Peculia is the hottest sleuth to steam up a paperback since Nancy Drew bought her first diaphragm in the ‘90s. Sala has developed a distinctive narrative and visual style that can best be described as gothic humor. Peculia, the intrepid heroine, is a precocious and rebellious adventurer who fearlessly wanders through a world filled with zombies, monsters and more, assisted only by her trusty butler. The Peculia collection is an excellent introduction to Richard Sala’s idiosyncratic universe of noir-ish mystery, suspense, and occasional whimsy.
