Crime Comics: "The Big Sleep"
I talked about the novel “The Big Sleep”before.
But this is the European comic book adaptation that is closer to the original story.
Phillip Marlowe is a Private Investigator hired by a rich man to solve the blackmail against one of his daughters, Carmen. When Marlowe investigates he finds out that is a pornographic blackmail and then the other daughter, Vivian, owns money to a casino.
Missing husbands, mobsters, murders and many betrays that keep you on the edge of your seat.
The art is black and white, with an exceptional use of shadows. The character designs are different from the movie adaptation, making the comic a different experience.
