Angleface #1 by Benoit Prevot
I am so excited I just ordered Angelface #1 by Benoit Prevot! I got turned on to Monsieur Prevot by David Mason of Slick It Up fame. anyhow, here is some of the artwork by Benoit and a summary of the story:
Two friends rob a jewellery store in London and lay their hands on a small fortune. After a wild night of lustfull celebrations, Red wakes up to find "Angelface" has taken off with the loot! Not one to let his fortunes vanish, Red follows a steamy trail of clues to a ship headed to the States while Allan screws his way across the ocean. Allan arrives in Manhatten looking like a million bucks… but with a dangerous game ahead of him. Beautifully written and illustrated by French artist Benoît Prévot, Angelface is a series set in an era of prohibition, swing, speak easies and loose morals! A fantastic journey that intertwines elegance with erotica no fan of Class Comics will want to be without.
I just love the 20's Art Deco style of this guy's drawings and their similarity to Oliver Frey's. His characters are handsome and quite intriguing. I can't wait until it arrives! You can order this comic here.
