    Fuck, I barely have any clue what's happening but I love it. Gods, dark economics, vampire murder familiars, the spookiest scenes in any comic I've ever read... yeah, this is my jam.

    It's books like this that keep me reading comics. I read the first volume last year right after it first came out, and I liked it, but it felt like I was missing something or just wasn't completely getting it. So fast forward about a year and volume 2 comes out and I pick it up. I started reading Vol. 2 and pretty quick I realized I needed to go back and read Vol. 1 again, because there was a lot I didn't remember. So when I read Vol. 1 for the s...

    I'm kind of in two minds about this series, on the one hand it's a great concept and really well executed. I love the format that the story is portrayed in [with the files and emails scattered throughout] and the art really fits the overall mood well. On the other hand, I struggle to remember the various plot threads from one volume to the next and also to tell some of the characters apart and remember how all the various groups relate to each ot...

    Volume two is worth the wait. The story, which in volume one seemed impossibly complex, is simplified and streamlined in this second installment. The writing is original, and the art is some of the best I've seen. I'd recommend starting with volume one, but buy this one at the same time. This is a series I hope continues for a long time. Hopefully volume three doesn't have the same delays that plagued this volume.

    Why did I dislike the first one so much? I can't remember. But this got me back on board, maybe because it actually gave me some grounded "reality" of the universe to grab onto.

    Supposingthat instead ofa clever knowledgeof "the market"success on Walstreetcame from a deal with a demon.And the success ofan investment Housecame not from skillbut from the sacrificesyou gave to the god MammonThis book is very relevanttoday since the 1% continueto screw the rest of us overbut they continueto make fortunes.Is it by magic?

    Fell further down the deep dark rabbit hole of the occult on Wall Street today, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. We're slowly learning more about the grisly universe in which the god Mammon lies behind all things. It's a slightly disorientating journey, but in the best way, like hopping on your favorite bumpy adventure thrill ride at a theme park at night. The major events of Volume 2 kept me flipping through pages quickly. The characters, especial...

    It is...very strange to read this book at the same time as reading about the real banking industry. There's a certain level of over-the-top here that works excellently with the story and art, but at the same time pairs oddly with callouts to real families, in particular those with as many historical associations as the Rothschilds. And needless to say, the Fed being a powerful repository in its own right is amusing. Read this if you like cerebral...

    The Black Monday Murders is a strange tale about cabals and money cults that drive the world economic cycles. The first volume was pretty strange but intriguing and this second volume actually notches up the suspense a bit. I can't say that I follow everything that is happening, but the graphics are splendid (and gory), and the dialog is great as well. I loved when the detective and the old man visit Mammon, perhaps the high point of this book ac...

    Excellent volume of Black Monday Murders. Here, Hickman provides answers to questions held over from the previous volume, but he introduces an equal amount of uncertainty. Riveting stuff. The art is also gorgeous. Characters are rendered as realistically as can be expected with facial expressions perfectly matching the tone of the scene. Also everything heavily shadowed, creating a bleak and creepy atmosphere. This is a fantastic comic. All hail ...

    So freaking cool! Damn this is well done! It’s nice too see the higher reviews on this second volume. It wasn’t as easy to see the direction of this story after the first volume but it really something. The myth of it they are using isn’t exactly new, but how they are applying it with the stock market, and mammon, and money, and worship is just so freaking cool. I love this book. Must read! 5 stars. Now you guys better not make me wait so l...

    I can mostly understand what’s going on, but that meeting threw me for a loop, and I legit did not understand the significance of what they found out until the very end. Also, do not mess with Ria. She does NOT play around. My favorite bits in this are all the text and graphics stuff that helps to flesh out the world. Almost like I’m reading a history book or something, which is super cool.
