The Librarian

Blacksad!

After much stalling and delay, Amazon finally let me have the volumes 1 and 2 of Blacksad, an absolutely gorgeous graphic novel from France, written by Juan Diaz Canales and illustrated by Juanjo Guarnido (don't be deceived by the names ... both were born in Spain, but now live and work in Paris). Very film noir in appearance and plot, even if it is in colour. It's hard to find art samples of this work online, but have a peek here to see some of the panels (and you can brush up on your French at the same time).

And definitely, definitely, put Blacksad on your to-read list.
