Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Easy to read yet great stories, cool setting and very entertaining series. I read them again and again, and recommend them to anyone who will listen, as an essential product of my homeland next to chocolate, fries and beer (yes, Belgium)
Don't be fooled by the movie by the way, the quality of the graphic novel/comic is quite different.
A good thing about the English version is that they come as a complete story (the original version has two books per 'story', so you need to buy at least two for them to make sense, whereas here they are bundled).
I would recommend the original (in French) to anyone who can read French, but puns aside it should work as well in English.

I bought is for a nephew to encourage his reading, but had half an eye on having a read through it myself because the reviews on Forbidden Planet were so good. I failed, said nephew having left with the book before I had a chance to read it. I guess we deduce from that he liked it.

So here is the simple equation:
The Prodigal Son
[ADD] Trading Places (-1)
[TO THE POWER OF] The Apprentice (the finals)
[DIVIDE BY] Hamlet
[SQUARE BY] 24 style time constraint, Tin Tin, Lonely Planet and "page 3"
[MULTIPLY BY] James Bond (movies, not books)
[SQUARE ROOT TO] James Bond (pop culture icon)
This all equals = Largo Winch ...
Loved it.

The story of the book is great. I am a fan of Largo Winch and having read them in French I wanted to compare the English version.
Unfortunately the pages of the book had detached from the book cover and had been badly glued back.
There were grease stains from the glue and the lower part of the book was loose and not stuck to the cover.
The book was in such a bad state that it should not have been sent out.
A positive point was that they refunded the money quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars more-ish action adventure 22 April 2009
By J. Shurin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The terrific first volume to this slightly sleazy and very more-ish action adventure.

Largo Winch is the lost heir to the 'W Group' - a massive corporation worth a kazillion dollars. When the company's founder kicks the bucket, there's a scramble to find the hitherto unknown Largo. Hangers on, assassins, henchmen and the ladies are all out to find Largo.

Like the rest of the series, the first volume is actually a collection of two graphic novels. The first sets up the adventure and takes it to the moment of greatest tension. The second then shows Largo (and friends) struggling valiantly towards success.

The Heir is cleverly written and a lot of fun. Largo, with his knife-throwing antics, womanizing and bad haircuts, is a pretty ridiculous hero - half blatant escapism, half Jean Claude Van Damme movie. If he can't solve a problem with sex, he solves it with violence, if he can't solve it with sex or violence, he solves it with money. It is a little deeper than that (and, indeed, it is a surprisingly well-plotted adventure), but not by much.

This is the '24' or the 'Rome' of the comic book world - a tangled, well-scripted plot, hiding behind nudity and violence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Artwork ! 17 July 2008
By HB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A good "action" and "attempt to takeover" yarn, the hero's character is a bit too much in the "Bond" mode.
Overall a good plotline and the artwork specially the outdoor scenes is outstanding.
4.0 out of 5 stars Quite fun 24 Aug. 2009
By J. Kovaleski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Largo Winch is indeed a lot of fun. It plays with with the conventions of outlandish 60's adventure fiction in an intriguing way. An enjoyable read.
