Jerome K. Jerome Bloche Is On The Case
First Volume of Alain Dodier’s Award-Winning Detective Series
Makes Its English Language Debut
San Diego, CA (September 27, 2017) – Zoom through Paris where mystery and hormones collide for the young detective Jerome K. Jerome Bloche as he hunts a killer in this Angoulême International Comics Festival award-winning series, brought to English-speaking audiences for the first time. Jerome K. Jerome Bloche, Vol. 1: The Shadow Killer is now on sale.
The first in a long series of beloved young adult tales — numbering over twenty-five in all! — artist and writer Alain Dodier along with co-scripters Pierre Makyo and Serge Le Tendre bring lovable, affable, and more-than-a-bit-clumsy Jerome K. Jerome Bloche to life with an easy wit.
Volume One, “The Shadow Killer,” finds Jerome close to completing his detective correspondence course when events lead him into a web of intrigue, artifacts, and mistaken identity. If he can solve this case — maybe he’s ready to be a real detective!
More Will Ferrell than Humphrey Bogart, despite his consistent attempts to look the part of a seasoned sleuth, Jérôme will need all his faculties (and his beloved Solex electric bicycle!) if he wants to complete Professor Maison’s course and find the killer.
“Alain Dodier gives us a delightful character in Jerome,” says Dean Mullaney, editor of this new edition. “This is the kind of fun adventure series that Europeans do so well. Hopefully this will be the first of many such series to be translated.”
Presented in hardcover, Jerome K. Jerome Bloche, Vol. 1: The Shadow Killer is currently available using ISBN 9781631409028 or Diamond Code MAY170548 – JEROME K JEROME BLOCHE HC.
