I’m in danger of turning into a broken record on this subject: Geary has been doing the same thing brilliantly for so long that I’ve run out of different ways to say it.
Black Dahlia is the seventh in his “Treasury of XXth Century Murder,” which followed eight similar books in the “Treasury of Victorian Murder” (and one even earlier book, The Treasury of Victorian Murder, Vol. 1, a miscellaneous collection that was the prototype for the whole sub-career). Each one is a roughly comic-book-sized hardcover, of about eighty pages, telling the story of one famous historical murder. He’s done Abraham Lincoln and James Garfield, Jack the Ripper and H.H. Holmes, Sacco and Vanzetti and several more not as well-known in the 21st century. Each book is carefully researched and filled with maps and diagrams of the towns and murder locations — all drawn by Geary in his precise but puckish style. »

It’s been over a year since Freeform’s only procedural drama, Stitchers, graced television screens with its season two finale, making the third season’s return more anticipated than ever -- and also requiring a bit of a refresher for viewers.
The series follows a government agency where people can “stitch” into the memories of people recently killed to investigate their unsolved murders.
For those that haven’t been binge-watching the entire series in preparation, the most important tidbit to remember from last season’s dramatic cliffhanger is Kirsten (Emma Ishta) was trapped in her own stitch memory while Cameron (Kyle Harris) did everything he could to bring her back out.
So where will our favorite team of scientific investigative murderers be when we pick up with them again? Et exclusively caught up with the cast ahead of the June 5 season premiere, and it looks like we will find them exactly where we left them.
