Pre-Order   Ships Mar 08, 2022


A new selection of graphic stories by one of France's most influential artists, now translated into English.

Nicole Claveloux's exquisitely surreal comics offer a mix of whimsy and melancholy, invention and candor that can be found nowhere else. In Dead Season -- her second collaboration with Edith Zha, who wrote her gorgeous dreamworld odyssey The Green Hand -- she follows a mismatched pair of investigators into a windswept seaside town. They soon find that all is not what it seems -- and it already seemed pretty weird...

The title story is joined by a selection of Claveloux's delightfully strange shorter comics, featuring the struggles of a talking spider, the joys of a dancing macaroni, the very odd story of a woman in love with an economist, and much more.
