Description - Alack Sinner The Age Of Innocence by Carlos Sampayo

Alack Sinner- The Age of Innocence is the first of two volumes that present for the first time in English the complete Alack Sinner comics by the Argentine-born team of artist Jose Munoz and writer Carlos Sampayo. Sinner is a hard-boiled private detective whose adventures are played out to a jazz soundtrack in a noir New York from 1975 through the 2000s. The stories are imbued with a deep political conscience and present a scathing critique of corruption in society, juxtaposed with meditations on the nature of violence and exile. The authors have rearranged the stories in chronological order of the characters and events, rather than dates of first publication, providing a novel reading experience for both new fans and old. The Age of Innocence collects eleven stories, including "Talkin' with Joe," "The Webster Case," "The Fillmore Case," "Viet Blues," "Life Ain't a Comic Strip, Baby," "Twinkle, Twinkle," and "Dark City." Alack Sinner is an international bestseller and between them Munoz and Sampayo are winners of Europe's top comics awards.

Author Biography - Carlos Sampayo

Carlos Sampayo is an Argentine writer best known for his work in comics, particularly in collaboration with artist JosU Mu oz. aThe writer Carlos Sampayo is best known for the disturbing stories he made with artist JosU Mu oz. Sampayo met Mu oz in Spain after he fled from the military junta. They created 'Joe's Bar' (short stories about clients of a cafU in New York), 'Alack Sinner' (a hard-boiled detective in the style of film-noir), 'Jeu de Lumiores', 'Billie Holiday' and other stories. Sampayo also worked with Oscar Zarate, Jorge Schiaffino and Solano L pez. Sampayo's work is unusually mature for the world of comics, because of its grimness.
