The Arctic Marauder by Jacques Tardi


The Arctic Marauder is a must-read graphic novel for any fan of the steampunk aesthetic; some critics have called it "icepunk." Only recently translated into English, The Arctic Marauder was originally published in French in 1974, and features beautiful woodcut-style monochrome art which sometimes eclipses the story being told.

The story takes Jerome Plumier from an ill-fated Arctic exploration back to France and out into the ice again in search of the marauder. It offers a satirical take on classic radio serials, including a narrator's voice commenting on the action. The dramatic conclusion definitely won't be what you're expecting!
