Like a true crime podcast crossed with a long-lost diary, Where the Body Was is unlike anything Brubaker and Phillips have ever done, and a must-have for all their avid fans!

A boarding house full of druggies. A neglected housewife. A young girl who thinks she’s a superhero. A cop who wants to be left alone. And a Private Detective looking for a runaway girl. These stories collide one fateful summer in Where the Body Was, a tale of love and murder in the suburbs, told from a dozen different points of view. All the neighbors on the block have an opinion about the murder and how it happened, but which of them is telling the truth?

Starting with a map of the crime scene, this murder mystery follows the ripples of this killing as they echo through decades of love and loss and passion and violence.

Where the Body Was is a tour-de-force readers will be obsessed with from grandmasters Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips—the bestselling multiple Eisner award winning creators of Pulp, Reckless, Criminal, and the recent critical hit Night Fever.

Early praise for Where the Body Was:

"Prolific collaborators Brubaker and Phillips follow their surrealistic thriller Night Fever with this playfully experimental, though no less grittily gripping, stand-alone whodunit-style murder mystery set in a suburban neighborhood over the summer of 1984...VERDICT A fast-paced mystery, propelled by a fascinating cast of characters, that builds to a profoundly moving and deeply romantic climax. Absolutely not to be missed." —Library Journal, starred review

“A masterfully-told puzzle box mystery with a fiercely beating human heart.” —Jordan Harper, Edgar Award winning author of Everybody Knows and She Rides Shotgun

"Brubaker and Phillips have done it again—a crime story that somehow, in its twists, turns, and thrills, reminds us of the poignancy of lost dreams, missed connections, and a past we'll always crave but never return to." —Sara Gran, author of Come Closer and the Claire DeWitt series

"Sean Phillips and Ed Brubaker represent the gold standard for comics noir—brutal, beautiful, and best." —Ian Rankin, bestselling author of the John Rebus books
