The New Deal

The New Deal by Jonathan Case
(Dark Horse, 2015, 112 pages)

The New Deal is a graphic novel set in New York City in the 1930s. Frank and Theresa are a bellhop and maid, respectively, at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Their relationships with the hotel guests are explored, as Frank owes a gambling debt to a rich patron of the hotel, and Theresa provides extra service to a female socialite. When another wealthy woman’s dog’s gemstone collar goes missing, Frank and Theresa become suspects. The story follows the different characters as they investigate the truth about this and other thefts. The interesting story is complemented by excellent illustrations. I highly recommend this book for an engaging, quick read.
