Big Hairy Drama: 02/28/15

Big Hairy Drama by Aaron Reynolds is the second of the Joey Fly Private Eye graphic novel mysteries. This time Joey Fly and his young assistant are hired to find a missing actress. Can she be found before the opening performance?

Joey Fly and his assistant learn how theaters work and how plays are put on. Tucked into the traditions and mechanics of putting on a play are the clues for finding the Diva.

There are also the same ridiculous bug related puns from the first book as well as the nod to the hard boiled detective genre. I found all the pieces came together into a tighter and more enjoyable story than the original.

Five stars
