Shane Murphy showcasing Birdland on FCBD 2014!

Birdland is a 24 page issue, black and white comic book series written and illustrated by Shane Matthew Murphy. It is set amidst the final moments of that decade of opulence referred to by F. Scott Fitzgerald as the “Jazz Age”, and the emerging terror and misery of the Great Depression.

The story itself is an exploration of personal failure, contrition and redemption played out against a backdrop of economic collapse and the struggle to restore stability to a nation crippled by fear.

While specifically written as a crime noir, Birdland is also heavily rooted in music, art and religious history, with a back story spanning three centuries to the Baroque period, the Counter-Reformation, and the origins of Opera.
