Black Kiss

 BLAK   (Vortex, 1988-1990)

©1988, 1989, and 1990 Howard Chaykin

Howard Chaykin (Star Wars, American Flagg) has always taken chances. Now, with the stylish Black Kiss, he pushes the bounds further than ever before. Black Kiss is a story of sex, corruption, lies, and murder.

Black Kiss follows Dagmar, a ruthless woman as she resorts to any means necessary to reclaim a set of tapes which are being used to blackmail her. Her blackmailer is equally ruthless—and they’ll both use anyone and anything to get what they want.

Reminiscent of American Flagg (but even more intense, if you can imagine it), Black Kiss is an adults-only experiment by one of the great writer/artists of comics.
