Head Games: The Graphic Novel by Craig McDonald
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Based on the novel, this graphic adaptation is an action-packed thriller. I've not read the original but this has piqued my interest in McDonald's series. It has a noir feeling to it like an old Bogey movie, but this character is an adventurer as he takes a Kerouician road trip to Mexico with a young journalist friend. Mission: bring the missing head of Pancho Villa to the buyer, but others are trailing him to get that skull including a certain Yale fraternity with a penchant for skulls. As an introduction to the series this gave me a feel for all the characters and was a tight plot with lots of twists. I'll be looking out for McDonald's work in the future.
