Gaby Dunn’s queer true crime graphic novel BURY THE LEDE

0 261

Cub reporter Madison Jackson is young, scrappy, and hungry to prove that she deserves her coveted college internship at the premiere newspaper in town, The Boston Lede, so when her police scanner mentions a brutal murder tied to the prominent Boston Kennedys, Madison races to the crime scene, looking for the scoop of the century.

What she finds instead is the woman who’ll 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.


I was unaware of the Boom! Studios is an American comic book and graphic novel publisher. I have always been a fan of comic book illustrations and this book has some great Illustrations by Claire Roe.

Gaby Dunn is a New York Times best-selling author and this, her first graphic novel, was inspired by Dunn’s own experiences as a young reporter at The Boston Globe.

BURY THE LEDE is a thrilling story about a young reporter’s search for truth leading her down a dark path.

I really enjoyed this as an adult comic book and as a graphic novel, a queer true crime story.
