The complete two-volume adventures of the notorious cat burglar trio of Carole, Alex, and Sam.
Just in time for the release of Olympia this season comes a boxed set collecting The Grande Odalisque and Olympia, which form the complete, two-volume saga of master art criminals Carole, Alex, and Sam. Specializing in the theft of fine art, the trio reinvents a profession that has lost much of its fun and insolence since its heyday in the early 20th century. After successfully stealing La Grande Odalisque by Ingrés from the Louvre (in Fantagraphics' acclaimed 2021 edition of the same name) and taking on the French Special Forces, the trio eyes Manet's Olympia in the eponymous sequel. Collectively the two books paint a vivid portrait of three of the most badass femmes fatales in recent comics memory.
Forming a trio as formidable as their protagonists, Bastien Vives, Jérôme Mulot, and Florent Ruppert deliver a wickedly funny and explosive, grand symphony of adventure in this two-book series, collected for the first time in a handsome, hardcover slipcase.
