Little Rice Duck has built himself quite the reputation around the West Wood, playing his trumpet in bars with their smoky, sweaty ambience, tequila sunrises, and jazz. All he needs is that Betty character, one bitch bathing in expensive champagne. But like the champagne, he’d much prefer she just stay chilled. In this graphic novel, the acclaimed author brings together his love for music and comics.

About the Author:

Renaud Dillies is a comics artist who studied at the famous St. Luc School of Art in Tournai, Belgium. He won the Best First Album Award at the Angouleme Comics Festival, France’s highest set of awards for comics. He is the author of Abelard and Bubbles & Gondola.

From Booklist:

While trumpeter Rice Duck flies high onstage at the Tequila Sunrise, girlfriend Betty Blues (some bird!) struggles for liftoff with glass after glass of champagne. So, does Rice love music or her? In slinks fat-cat (literally) James Patton and, promising cases of top-shelf bubbly, gets Betty to ditch the trumpeter. Rice doesn’t notice while he’s blowing, and soon he plummets to the depths—he tosses his horn off a bridge (not, providentially, into the drink); hits the road; winds up shoveling coal at a clear-cutting camp; and befriends a big owl of a fellow worker who is planning to spike the lumber operation. Meanwhile, Betty, decked out in ice by her “benefactor,” is still drinking, but she’s also rethinking. Though Dillies’ (Bubbles and Gondola, 2011) line is more nervously energetic and his work’s aura less heroic (though no less romantic), his noirish plot most resembles the work of Dillie’s fellow French graphic novelist Christophe Blain (Isaac the Pirate, 2003). Not even fire glares in this dusky mixture of anthropomorphic animal comics and noir lighting. --Ray Olson
