IDW Publishing has announced it has released an English adaptation of the Alain Dodler’s detective series, Jerome K. Jerome Bloche, Vol. 1: The Shadow Killer.

Volume One, “The Shadow Killer,” finds Jerome close to completing his detective correspondence course when events lead him into a web of intrigue, artifacts, and mistaken identity. If he can solve this case — maybe he’s ready to be a real detective!

More Will Ferrell than Humphrey Bogart, despite his consistent attempts to look the part of a seasoned sleuth, Jérôme will need all his faculties (and his beloved Solex electric bicycle!) if he wants to complete Professor Maison’s course and find the killer.

The hardcover is available right now, and though I’m sure everyone’s first thought is “this looks like Tin Tin,” I’m still very interested in picking this up because there is something awesome about long running European comics.
