The next chapter of this highly acclaimed off-the-wall nominated for an Eisner series that never ceases to astonish and amuse! Salvatore the crack dog mechanic has now finished his rig and is off to all the way out somewhere in Latin America to his sweetheart pooch he has been pining for. His trip which he takes with his reluctant assistant, a minuscule human who communicates only through his PC, goes all the way through Russia and the Bering Straits, a route he characterizes as epic but is really designed to avoid the seas which Salvatore is deadly afraid of. On the way, there are many temptations such as the pretty cat Julie who, as it turns out, has adopted the missing piglet Amandine the Sow has been so desperately spending her last penny trying to find while, unbeknownst to her, the rest of her litter is busy in a lucrative endeavor of bio recycling. 

"Things are constantly moving in this book, even if, like Salvatore discovers, all that movement wound up plopping him back at the beginning of the journey. De Crecy ensures the reader that the fruitlessness of Salvatore’s journey doesn’t extend to the entertainment value and sheer delight found in his cartooning." – High-Low

"Nicolas De Crecy’s romantic comedy tour de force continues with witty aplomb and tongue firmly planted in cheek. Reading Salvatore is like reading a Shakespearean comedy, with De Crecy’s pointed commentary on the human condition coming in the form of clever double entendres, slapstick pratfalls, and calculated exaggeration."

An Arab Melancholia

Irresistibly charming, angry, and wry, this autobiographical novel traces the emergence of Abdellah Taïa’s identity as an openly gay Arab man living between cultures. The book spans twenty years, moving from Salé, to Paris, to Cairo. Part incantation, part polemic, and part love letter, this extraordinary novel creates a new world where the self is effaced by desire and love, and writing is always an act of discovery.

Transit

This brilliantly shrewd and cynical universal chronicle of war and exile, translated into English for the first time, amounts to a lyrical and reflective history of Djibouti and its tortuous politics, crippled economy, and devastated moral landscape.
