Like a true crime podcast crossed with a long-lost diary, Where the Body Was is unlike anything Brubaker and Phillips have ever done, and a must-have for all their avid fans!

A boarding house full of druggies. A neglected housewife. A young girl who thinks she’s a superhero. A cop who wants to be left alone. And a Private Detective looking for a runaway girl. These stories collide one fateful summer in 
Where the Body Was, a tale of love and murder in the suburbs, told from a dozen different points of view. All the neighbors on the block have an opinion about the murder and how it happened, but which of them is telling the truth?

Starting with a map of the crime scene, this murder mystery follows the ripples of this killing as they echo through decades of love and loss and passion and violence.

Where the Body Was is a tour-de-force readers will be obsessed with from grandmasters Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips—the bestselling multiple Eisner award winning creators of Pulp, Reckless, Criminal, and the recent critical hit Night Fever.

Early praise for Where the Body Was:

"Prolific collaborators Brubaker and Phillips follow their surrealistic thriller 
Night Fever with this playfully experimental, though no less grittily gripping, stand-alone whodunit-style murder mystery set in a suburban neighborhood over the summer of 1984...VERDICT A fast-paced mystery, propelled by a fascinating cast of characters, that builds to a profoundly moving and deeply romantic climax. Absolutely not to be missed." —Library Journal, starred review

“A masterfully-told puzzle box mystery with a fiercely beating human heart.” —
Jordan Harper, Edgar Award winning author of Everybody Knows and She Rides Shotgun

"Brubaker and Phillips have done it again—a crime story that somehow, in its twists, turns, and thrills, reminds us of the poignancy of lost dreams, missed connections, and a past we'll always crave but never return to." —
Sara Gran, author of Come Closer and the Claire DeWitt series

"Sean Phillips and Ed Brubaker represent the gold standard for comics noir—brutal, beautiful, and best." —
Ian Rankin, bestselling author of the John Rebus books

Select praise for Brubaker & Phillips:

"Brubaker and Phillips's books have always been about eight years ahead of their time." —
Brian K. VaughanSAGA, Paper Girls

"Brubaker & Phillips continue to make sweet music together, broadcast to you in the form of the best comics around." —
Robert KirkmanInvincible, The Walking Dead

"Ed and Sean are that rare longterm collaboration that never become complacent, each project is a new revelation, the love visibly increased, the enthusiasm for the craft only growing over time. You don't have to consider the purchase, you make it on instinct at this point." —
Rick RemenderDeadly Class, Black Science

"Like Scorsese and De Niro, Brubaker and Phillips are the unmatched masters of a certain kind of storytelling—those fables of doomed and deluded men who are ready to die bloody, defending the tatters of their soiled American dreams. A new title from the sharpshooters behind 
Criminal and Fatale is reason enough to go on living." —Joe HillLocke & Key, Horns, NOS4A2

"Brubaker and Phillips have achieved the sort of creative consistency that'd justify critics filing their INSTANT CLASSIC reviews before they even read whatever they put out next." —
Kieron GillenThe Wicked + The Divine, Die

"I’ve been reading Ed Brubaker comics since the first appearance of Ed Brubaker comics and every single time he announces a new title I mutter to myself: 'ugh! I wish I would’ve thought of that!'" —
Brian Michael BendisPowers

"I'm a pretty easy mark for any Brubaker-Philips creation..." —
Jonathan HickmanEast of West, House of X

“Two of the best in the business, no contest.” —
Kelly Sue DeConnickCaptain Marvel, B*tch Planet
