(W) Graham Chaffee (A/CA) Graham Chaffee
Graham Chaffee's first graphic novel in seven years,
Light It, Shoot It! is a classic tale of noir below the
spotlight. Fresh out of prison for an arson conviction, clueless 20-yearold
Billy Bonney finds himself drifting through the seedy and
unsavory world of cut-rate moviemaking, even more out of place
amongst his peers than he felt as a teen six years earlier when
he got busted. Following his brother to the sets of grade B and
exploitation 1970s Hollywood seems like a path of least resistance,
until he accidentally lands a job as a handler to a has-been
actor. But the bright lights burn harsher and show more than he
anticipated as he steps lucklessly into a gangster-driven plot to
burn down a studio for the insurance money and finds himself
in over his head. Drunken, washed-up stars. Scrambling, pasttheir-
own-prime producers. Teenage girls on the make, slick
hustlers, and violent fixers. Drawn in bold brushstrokes, and
hand-painted in subtle washes, Chaffee brings vintage LA to
the page in a propulsive adventure.
