Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Old City Blues is a fantastic webcomic written and drawn by Giannis Milonogiannis that harkens back to such works as Ghost in the Shell, Dominion Tank Police, Appleseed, and Akira, part original work and part homage to their cyberpunk styles and themes, backed up by truly unique and vivid pencils that separate his work from any other I've encountered.

More specific to this exact product, however, I feel the quality of the publication deserves special attention. Every page is very dense, high quality paper that feels far more substantial than your average comic or manga page. The hardcover binding, front, and back are minimally designed (mine was a canary yellow book completely different in appearance from the thumbnail on Amazon's page) with subtle embossing of the art. It's a very clean, obviously well-crafted package that's visually appealing within your living space, condensed and light enough to be easily taken anywhere, and sturdy enough to last. However, if -for whatever reason- you find yourself particularly taken with the blue and white cover Amazon displays, you may come away disappointed, or at least surprised.

To preview the actual product design, as I received it, see Mr. Milonogiannis' web page.

Here is a review on the hard cover graphic novel presentation by Greek newcomer, Giannis Milonogiannis, published by Archaia Entertainment.

What is this graphic novel about? Here's a description:

"The murder of the CEO at the head of the world's foremost cybernetic corporation sets the stage for Old City Blues, the gripping new futuristic noir from publisher, Archaia Entertainment.

Old City Blues begins in the year 2048 of Southeastern Europe. Built on the ruins of the country once known as Greece, New Athens is a city crawling with life--low-life, that is. From mech smugglers and drug dealers, to corrupt politicians and all-too-powerful corporations, the city is at the mercy of high-tech criminals. And it's up to Solano, Thermidor, and the rest of the New Athens Special Police to keep the city in order. When the cybernetically augmented founder of a tech corporation called Hayashi is found murdered, it seems to be just another case of cyborg persecution. But Hayashi Corporation's strange response to the incident raises suspicion in Solano and the Special Police. The mystery they unravel will lead them straight into the wasteland of the Old City."

What were my thoughts on this graphic novel?

While the premise is one that sounds somewhat 'familiar'... The different style artwork by Giannis Milonogiannis gives a new approach to this genre.

It does help that Giannis is also the writer, in that he can illustrate his vision of the storyline in a black & white format.

The only possible problem in a work such as this, is that when one person is both the writer & illustrator, they are the one responsible for the total work.

This is my favorite comicbook story of 2011,its been a while since a story and it"s art complimented each other this well in SIMPLICITY,and yet still remained CAPTIVATING and Refreshing, It is a GREAT Black & White mono science fiction throwback of the eighties,and I LOVE IT.OCB avoided ALL the overly done stuff we see monotously in comics these days,while still remaing CREATIVE,SIMPLE, and Different for difference sake,and pulls it off.The Hard Cover Canvs Feel was also a nice finishing touch to it"s credits.i cant tell you the amount of times i keep going back to it...

I bought this on a whim the other day, which turned out to be one of those rare moments where life steers you down the right path. Giannis is a wonderful artist who knows how to use loose and accurate style at the right time, I especially love his tech design.

If you are someone who enjoys Gundam, Ghost in the Shell, Blade Runner, or Metal Gear, this is for you. If you just like comics and a good story, this is also for you. Milonogiannis is extremely talented and I am hoping he makes more installments to this series soon.
