Abbott by Ahmed, Kivela, & Wordie

 I purchased Abbott because I loved the cover and I wanted to support a book with a diverse character. I didn't know much about the book, but I was completely drawn in by the first few pages.

Abbott is set in Detroit in 1972. Our main character is a reporter who visits a crime scene that gives her flash backs to the death of a loved one. This comic really gives us a snapshot of the 1970's including the discrimination a female reporter faced. The art is gritty with splashes of warm tones that makes you feel like you are walking the same streets as Abbott. I'm also really intrigued by the supernatural elements in this story. A really nice kick off to the series. I will definetly be reading future issues.
