Alack Sinner The Age Of Discontentment, Paperback / softback Book

Alack Sinner The Age Of Discontentment Paperback / softback


The concluding volume of the international bestseller and winner of many ofEurope's top comics awards, now available in English for the firsttime. The Age of Discontentment is the second of two volumes presentingthe complete Alack Sinner comics by the Argentine-born team of artistJose Munoz and writer Carlos Sampayo.

Hard-boiled privatedetective Alack Sinner's adventures wear all the trappings of traditionaldetective stories, but are imbued with such deep political conscience andscathing critiques of corruption in society, that to think of them as nothingmore would be a grave error.

Juxtaposed with meditations on the nature ofviolence and exile in a noirish New York at the end of the 20th century, thesethemes force us to confront the gritty injustices of our real world, making themas evident as the grime and desperation that pervade traditional detectivefiction.

Alack Sinner stories play out against a jazz soundtrack,beginning in 1975 and running through the 2000s.

The authors have rearranged thestories by series chronology, rather than date of publication, providing a novelreading experience for fans both new and old.

The Age of Disconetentmentpresents eleven stories, including "Nicaragua," "PrivateStories," "The USA Affair," and "The End of theRoad."
