New York, Mon Amour

Published On June 20, 2012 | By Joe Gordon | Comics, New arrivals

Yes, we have some Tardi. We have some Tardi today…

Among this week’s crop of new releases is another in Fantagraphics’ excellent and continuing series of extremely welcome English language editions of the diverse body of work by the great Jacques Tardi, surely one of the top exponents of the comic form. We’ve seen mad scientist Jule Verne-esque adventures with the Arctic Marauder, hardboiled crime with West Coast Blues, the horror of combat in It Was the War of the Trenches, and not forgetting his classic Adele Blanc-Sec series all being reprinted in lovely hardback editions by Fantagraphics. Now joined this week with New York, Mon Amour, a collection of short tales set in NYC in the 80s, on shelves today. I’m so glad the Fanta crew has been making these titles available again to English language readers.
