NEWS: Alan Nolan's Death By Chocolate

O’Brien Press have given Alan Nolan’s Death By Chocolate graphic novel an August release date. Priced at just €7.99, it represents another foray into the graphic novel medium for the Irish based publisher following on from the critically acclaimed Blood Upon The Rose from Dublin native Gerry Hunt in 2009. It will be the first of three children aimed graphic novels from Nolan, with the other two due to drop in September and October.
Book Description: Marcel Petit-Pois the famous, but bumbling Swiss detective, and his sidekick Tesla, the second cleverest chimp in Europe, are on a case. The mysterious Chocolatier has committed a series of confectionary-related killings.
In a rollercoaster adventure, Petit-Pois teams up with old friends, follows clues, uncovers gruesome murders and eventually finds out that although he believes himself to be an investigative genius, he’s actually second banana to a chimp.
