The Yard is graphic novelist Alex Grecian’s first published full length endeavor. He succeeds at capturing the mood of post-Jack the Ripper London, and what it must
have been like to be a copper with an uncooperative populace and a lack of today’s forensic tools. We see the beginnings of modern crime detection with rudimentary experiments in fingerprinting and postmortem analysis. Grecian creates characters that beg for a this to be the start of a series, as indeed it will be. It begins a bit slowly, but gathers momentum and suspense as the tension heightens to an exciting conclusion.
