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.
