Elegantly designed and packaged in a mix of full colour and black and white comics with French flap covers, this trio of graphic novels includes Marlowe’s classic final adventure, THE PENCIL, adapted from the Raymond Chandler story by award-winning mystery novelist Jerome Charyn and Marvel/DC comics illustrator David Lloyd. The collection also includes GOLDFISH, adapted by top British designer Ryan Hughes and TROUBLE IS MY BUSINESS illustrated by Alredo Alcala in a style reminiscent of 30s illustrator J.C. Leyedecker. None of this work has ever been published before and represents the first adaptations of these Chandler stories into comics.
In RAYMOND CHANDLER’S MARLOWE, illustrator Michael Lark presents a brand-new incarnation of Chandler’s famous fictional detective, a ‘comic book’ version of Chandler’s 1949 mystery. When Orfamay Quest hires Marlowe to find her missing brother, the case at first seems pretty straightforward, but – beset by mobsters, blackmailers and murder – Marlowe soon discovers that a missing person is the least of his troubles. The text is effectively tailored to clarify the original story, emphasising through Lark’s ‘comic noir’ artwork the dark, dangerous environs, both physical and psychological, in which Philip Marlowe still moves.
