Here’s what we’ve got coming in October and being solicited for now at your comic bookstore:
MISS DON’T TOUCH ME, Vol. 2
Hubert & Kerascoet
Blanche tries to leave the Pompadour, the high class house of call-girls, but their hooks are in deep. Nevertheless she encounters what could be her ticket out: a very handsome and very respectful young rich man, Antoine. She also reunites with her long-lost mother. It all seems rather idyllic but Antoine may be a little too respectful and how come her mother suddenly reappears?

See the previews.
Here’s what they said of the 1st one which is presently sold out, back to press for October as well:
“Would make a heck of a movie. Hubert’s writing is first-rate, Kerascoet’s storytelling and character designs are vibrant, and the overall look of the book is delightful. That’s why Miss Don’t Touch Me earns the full five out five Tonys.”
-Tony Isabella, Comics Buyers Guide
“A more orthodox piquancy infuses Miss Don’t Touch Me, a charming, Gallic twist on the murder mystery… and anything but prudish.” -Carlo Wolff, Boston Globe
“Call me twisted, but this book is, in fact, charming. Kerascoet moves the story forward breathlessly, and his disarming simplicity keeps “MIss Don’t Touch Me” feeling like a light-hearted bedroom farce when it could easily veer into into horror or soft-core porn.”
-Andrew “Capt. Comics” Smith, Scripps Howard News Service
Miss Don’t Touch Me is really nothing more than a murder mystery and period piece, but it sure is a good one—so good, in fact, that you may find yourself needing to be reminded how un-ambitious an unpretentious it actually is.”
