Many years ago, Jacques Tardi was introduced to American audiences with"Manhattan," a grim and grimy story of depression, madness and suicide in NewYork City. Three decades later, New York Mon Amour collects "Manhattan" andthree other tales of the Big Apple spectacular collection is this rendered byTardi with just as much panache and you-are-there detail as his reworks set inParis or the trenches of World War I. Aside from "Manhattan," the centerpiece ofthe book is the graphic novel "Cockroach Killer," written by Benjamin Legrand.This violent, surreal conspiracy thriller, starring a hapless exterminator namedWalter, remains one of the cartoonist's most startling, confounding works. Thevolume is rounded out with two short tales, both written by Dominique Grange:"So Hard" (starring John Lennon - but not that John Lennon), and "The Killing ofHung" (a story of revenge and redemption).
