“The plot fairly gallops in this naughty adult soap opera … [Those] who like outrageous plot twists and offbeat characters should enjoy this romp.” – Library Journal

Paris in the thirties. The ‘Butcher of the Dances’ is on the prowl for young loose women. Blanche works as a maid along with the only family she knows, her sister, fun-loving Agatha. Suddenly, Blanche loses her to what she saw was murder but others only write off as suicide. She decides to take matters into her own hands. In her pursuit, she ends up hired into a luxury house of call-girls. She even becomes quite good at certain lascivious practices while still remaining a virgin! But she also doesn’t lose sight of her goal: find the Butcher.

A suspenseful spicy tale as only the French could so lightly get away with, yet deceptive in its depth and realism.

“Would make a heck of a movie. Hubert’s writing is first-rate, Kerascoët’s storytelling and character designs are vibrant, and the overall look of the book is delightful. That’s why
Miss Don’t Touch Me earns the full five out five Tonys.” – Tony Isabella, Comics Buyers Guide

“A more orthodox piquancy infuses
Miss Don’t Touch Me, a charming, Gallic twist on the murder mystery… and anything but prudish.” – Carlo Wolff, Boston Globe

Miss Don’t Touch Me is one of the most interesting blends of wickedly dark humor and grisly gore in recent memory. The script makes no bones about its brothel setting and the goings on at such a place, reveling in some wonderfully smutty humor, and the interpersonal relations between the employees, friendships and jealousies alike, pop off the page with a razor-edged wit. It’s almost ridiculous how NBM seems to keep finding brilliant work.
Highly recommended.” – Marc Mason,
ComicsWaitingRoom

“The mystery is involving and proceeds at a sprightly pace. It’s refreshing to see a sex-positive story and heartening to see a female lead character who’s quick-witted and brave. There’s no American analogue for this kind of breathless comic book mystery. It’s all so perfectly French.” –
The Stranger

“Call me twisted, but this book is, in fact, charming. Kerascoët moves the story forward breathlessly, and his disarming simplicity keeps
MIss Don’t Touch Me feeling like a light-hearted bedroom farce when it could easily veer into horror or soft-core porn.” – Andrew “Capt. Comics” Smith, Scripps Howard News Service

Miss Don’t Touch Me is really nothing more than a murder mystery and period piece, but it sure is a good one – so good, in fact, that you may find yourself needing to be reminded how un-ambitious an unpretentious it actually is.” – Newsarama

“Kerascoët depicts action and emotion beautifully and elegantly, with great feeling and boundless humor.” – Richard Pachter,
The Miami Herald

Booklist

•Literary review magazine

“Hubert and Kerascoet tell this story with artfulness and empathy that allow readers to appreciate Blanche’s dignity as well as her energy and creativity.”

High-Low

•Comics blog

“Miss Don’t Touch Me is both exploitative and in turn commenting on the nature of exploitation, and that natural tension of ideas is wrapped in a tightly-wound murder-mystery plot and turned on its head by the art.”

“This smart coming-of-age shocker is irresistible!”
