Betty Blues is a powerhouse piece of work, a rich, textured, emotionally wrenching journey that challenges the reader at every turn… I was captivated by Betty Blues from beginning to end.” – Comics Waiting Room

Little Rice Duck has built himself quite the reputation around the West Wood, playing his trumpet in bars with their smoky, sweaty ambience, tequila sunrises, and jazz. But between his trumpet and his flame Betty, things are going astray. Betty is drowning her need of him in expensive champagne, something someone else is more than happy to provide... something he'd much prefer, like her, would just stay chilled.

Translated from the French,
Betty Blues won Best Debut award at the annual Angoulême Comics Festival.

“While a melancholy tale perfect for overcast days with a little Bessie Smith or John Coltrane in the background, the artwork will be sure to lift your spirits. Hopefully, more publishers will see the value of expanding their styles and allow a bit more freedom for their artists. Until then, we have publishers like NBM hunting down these treasures on our behalf.” – The New York Journal of Books
