ENGLISH EDITION

The complete collection of the comics by Manchette & Tardi. It includes both the volumes published by Fantagraphics in 2020.

This is a bundle with the two books together, as sold separately. It doesn't include the now out of print slipcase.

BOOK 1

The first of two volumes presenting all of the world-renowned hardboiled crime graphic novels (one of which has never before been collected in English!) in a luxurious oversize format.
In the never-before-collected Griffu, the titular character is a legal advisor, not a private eye, but even he knows that when a sultry blonde appears in his office after hours, he shouldn't trust her — and she doesn't disappoint. Griffu is soon ensnared in a deadly web of sexual betrayal, real estate fraud, and murder. In West Coast Blues, a young sales executive goes to the aid of an accident victim, and finds himself sucked into a spiral of violence involving an exiled war criminal and two hired assassins. This volume also offers a bonus, 21-page unfinished story by Manchette and Tardi, as well as a single page introduction to another incomplete story, both appearing in English for the first time.

Pages 168, Hardback, Black and white, 9.1" × 12"

BOOK 2

A globally acclaimed crime novelist and a pioneering cartoonist team up to bring readers two graphic novel noir thrillers, collected in an oversized format.
The second of two volumes presenting all four hardboiled graphic crime novels by Jean-Patrick Manchette and Tardi. Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot — Martin Terrier, killer-for-hire, needs just one more big job so that he can turn in his guns for good and return home to marry his childhood sweetheart. But soon, he's on the run — not only from the authorities and his treacherous ex-clients, but also from a crime syndicate seeking revenge for an earlier hit on one of theirs. In Run Like Crazy, Run Like Hell, philanthropist Michael Hartog hires Julie, just out of a psychiatric asylum, as a nanny. But he plans to fake the kidnapping of his son, Peter — and frame Julie for it. But Julie is no pushover, and soon, Julie and Peter are on the run, pursued by the police, and by Hartog's enforcer, the hulking contract killer, Thompson.

Pages 196, Hardback, Black and white, 9.1" × 12"

"The stories in Streets of Paris are absorbing, enigmatic, counterintuitive, and sometimes offbeat. The images don't just echo the narrative, they propel it forward, convey mood, and expanded my notion of the types of stories that noir can tell." — Kirkus

"Immerse yourself in Manchette's cruel, violent world, and thank Tardi for bringing his brilliance to comics in his clear, unfussy style." — Grovel

"Tardi's noir depictions of 1950s Paris capture the city's landscape, eliciting the appropriate sense of foreboding." — Publishers Weekly

"What stays with you is Tardi's ability to conjure up Paris on the page. It's a vision of Parisian stone, rain, desire and death." — Herald Scotland
