Titan Comics have announced their impending publication of Manchette’s Fatale, a comics adaptation of the work of world-renowned noir crime author, Jean-Patrick Manchette.
This edition, adapted by Doug Headline and illustrated by Max Cabanes, has been described by editor Lizzie Kaye as, “Lolita meets The Virgin Suicides.”
In Manchette’s Fatale, Aimée is a beautiful young widow – but she’s also a killer. Driven by a deep-rooted desire for revenge, she sets about uncovering the secrets of the inhabitants of the sleepy rural town of Bleville, before ruthlessly murdering them. Faced with corruption of a kind she had scarcely imagined, she discovers a deeply moral core under her murderous instincts.
Manchette’s Fatale hits comic stores on 4th November 2015 and will be available digitally to read on digital devices.
