Vintage inspired comic books for your inner nerd

Everyone who has been following my adventures knows how obsessed I am with comic books. I’ve always loved reading comics, specially those set in the past. Since my collection has grown in the past months I decided to select some of favourite vintage inspired titles. Enjoy!

Blacksad (Juanjo Guarnido – Juan Díaz Canales)
Probably one of the best comics out there. Blacksad has won several international awards as well as Spanish recognitions. Set in the USA in the 1950s, introduces the story of John Blacksad, a detective in a world where all the characters are animals.

Ladykiller (Joelle Jones – Jamie S. Rich)
With a presentation such as “Betty Draper meets Hannibal Lecter” this comic book is perfect for vintage enthusiasts. The lead character of the story is the classic housewife one sees in the movies. Or maybe not. When her husband is away, this lady works as a spy and a secret agent.

New Deal (Jonathan Case)

Set in the Waldorf Astoria in the Great Depression, this book tells the story of a mysterious event at the hotel. Follow the life of a glamorous lady and the other guests.

Pin Up (Berthet & Yann)

It’s clear what this book is about, isn’t it? A combination of stories set in the 20th century with glamorous women, Vegas casinos, celebrities from the golden age of Hollywood and a sophisticated young lady with a goal in life: become somebody.

These are some of my latest discoveries that I wanted to share with you. Feel free to leave any other titles you think should be in the list!
