A cup of tea? A drop of milk? A spoonful of poison? At first sight, nothing would make the very select club called Green Manor stand out from any other English club. Yet behind its thick walls, sunk into its deep chairs, hides the biggest bunch of con artists, bandits and murderers that Queen Victoria's England has ever seen. Expresso Collection brings together stories pub ...more

The excellent series of short graphic stories set in 19th century London and featuring an array of inventive and gruesome murders, continues in this sequel titled "The Inconvenience of Being Dead". If you've read the first one and have compared the page count of both books, you'll notice this second volume is twice the length of Book 1 - this is because the third book, "Murderous Fancies", is also included here. So, 2 for the price of 1! I'm surprised this isn't mentioned in the product descript ...more

Green Manor is a series of short stories about murders and misadventures in Queen Victoria's England. The tales are all related back to the Green Manor, which seems have a knack at attracting misfortunes.

The stories are written by Fabien Vehlmann and they are fantastic, wasting no time getting you into the mood, and oftentimes end with a satisfying twist. The art by Denis Bodart is also very beautiful and appropriate, especially the colours.

This is a wonderful crime genre comic with great storyt

Collection of 10 murder mysteries, the volume’s not as good as the previous one. In this volume the stories primarily revolves around irony,the stories are not as clever as i had come to expect from the series.The art is beautiful, but gets repetitive with all the characters looking the same story after story.

second volume in this collection of sparklingly subtle murder mysteries. translated into English from Fabien Vehlmann's French, the locus is a nineteenth-century English gentlemen's club known as the 'Green Manor'. the stories maintain originality despite the looming shadow of Conan Doyle (who receives a graceful intertextual nod). the club setting is somewhat reminiscent of Isaac Asimov's Black Widowers stories. the denouements evoke surprise, but retain just the right degree of plausibility.

Charming, clever, politely gruesome and beautifully drawn, but: while the individual stories are tightly plotted and wonderfully paced, the overarching tale suffers, I think, by being separated into two volumes. I still enjoyed the full story that finishes in Vol. 2, but it really needs to be read together. If the printing had been organized differently, this would be a five-star graphic novel.
