“The stories in Streets of Paris are absorbing, enigmatic, counterintuitive, and sometimes offbeat. The images don’t just echo the narrative, they propel it forward, convey mood, and expanded my notion of the types of stories that noir can tell.” — Kirkus
“Tardi's noir depictions of 1950s Paris capture the city's landscape, eliciting the appropriate sense of foreboding.” — Publishers Weekly
“What stays with you is Tardi's ability to conjure up Paris on the page. It's a vision of Parisian stone, rain, desire and death.” — Herald Scotland
