Eisner and Harvey nominated comic author Renaud Dillies presents Betty Blues, a full color graphic novel featuring anthropomorphic characters searching for meaning in a complex and difficult world. Little Rice Duck is a jazz musician by trade; he loves his girlfriend Betty, but also devotes himself heavily to his music--perhaps too heavily. Feeling neglected, Betty becomes entranced by the attention of a wealthy tycoon who sees her as a potential conquest. Each of them eventually realizes the painful consequences of their mistakes--but will it be too late? The shaded art complements this universal story of love, regret, and lingering hope. Betty Blues is also available in various ebook formats: Apple (9781561637591),.pdf (9781561637607), Kindle Fire (9781561637614), and Nook (9781561638925).
