy for an honest review.trigger warning Gore, murder, sexual content.

    Want to see bookish things from me Check out my YouTube channel received a copy of this graphic novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest review 3.5 5 Star Madison Jackson, a 21 year old intern for the Boston Lede, is trying to get her first headline in the paper She gets her opportunity when a socialite named Dahlia Kennedy, murdering her husband and son comes to light Dahlia, who refused to talk to any other reporter, confesses to Madison and thus shoves her into the limelight This was quite a short graphic novel, but it was enjoyable for what it was I loved the colour scheme chosen for this, there were a lot of purple and blue tones that made the book feel very dark and eerie The representation was also great, there were many LGBTQ and POC characters included, without it being a vocal point The biggest complaint I have for this would be that at times the plot felt rushed and under developed It almost felt like I had picked the book up in the middle of the series and was missing information But overall, I did enjoy the story and wanted to keep reading to discover the conclusion.

    Move over Clark Kent Dunn s Bury the Lede is a dark brooding crime filled graphic novel featuring a young cub reporter trying to get her first headline and a bloody family killing psychopath who confesses to the cub reporter Terrific artwork Good storyline Inordinate number of lesbian bi characters But, the main focus is on the crime story and the widow, who like Lady MacBeth, emerges from the crime scene covered in blood.

    actual rating 4.2 5 this story was about an intern named Madison Jackson who was eager to do something to make everyone start to recognise her as a real reporter enter the gorgeous yet murderous Dahlia Kennedy who refused to talk to anyone else about her recent crime but to the rookie Madison then, people start to see her a subject to sell the story but what was really at stack, here i love LOVE the illustrations and the colours and how unapologetic queer this book is the story felt a bit rush at times but it was all good for me it wasn t that hard to understand the characters arc especially to feel the hunger in Madison s eyes for .overall, it was an enjoyable and fast paced read disclaimer thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with the digital ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Lovely artwork and colours, a diverse cast of characters, a complex and difficult heroine, and great LGBT and POC representation I loved this The story wasn t super compelling to me, but I liked the characters so much that I d have watched them investigate pretty much anything I hope they ll all be back in future books and no spoilers but the protagonist has made a pretty huge mess of her interpersonal relationships by the end of the book, so there s plenty to mine in future volumes.

    I was provided with a copy of this book by Netgalley Thank you This graphic novel carries an intricate mystery told from the point of view of an intern at the Lede, a notorious Boston newspaper The characters are incredible I liked Madison Jackson as the main character I ve never traveled so far into the world of reporters and magazines Her journey in that world is ours Madison is relatable because she is introverted but ambitious She is bisexual and also another character is queer I m proud to see other sexualities represented in graphic novels This is not a soft mystery Some images can be brutal to the soft hearted and there is an erotic scene, so kids should stay away.Judging the mystery, I think that some parts could have been better I was not impressed by the way things turn out, so that s why I took two stars away.However, there are many things about this graphic novel that I loved, including the characters and the art.I ve watched Gaby Dunn on youtube many times, so I am left speechless that she is such a great author I m really glad I got to experience this side of her.

    Thanks to NetGalley and Boom Studios for providing an eARC in exchange for an honest review.Bury the Lede is a noir crime graphic novel about Madison Jackson, a young intern at one of Boston s most important newspapers who s willing to do whatever she has to in order to get a front page scoop.While I loved the art style, I was not the biggest fan of the plot I think it was disjointed and pretty confusing I had to go back many times to try to figure out who or what the hell they were talking about as it felt like there were some missing scenes Everything felt rushed and like it was trying to do too much for such a short amount of pages Also, while I don t mind morally gray characters, I think the MC s illegal actions should ve had some consequences for her or at least been addressed in some way or form.

    Whoa, darker and deeper than I thought and there were warnings about that For that, I am so grateful The artwork is stark and beautiful I can t count the amount of times I stopped focusing on the story to just admire how well done and stylistic the art is The story is confusing a bit and I felt that it should have been much longer, however I get it and it wasn t hard to get into the swing of things as you kept reading QUEER and POC representation galore I love it and I love that we re getting so much of this steadily.It s a really nice thing to read and see honestly I hope we get out of Gaby Dunn and Claire Roe Everything here is very promising.Thanks much to Netgalley and the publisher for this copy of my ARC All opinions are my own.
