What the fuck was that ending
Blanche disappoints and becomes unrelatable, but can I fault her for being who she is One of the perils of letting yourself relate to or live the story you re reading is being rudely thrown out of it by the author s intentions I expected from Blanche but she s led a traumatic life and I respect this series for not sugarcoating things.
Wow I didn t expect this volume to be even f ed up than the first one, and yet I appreciated how I had a better understanding of what was going on this time, although the transitions are, well, nonexistent The story is a riveting, easy read I polished this off in about a half hour waiting for dinner but the ending really The story of Miss Don t Touch Me ends there
Not as flashy as the first volume, but it slows down, we get to know the characters better, and it is still fun and is a mystery I liked it a lot, kept me turning the pages, and the art is great
Completely different tone from the first volume Did not enjoy
Slightly disappointed that this one is less of a whodunit The mother plotline made me rageful Still very readable and well executed I m sorry this seems to be the end.
Starts off in a pretty clunky, cold open manner, but once it gets going this turns out to be quite a perilous and well paced story it felt to me is though this sequel had somewhat better developed characters, which is to be commended It s also somewhat shocking, and not entirely because of aspects of the world relating solely to the 1920s
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 [...]
The wonderful creative team of Hubert and Kerascoet return for a sequel to their wonderful graphic novel Miss Don t Touch Me The story picks up right after the previous one where Miss is trying unsuccessfully to leave the brothel, before her mother arrives to visit and a wealthy young man falls for her But all is not as it seems and the darker side of human nature and the intolerance of the early twentieth century both rear their ugly heads to thwart Miss plans for a better life I thought that t [...]
Though i really like the visuals of these 2 vols, the story telling puts me off a little bit I think it s the extremely cynical view of humans that it insists upon If you ll recall, i couldn t hold my tongue about the publisher s gaffe on the 1st vol s backcover they said the title character s name was Florence when it s actually Blanche Well, i have another quibble, and this time it s with an apparent character incongruity view spoiler Is this really a spoiler At the very end of vol 1, there s [...]

This sequel didn t have the hair raising hijinks of the first novel, and instead centers on the emotional issues and social expectations of women men in pre 20th century France Miss Don t Touch Me is still at the French brothel and now wants to leave Similar to American sharecroppers mining companies at around the same time, though, the brothel charges exhorbant fees for necessary items so that employees are constantly paying off debts and can never leave.The end of the book made me very sad, an [...]
A good follow up to the first volume better in some ways it s a little less plot driven, and takes a little time to explore the characters Set in a Parisian brothel, but this isn t soft Europorn as I had thought it might be It has something of a social conscience, and like the first volume while much of it reads like an adventure romp it still retains a steely edge to keep you anchored.
This tale meanders a bit co pared to the first I was surprised to see Blanche stay in the brothel, but it led to a lovely and sad tale about the perception of sexuality in early 1900s The storyline with the mother was odd, had good points and bad But again, the depth of Blanche s resolve to overcome is wonderfully portrayed.
What an odd discovery this series turned out to be lovely and disturbing and surprising I read the first one quickly, and was so enad of it, I travelled a fair bit to purchase the second one at one of the only stores in my area that happened to have it The illustrations are so sleek and expressive.
I m really sad with how this ended but what is to be expected from Hubert Kerascoet Happy endings aren t really their thing I still really loved the story and the characters made me feel so much angry and sadness Great storytelling and art.
Blanche finds her knight in shining armor to take her away from the brothel she entered in Vol 1 to find the person that murdered her sister However, things unravel very quickly and Blanche finds herself in danger again.
A follow up to the original story, in which the main character finds a potential ally and attempts to leave her job as a dominatrice at a brothel Stunningly told with many twists and turns to the tale, and a devastating ending.
not the thriller vol 1 was, but a very well stitched story so french.

This French comic maintains a light, comedic tone while dealing with heavy violence, forced prostitution, and a lobotomy as an attempt to cure homosexuality At times it really works.
Further adventures of Blanche, as she tries to leave the brothel and ends up with a man who isn t everything he claims to be Reallllly depressing ending.
The end of this volume and apparently the series was disappointing to say the least I can kind of see where they were coming from with the ending, but it was tonally jarring from what had previously been established Due to spoilers, I don t want to say much than that.
This volume is just as well executed as the first I didn t know where they could go with the story, but the progression seems perfectly natural If there is a lesson to be learned here, it s that most people are terrible human beings This point is driven home so well that I could not help but give it 4 stars instead of 5 I m gonna go cry now.
I feel like I just had a freight train driven through my head.
