Almost Budapest

Lucas Nine

GRAFIC NOVEL, LES REVEURS, 2019. 128 PAGES

Nine takes us to Budapest some time in the early decades of the 20th century. But this is a Budapest that has less to do with the actual city than the literary ghosts that haunt it. Gypsy violins, the melancholy Magyar, the hallowed Danube... everything is exaggerated, a farcical caricature. On one side is the ‘official' district with its elegant boutiques and large public buildings, on the other the Infamous Zone with its cabarets and degenerate nightlife. But it is the honest burghers of the former who walk the streets of the latter (often in disguise).
It is here that Inspector Sigilozy, Head of the Bureau of Disgrace (a decadent division of the police) will find himself at the centre of a story that involves a series of murders in which the victims are found drained of all their blood giving rise, of course, to rumours that a vampire is on the loose.
