review Luna Park 103 The promise of America only to become an enforcer in the Brooklyn mob Now he chases his ghosts with all he has left booze heroin and his lover Marina part time prostitute and full time fortune tellerThe only way the two of them can escape their miserable fates hinges on a desperate plan that will put them between warring mobs and span a century from contempora. Do you like the idea of a decrepit Coney Island as a cheap metaphor for the insincerity of the Statue of Liberty How about as a symbol for the modern decline of the American empire But you don t feel like taking the train all the way to the edge of Brooklyn Do you think Russians are interesting but don t feel like familiarizing yourself with Russian history or literature by reading books without pictures Fear not our intrepid author gives according to his ability a panorama of Russian stereotypes throughout the ages With a limited palette Luna Park paints a picture of despotic thugs well read junkies and shamanic whores These caricatures run around interact and because they have the ghosts of Ivan Grozny Great Bronze Euestrian Peter and ol Uncle Joe running around in their DNA they can t help themselves from causing a bloody goddamn mess The end result is a comic book that is long and boring enough to be marketed as a graphic novel All that s lacking is a foreword by Anne Appelbaum to make this an ideal stocking stuffer for Russophobes too refined for Yakov Smirnoff and not yet ready for Robert Conuest Blue Moose reading books without pictures Fear not our intrepid author gives according to his ability a panorama of Russian stereotypes throughout the ages With a limited palette Luna Park paints a picture of despotic thugs well Reindeer and Caribou read junkies and shamanic whores These caricatures The Soul Thief run around interact and because they have the ghosts of Ivan Grozny Great Bronze Euestrian Peter and ol Uncle Joe Anıtsal İstanbul running around in their DNA they can t help themselves from causing a bloody goddamn mess The end Anıtsal İstanbul result is a comic book that is long and boring enough to be marketed as a graphic novel All that s lacking is a foreword by Anne Appelbaum to make this an ideal stocking stuffer for Russophobes too Anıtsal İstanbul refined for Yakov Smirnoff and not yet Niko Love Me Harder #2 ready for Robert Conuest

review Luna Park 103 Ry Coney Island to the Russia of the Second Chechen War to spellbinding 1910s New York Mixing historical novel immigrant fiction and crime thriller LUNA PARK marks Kevin Baker's return to Coney Island the setting of his critically beloved Dreamland and features breathtaking art by Danijel Zezelj LOVELESS with to die for colors by Dave Stewart DC THE NEW FRONTI. This book kind of broke my brain but not for the twist ending I m so proud of myself I picked up on the first subtle clue Parts of it were staggeringly beautiful and of it was staggeringly heartbreaking I wish the art had a little definition but that s just personal preference It s strong and evocative and suits the story well The story itself isn t what it seems at first and ultimately asks the uestion is humanity doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over again
