The Saga of the Bloody Benders A Treasury of Victorian MurderIn his next volume Geary takes us out to the wild west and the just opened up prairies of Kansas Out on a deserted stretch of road linking newly The Saga of the Bloody Benders is the final of Rick Geary's altogether eight graphic novels on various murder cases of the Victorian era Depicting the arrival of a murderous German immigrant family in rural Kansas shortly after the Civil War it makes no attempt whatsoever to analyze its characters' actions and worldviews from a contemporary perspective Instead it tells the story in a way that both visually and linguistically reflects the mentality of its setting The black and white drawings are meticulously crafted but far from exploitative the page layouts thoughtfully composed but rather static and the narrative flow is generally very slow by the standards of today's fast paced culture Characters are not described in psychological terms that did not yet exist but in ways that mirror the Puritan values and the mindset of the period as hardy and honest and worthy and hardworking for example A missionary is not characterized as a problematic figure participating in genocide but as a selfless man who has dedicated his life to converting the savages a widely accepted common sense assumption among European conuerors and settlers at the time The result is a different kind of western a realistic fascinating often bewildering sometimes disturbing journey into the hearts and minds of 1870's rural America
