Book Title: Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body #3
Book Description: Things are really heating up in Dallas. President Kennedy has been shot and killed. The gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, has been taken into custody. For obvious reasons, it’s all anyone can talk about. Almost everyone. Frank’s team is having a very different conversation. They have the body of Sonny Germs in a cooler and are awaiting instructions from Frank. When Frank gives the instructions they are vague. Have Germs’s body with them and be outside of the jail at 10:00 the next morning. When Oswald is brought out, do not lose him. How does Frank expect this to go smoothly right in front of half of the Dallas Police Department?

While the beginning of the third issue ot Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body doesn’t quite have a seamless transition from where we left off at the end of the second issue, it doesn’t take long to figure out what has happened. This issue has a very quick cadence to it as we go from scene to scene.
I liked how we get to see the gravity of the situation sink in with Frank’s team. They’ve come to realize that if things go sideways the word “conspirators” will be used to describe them. What’s worse, they’re already well past the point of no return.
As we get further into the story I’m understanding the purpose of having covers with silhouettes of the characters. They’re operating in the shadows. Nobody should be able to recognize them as anything more than just a face in the crowd.
The interior artwork continues to be spot on for this story. It maintains the balance between being too vivid and leaving something to the imagination.
At the end of the day it’s my opinion that Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body is well worth looking into, especially for conspiracy theory junkies. It has drama, action, and a very plausible explanation for what happened that day.
