Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There’s a grand old tradition of scaring, empowering and entertaining kids through carefully crafted horror stories with junior protagonists, and this occasional series is one of the better modern examples.
Conceived and executed by journalist Virgine Vanholme and youthful yet seasoned illustrator Alain Mauricet, the Mort de Trouille series of albums was launched by Casterman in the year 2000. There have been seven sinister sorties so far, although not all have been translated into English yet…
Robin Lavigne and boisterous overly-imaginative Max Mornet are a couple of lads with an infallible instinct for ferreting out the weird and uncanny…
In 2008 Cinebook picked up Mort de Trouille: Le vampire des Marais and invited English-speaking kids to solve the mystery of The Vampire from the Marshes, which began when the boys first snuck a peek at forensic scientist Dr. Lavigne’s locked files…
The well-travelled medic has been called in to examine a body found in rural Deadwater Swamp: a corpse stinking of booze, drained of blood and completely covered in hundreds of tiny triangular bite marks…
His son Robin and especially horror-story obsessed Max are fascinated by the case and the latter envisions all manner of ghastly and vivid vampiric scenarios, despite his more prosaic pal’s protestations…
All too soon the lads are invading the (still potential) crime scene, recording their own findings and suppositions.

By A. Ross TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 19 Jan. 2013
Format: Paperback
As a child, I grew up reading large format European comix such as Tintin and Asterix, so I try and pick up new European stuff in translation when I come across it. This is the first book in a French series about two boys and their misadventures with the supernatural. I couldn't quite get a fix on their ages, but they seem to be somewhere in the 11-13 year-old range, and the book is definitely pitched a little too young for my taste. Robin's father is a coroner for the local police (or something like that, not entirely how the French system works), and one night, while poking around in his home office, the boys come across a case file for a recent mysterious death. Soon enough, they are poking around the riverbank where the body was found, convinced that the death is the work of a vampire. What ensures is only mildly diverting, and the story never ends up leading anywhere that interesting. The art and coloring are solid enough, but it's not something that's going to satisfy adult readers and I'll pass on the rest of the series.
