finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize (Graphic Novel category):

"One of 10 Best Comics and Graphic Novels of the year."—Time

"A treat for sophisticated adult story omnivores with a taste for bizarre mysteries."—Library Journal

"Incidents owes more than a bit to Jorge Luis Borges's short stories."—Douglas Wolk, The Washington Post

At the end of first Incidents in the Night, David B. met an uncertain demise in a bizarre cliffhanger. In Book 2, the worlds of Epileptic and Incidents in the Night become entangled as the author's dead brother, Jean-Christophe, joins the cast to solve the mystery and uncover the occult machinations of the mad editor, Émile Travers. Book 2 is another treat for lovers of books and literary mysteries. Once again the translation is by acclaimed novelist Brian Evenson.

David B. is one of the world's finest cartoonists and a co-founder of the legendary L'Association collective. He is the author of many graphic novels including Epileptic, which was awarded Angouleme International Comics Festival Prize for Scenario and the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Artist.
