A quartet of big-apple-centric stories by Tardi including "Cockroach Killer" and "Manhattan."
Many years ago, Jacques Tardi was introduced to American audiences with âManhattan,â a grim and grimy story of depression, madness and suicide in New York City whose appearance in the premiere issue of RAW magazine was instrumental in defining both that magazineâs virtuoso aesthetic and its dark sensibility. Three decades later, New York Mon Amour collects âManhattanâand three other tales of the Big Apple â rendered by Tardi with just as much panache and you-are-there detail as Paris or the trenches of World War I in his other books â in one spectacular volume.
Aside from âManhattan,â the centerpiece of the book is the graphicnovel âCockroach Killer,â written by Benjamin Legrand. This violent,surreal conspiracy thriller, starring a hapless exterminator namedWalter, features a striking two-color black-and-red technique uniquein Tardiâs oeuvre, and remains one of the cartoonistâs most startling,confounding works. New York Mon Amour is rounded off with two shortstories written by Dominique Grange: âItâs So Hardâ (starring JohnLennon â but not that John Lennon â and never before published inEnglish) and âThe Killing of Hungâ (a story of revenge andredemption).
New York Mon Amour is a crucial and unique addition to Fantagraphicsâ acclaimed Tardi collection.Two color throughout
