Publisher Description

Alack Sinner- The Age of Innocence is the first of two volumes that present for the first time in English the complete Alack Sinner comics by the Argentine-born team of artist Jose Munoz and writer Carlos Sampayo. Sinner is a hard-boiled private detective whose adventures are played out to a jazz soundtrack in a noir New York from 1975 through the 2000s. The stories are imbued with a deep political conscience and present a scathing critique of corruption in society, juxtaposed with meditations on the nature of violence and exile. The authors have rearranged the stories in chronological order of the characters and events, rather than dates of first publication, providing a novel reading experience for both new fans and old. The Age of Innocence collects eleven stories, including "Talkin' with Joe," "The Webster Case," "The Fillmore Case," "Viet Blues," "Life Ain't a Comic Strip, Baby," "Twinkle, Twinkle," and "Dark City." Alack Sinner is an international bestseller and between them Munoz and Sampayo are winners of Europe's top comics awards.

Author Biography

Carlos Sampayo is an Argentine writer best known for his work in comics, particularly in collaboration with artist Jose Munoz. The writer Carlos Sampayo is best known for the disturbing stories he made with artist Jose Munoz. Sampayo met Munoz in Spain after he fled from the military junta. They created 'Joe's Bar' (short stories about clients of a cafe in New York), 'Alack Sinner' (a hard-boiled detective in the style of film-noir), 'Jeu de Lumi res', 'Billie Holiday' and other stories. Sampayo also worked with Oscar Zarate, Jorge Schiaffino and Solano L pez. Sampayo's work is unusually mature for the world of comics, because of its grimness. The expressionistic black and white drawing style of Jose Munoz is the perfect form for these stories, which are not depressing because there's always some way out of the misery.

Review

"You can see very clearly why Mu oz and Sampayo have had such an inspirational effect on comics creators around the world (most notably in the USA on Keith Giffen and Frank Miller) but they remain unequalled, and The Age of Innocence is titanic, memorable work." --Woodrow Phoenix, The Slings and Arrows Graphic Novel Guide
