Heads Up!

Heads Up: “Salvatore, Vol. 1,” by Nicolas De Crecy

Soon to be available in English, it’s…

The publisher says:

Vol. 1: Transports of Love
Nicolas De Crecy

The best-selling and acclaimed author of ‘Glacial Period’ in the Louvre collection returns with a new series starring a dog auto repair mechanic so in demand, he can afford to move his garage to a distant hard-to-reach peak for peace and… privacy. The privacy, as it turns out, is to build a mode of transportation that can get him through earth and seas to his beloved far, far away. As unpredictable and totally original as ‘Glacial Period,’ this is a Plymptonesque tale filled with absurd, irresistible bittersweet humor.

Although the poor paper selection and tiny trim size of NBM’s last De Crecy translation, Glacial Period, made it difficult to appreciate the nuances of De Crecy’s artwork, and I don’t expect Salvatore to be any different, there’s only one game in town right now for English-language versions of De Crecy’s books, so… I… will… grit.. my… teeth… and… buy… the… damn… book…

  1. The last volume of the serie was just published in France. I bought the 3(?) previous but I think I will stop here. No real story. I liked very much the two first ones, the character were intriguing but I have the feeling de Crecy has no idea of what to do with them. Maybe I’m wrong…


  2. I think NBM’s “Vol. 1” includes the first two volumes of the series as they were published where you live, Li-An. So if the first two volumes are the best ones, we’re in luck here.
