The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec: Pterror Over Paris / The Eiffel Tower Demon (2010)
language
English
3.38 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: With twisty murder-mystery/sci-fi storylines and artwork that really evokes early 20th-century Paris, my interest was held throughout the book, but overall I wasn't left with much of an impression afterwards. Part of the reason I found this less compelling may have had to do with...
West Coast Blues (1976)

review 1: An aimless young sales executive who likes to mix booze and barbiturates and drive his Mercedes at 90mph around the rim roads of Paris stumbles onto a crime scene and finds himself pursued by some very bad people. Actually they are bad but strangely ineffective, and the hero, who...
It Was the War of the Trenches (2010)
language
English

review 1: Tardi's war of the Trench's pulls no punches. The gruesome depictions of war in this series of stories is unrelaenting and present a dark dystopian picture of war that holds all parties responsible for human atrocity and depictts all nations involved as selfish and callous. The b...

review 1: I enjoyed the comic, although I had to piece it together from its first US printings in anthologies and it took me a couple years to do it. Tardi's work is old school mastery of the ink and compelling characters. Storywise, it borders on the confusing as to who is doing what fo...
The Arctic Marauder (1974)
language
English
3.51 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Beautiful to look at, truly weird and wonderful. I didn't quite get the voice; the narration and the characters' choices could occasionally be alienating. And the ending was about as ridiculous as the studio-imposed ending of the movie Hell on the Pacific, which I happened to wat...
Loopgravenoorlog: 1914 1918 (1993)
language
English

review 1: This is Tardi working at the absolute peak of his creative powers. The passion he derives from the subject matter -- the sheer waste, futility and stupidity of trench warfare; the arrogance and ignorance that resulted in the horrible deaths of millions over the five year span of ...
La guerra de las trincheras (2000)
language
English
4.14 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: J'ai bien aimé cette BD sur la Première Guerre mondiale. C'est assez bien documenté et donc très intéressant. On ne présente pas de héros, et ce, pour offrir l'aspect plus réaliste, le côté plus universel de la guerre. Toutefois, pour ce qui est du récit, je trouve que c'est une ...

review 1: This collection of tales from WWI provides a gritty view of the horrors of front line combat in the Great War. Like the book "Company K", it relates the trials of the lowest ranks as they struggle to survive in a manmade hellscape.Tardis uses his realistic style to good effect in...
Le Démon Des Glaces (1974)

English

review 1: My English teacher told me I had to read this story. Honestly the driest moments of my entire life. The art is not equally distributed to the massive amounts of texts. In my opinion this is a short story that they added a few words to... There is very little closure and the conve...

review 1: This caught my attention as an early steampunk title. Like a lot of other reviewers, I was enthralled by the artwork but disappointed by the writing. It is my understanding that this is supposed to be a satirical work, but the references to Jules Verne, etc. just seemed laughingl...
¡Puta guerra! (2008)
language
English
4.01 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Laatusarjakuvaa. Ajoittain ehkä kaipasin jonkinlaista tarinaa ja dialogia tapahtumien tarkastelun ja kerronnan sekaan. Ihan toimiva ratkaisu tämä ranskalaisen sotilaan kertojana ja sodan hulluuden kuvaajana toimiminenkin on. Onnistuneesti kuvataan sodan molempien osapuolten toimi...
La position du tireur couché (1981)
language
English
3.75 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Another fabulous noir-inflected graphic novel adaptation by Jacques Tardi of french crime writer Manchette, who I definitely need to check out separately from these brilliant graphic novels as a huge noir fan. I might have liked West Coast Blues just a hair better than this one a...
New York Mi Amor (2008)
language
English
3.5 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Sleazy times square, New York Cit-ay rendered in Jacques Tardi's hyper-realistic and hyper-mediocre ways. Captures all the everyday grime in scabby, scraggly, lovingly, strikingly black and white. And sometimes red too. I used the think Frank Miller was the best noir comic maker ...
