The best-selling and acclaimed author of ‘Glacial Period’ in the Louvre collection returns with a new series starring a dog auto repair mechanic so in demand, he can afford to move his garage to a distant hard-to-reach peak for peace and... privacy. The privacy, as it turns out, is to build a mode of transportation that can get him through earth and seas to his beloved far, far away. As unpredictable and totally original as ‘Glacial Period,’ this is a Plymptonesque tale filled with absurd, irresistible bittersweet humor.

Nicolas De Crécy is a comic artist whose work includes Bug Jargal, Foligatto, Glacial Period, and León la Came, as well as several other international works. He also contributed to the feature film La Vieille Dame et les Pigeons.From Booklist:
The long-standing commitment from French cartoonists to the expansive potential of sequential art and their willingness to experiment in areas of discomfort continue to provide ample material for NBM’s eclectic array of imports. This graphic novel, by De Crécy (Glacial Period, 2007), is in some sense about a gifted dog mechanic’s quest to find parts for the customized vehicle in which he’ll drive to South America (along with a miniature bespectacled bureaucrat) to reunite with his long-lost love, while it concurrently follows the blind pig, Amandine, in search of her lost progeny, who’s landed in the care of a pampered antiproletariat society girl. In another sense, this is about the mad pursuits that love sends us on and the small ways we must compromise ourselves for it. Children will eschew it for the existential world it depicts, and adults may be wary of its plump, textured animal caricatures and occasional slapstick. However, for a small, eccentric bunch, these are the weird preoccupations of a French madman, laid out on paper, that they’ve been waiting for. --Jesse Karp
