Description

It's a tiki murder mystery in the tropical heart of Trois-Rivières! When a former limbo champion is found dead in her apartment, the local police force finds no reason to suspect foul play. But amateur detective (and bookworm barmaid extraordinaire) Marie-Pomme knows there's more to this case than just too much piña colada... and she intends to prove it, even if it means risking her own life at the bowling alley!

The Pineapples of Wrath is a quirky detective story as well as a loving tribute to tiki kitsch and old school exotica. Cathon's exuberant art has both the vibrant tone of a steel guitar solo and the refreshing feel of a tropical drink topped with a toothpick umbrella. So sit back, relax and enjoy this insanely funny story set in the imaginary Hawaiian neighborhood of sunny Trois-Rivières, Québec.

About the author

Montréal-based artist Cathon makes children's books and comics. After self-publishing a couple of critically acclaimed zines, she published her first professional book, La liste des choses qui existent, in 2013 -- an absurd encyclopedia co-created with established cartoonist Iris. Her first solo book, Les ennuis de Lapinette, was published in April 2015 by Comme des géants. Vampire Cousins sees her exploring moodier territories, while still retaining her uninhibited drawing style.

Alexandre Fontaine Rousseau spends most of his time writing film reviews and comic books. His first graphic novel, Pinkerton, created in collaboration with François Samson-Dunlop, was nominated for a Joe Shuster Award. His second book, Poulet grain-grain, pondered the subjects of chickens and revolution. With Vampire Cousins, he conjures up a humorous homage to old-school Hammer horror and Jean Rollin's cult vampire classics.
