Description

Ten Thousand Years in Hell marks a sharp departure from the moody, urban detective style of Fantagraphics’s previous Gil Jordan graphic novel by Tillieux, Murder By High Tide. Instead, the title story is a rollicking prison-escape yarn set in South America. The second story, “Boom and Bust,” features one of Tillieux’s patented spectacular car crashes. Tillieux’s masterful graphics remind the reader why he was considered one of the top Franco-Belgian cartoonists of his time and, indeed, of any time.

“In Belgium and France, Maurice Tillieux is as lauded as Asterix creator René Goscinny. You’ve likely never heard of him. But Gil Jordan – Tillieux’s signature creation – may be the comic world’s greatest detective (sorry Batman).” —James Reith, The Guardian
