Death by Chocolate by Alan Nolan

Marcel Petit-Pois, you are Invited to a Murder. The Kit-Kat Klub, Dublin. Thursday, Octover 17th, 8pm Sharp. I challenge you to stop Nitwit. Signed: The Chocolatier. Monsieur Petit-Pois, the famous but bumbling Swiss detective, accompanied by his assitant Tesla, Europe's second-cleverest chimp, travels Europe on the trail of a dastardly murderer! A graphic novel detective story unlike any other ...except for the rest of the Murder Can Be Fatal series!


'it represents another foray into the graphic novel medium for the Irish based publisher following on from the critically acclaimed Blood Upon The Rose'

'brilliant ... very distinctive ... really funny ... I would be all over this as a kid- it's got really gruesome murders!'

'Death by Chocolate is a great book that doesn't speak down to its audience and manages to pull in readers of all ages with its fun and quirky story'

'a beauty of a book ... this great fun story is a joy to behold ... A long standing complaint of modern day comics is that they are aimed at an older and aging audience but what O'Brien Press and Nolan have proved here beyond any doubt is that a book can -- Comic Buzz 'the graphic novel fans at school ... thought it was really funny'
