A new English translation of the cult favorite…
The influential hard-boiled detective noir Alack Sinner, by Argentinian-born co-creators Jose Munoz and Carlos Sampayo, was popular in Europe in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s but the entire series has never been collected in English until now.
IDW is publishing the series in two volumes as part of its EuroComics imprint and the second offering — The Age of Disenchantment — is out 4/18.
Here’s the official solicitation info and your EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW:
Alack Sinner: The Age of Disenchantment
Carlos Sampayo (w) • Jose Munoz (a & c)
The Official San Diego Comic-Con Blog says Alack Sinner is “an absolutely spectacular example of what comics can be…. Muñoz’s influence can be felt throughout today’s comics, but there’s no other work like this out there.” Hard-boiled private detective Alack Sinner’s adventures exhibit the trappings of traditional detective stories, but are imbued with a deep political conscience and scathing critiques of corruption in society. This second and concluding volume in the series presents “Nicaragua,” “Private Stories,” “The USA Affair,” and “The End of the Road.”
