One thought on “Miss Don't Touch Me, Vol. 1

  1. Seth T.

    Probably better than any other culture group, the French have over and again adapted the conventions of noir cinema to their own works This is fitting, after all, as film noir was a critical designation invented by the French to describe a certain mode of crime thriller Made popular in the 40s in the US, noir is generally counted to span the era of 1941 to 1958 from The Maltese Falcon to Touch of Evil, as it were Yet though film noir in its traditional, classic sense dies off in 1958 with Orson [...]

  2. Jackie "the Librarian"

    Blanche has a LOT of pent up rage, and who can blame her Her sister was murdered by a serial killer, the authorities didn t believe her when she told them what really happened and called it suicide, and then her employer fired her and sent her off into the street without a reference You simply can t have girls whose sisters kill themselves working for you, scandalous She s furious and out to find the men who killed her sister She gets an opportunity to use that rage when, in her not very skillfu [...]

    It s Nancy Drew, except Nancy is a dominatrix.Ok, so not exactly There s a serial killer on the loose in 20s Paris, and the sister of one of his victims has to go undercover as the virgin dom at a high society brothel to exact her revenge.Candy for me Though I m not sure what that says about me.This is a great example of a GN where I don t find the art very attractive, but got completely sucked in by the story I love that about good GN writing.It s very graphic, both sexually and violence wise a [...]

    What s not to like A crime thriller set in a thirties Paris brothel, where a woman, Blanche, whose sister was murdered by some serial killer, gets a job in the brothel to see if she can get some insight explore snoop around into who mightta dunnit And she s a virgin, our Blanche, ha.Do we believe that this girl can get a job as a prostitute and remain a virgin dominatrix her shtick in the brothel, as it turns out Nah, but it s pretty fun, and sort of titillating so for a man than a woman maybe [...]

  6. Andrew

    oh my This is a racy little graphic novel that stills manages to be charming and stylish Probably because it is written by the French and they can get away with being risque and tasteful The graphic style reminds me of Kate Beaton only with nipples and exclusively about murder and prostitutes in post WWI Paris I get the impression she d like it you know because of its style and her interest in European history not because of the graphic nature The pacing is great and the characters are interest [...]

  8. Jennifer (The Nightly Book Owl)

    Fair Warning This book is quite graphic, but that s to be expected when you read a graphic novel in which the main characters are prostitutes.There s a murderer in Paris, and they call him The Butcher of the Dances, preying on loose women at dances and whatnot The main character, Blanche, has a sister who is murdered by this serial killer, so she goes on a little journey into a brothel to find out who killed her sister Can she work undercover in a brothel and find out who the killer is and still [...]

  9. Caleb

    A serial killer on the loose, a high class brothel, a sister seeking justice and revenge Sex and violence, those staples of entertainment that we seem to have an insatiable appetite for are given a playful working in this delicious graphic novel The media dubbed Butcher of the Dances prowls the streets of Paris in the early twentieth century, seeking young woman returning from suburban late night dances to make them a headline Witness the Butcher at work with his latest victim and her sister bec [...]

  10. Arminzerella

    Blanche is convinced that her sister Agatha was murdered by the Butcher of the Dances when she is shot in their tiny apartment after they discover a peephole between their room and the next building When the authorities arrive the murder weapon is in Agatha s own hand and they decide it s a suicide Blanche is determined to find the real killer s and ends up taking a job in an upscale brothel where the last victim of the Butcher is said to have worked She becomes Miss Don t Touch Me, a dominatrix [...]

  11. Skye Kilaen

    I was enjoying this quite a bit Then, without seemingly any narrative reason, the artist undressed a character who I thought of as trans Literally nothing seemed to happening in the story that required or was furthered by this full reveal of her body There was very little similar treatment of other characters that we re supposed to like, despite most of the book taking place in a bordello It just took me right out of the story I don t know my trans history well enough to understand how Miss Jose [...]

  12. Andrea

    This felt like an R rated version of a Scooby Doo episode, with admittedly no van and way fewer dogs except for that one guy who liked to bark d with a decidedly noticeable increase in vajay jay and sexy times An improvement, really.You could definitely feel the French in this story had a much open and honest view on sex and prostitution while still being decadent and glamorous or at least as glamorous as sex work can get An interesting mix in any case, and an interesting story Although, I didn [...]

  13. Meepelous

    Reading this comic by the Frenchman Hubert, I was not surprised at all that it reminded me of Little Vampire because apparently the husband wife team of Kerascoet who illustrated this volume also did work in the Little Vampire series, as well as another spooky favorite of mine, Beautiful Darkness.Very much a noir sort of story, I would like to hold this up as a good example of a noir story that is not misogynistic, and written by a man no less While the story does certainly still centre around s [...]

  14. Susan

    Blanche begins this story as a housemaid, but is drawn into trying to find the butcher of the dances, who she believes murdered her sister In the process, she finds herself working at a high class house of call girls, and gets drawn into much than she bargained for There are a few interesting characters, though For example, Josephine, a transsexual, is mysterious and complex But most of the other characters are fairly one sided And most men in the story are portrayed as at best the victims of t [...]

    Na prvu se ini da cartoon crte ilustratora Kerasco t skupni potpis bra nog para Marie Pommepuy i S bastiena Cosseta nikako ne ide uz ovu temu i da bi bolje pristajao neki ozbiljniji stil, no ini mi se da ba to i ini ovaj, to se ti e pri e, relativno prosje ni krimi zanimljivim Zabavno, sa dosta humora i pri om koja dobro te e i zavr ava.

  16. Allie

    It s weird that I read this right after Sex Criminals, Volume 1 One Weird Trick Both are great, but a little risqu to read on the bus.

  17. Sharon

    Not impressed Whoever translated the text did an inferior job the language was choppy and stilted, but some of the plot points were awkward as well I wasn t overly impressed with the artwork either.

  19. Pop Bop

    A Sophisticated French Graphic NoirFirst some important housekeeping so that you aren t disapointed with what you buy Blanche s story originally appeared in English in two volumes Miss Don t Touch Me and then Miss Don t Touch Me Volume 2 Each runs about 96 pages Then came Miss Don t Touch Me, The Complete Story , which includes both of the earlier volumes This is my review of The Complete Story , but I m posting it on all three book sites as a warning to buyers to be careful.This is a very inter [...]

    There have been so many graphic novels that I ve picked up from the library on a whim without knowing what to expect, so it s a pleasant surprise that none of them have disappointed me at all Miss Don t Touch Me is about a young woman in 1930s Paris who is determined to hunt down a serial killer after she witnesses her sister s murder which had been passed off as a suicide by the police This whole book is a wild ride, filled with strong female characters and intriguing mysteries that kept me cap [...]

    Blanche and her sister, Agatha, work as maids in 1930 s Paris The whole town is in an uproar over a serial murderer who has been terrorizing the city When Agatha is killed, the death is ruled ruled a suicide Blanche, the only witness, knows the truth and sets out to find the killer She takes a new job at a high end brothel, but manages to avoid having her virginity taken by becoming a dominatrix type prostitute appropriately called Miss Don t Touch Me Her new job enables her to learn about the [...]

  23. Jeff

    Maybe this deserves 4 stars, because despite the setting the author managed to avoid pandering to the prurient interests i recognize that my inability to identify illustrated faces hindered early comprehension of key plot developments and my slothful attention to verbal cues also contributed to lack of understanding at the time that Hubert could reasonably expect an intelligent reader to find clues to solve the mystery.I m not much for mysteries, though, so i m going to round down from 3.5.If yo [...]

  24. Jax

    Although I usually don t like mystery stories, I think the art style and the stubborn mad protagonist made up for it The graphic novel is fully colored solidly which is nice on the eyes, even when they show particularly unpleasant images Caution This book is not meant to be read by an young audience because some of the pictures have sexual content and disturbing graphic violence Nonetheless, they all mix into a very interesting story that is unlike other stories today It s similar to the tales o [...]

  25. Travis Duke

    Entertaining murder mystery set in 1930 s Paris It tells the story of Florence and her search for the truth about murdered friend Florence is a maid but soon loses her job and decided to find investigate her fellow maid s murder It leads her to a brothel where she gets a job as Miss don t touch me, a play on words because of her role It is a standard who done it mystery that is fun to read but it is anything amazing for me The art matches the time frame and is complementary for the story.

  26. Salamah

    What a wonderful graphic novel about a woman who does not give up so easy In order to avenge her sister s death Blanche decides to go find the killers in an established prostitution house She even ends up becoming one of the girls by acting the part of a dominatrix The scene of her stabbing her hand and the dismembered body parts were especially gross The fact that Josephine Baker had a part in this story made it extra special A mystery that had lot s of twists and turns A must read

  27. Erikka

    A crime thriller graphic novel involving a woman investigating her sister s murder by getting a job in a brothel It wasn t bad, a little edgy for my tastes, but I liked the art It read like a movie.

  28. Darcy Roar

    Murder, mystery, a Dominatrix The art is, of course, amazing but the story gets bumpy in places Josephine is really the one who gets things done and is generally fabulous Artistically a 5, story wise a 3.
