The Black Monday Murders, Issue #3 is the third double-issue comic out of the four that make up the first arc or what will become the first trade paperback. I hope that it becomes a long series, but who knows what'll happen by Issue #4. Jonathan Hickman, artist Tomm Coker, colorist Michael Garland, and my favorite letterer, Rus Wooton, have created a rich world full of high finance and the occult. In Issue #2, Viktor Eresko was arrested for the murder from Issue #1, but it's not as simple as that, of course.
This particular issue is very good, even in a series that is very good. Besides the obvious themes, the comic also touches upon classism, authority, and how the two comingle. Most of all, it's a comic about power, the power that comes with being a police officer, a high banking executive, or a member of the Russian mafia. There is occult power, perhaps even extraterrestrial power, and it's all up to a very strange detective to sort it all out.
