Description

Paris, 1914. In one auspicious night, Lucien Brindavoine’s humdrum life is thrown into wild disarray. Out of the blue, a strange old man visits and implores him to go to Istanbul. But a shot is fired through the window and the man is murdered. Thus kicks off a madcap adventure wherein the mild-mannered dilettante races to the Middle East — by boat, plane, and jeep — with cutthroat assassins threatening him at every turn, only to find an iron city in the desert where an eccentric American billionaire will decide his fate.

The first solo graphic novel by Tardi, Farewell, Brindavoine showcases the French cartooning master’s signature blend of dark humor, brutal violence, and beguiling mystery. For Tardi fans, an essential early work; for newcomers, a thrilling primer to the Tardi oeuvre.

First published in Pilote in 1972 and 1973. “Tardi’s stories collected in this volume don’t have plots in the traditional sense. Rather, they are a succession of spectacular visual sequences that follow the surrealistic logic of dreams and nightmares.” from the new 2021 Preface by Benoit Mouchart, Director of Graphic Novels at Casterman.

Striking hardcover with gold embossed cover details and a handsome cloth binding in full color.
