Grade 10 Up–Federal conservation officer Iris Shaw is murdered in a bombing by a bunch of right-wing extremists in the midst of a rural land-rights struggle. Her killers have no idea that they also destroyed her unborn child. Although Iris wasn't sure that she was going to keep the baby, she still mourns the fact that she never got to make that decision before she died. With the help of the Crow, she returns from the dead in order to avenge not only her own death, but also that of the fetus. Armed with nothing but her anger and a few weapons, Iris hunts down her killers one by one and teaches them what it's like to suffer and lose your family. She also begins to wonder: If exacting ultimate pain is the goal, when does vengeance cross the line to brutality? Once she has killed her killers, what happens next? What is the price to the soul? This graphic novel lacks the original bizarre and captivating artwork of J. O'Barr, but Maleev's black-and-white illustrations manage to capture the horror and brutality of the original Crow with minimal effort. The story is a trifle predictable, but fans will not want to miss this version.–Erin Dennington, Fairfax County Public Library, Chantilly, VA
