Old City Blues is a cyberpunk mystery comic with the mood of a Noir tale, the fast-and-furious action of Japanese animation, and kinetic artwork that reads more like a big-budget sci-fi movie than a comic book. Old City Blues tells the story of a futuristic Athens, Greece, and the police force that navigates through the criminal life that dwells in it. Think Moebius and Paul Pope collaborating on a southeastern European blend of ‘Blade Runner’ and ‘Akira’, but with more giant robots.
Somehow, writer/artist Giannis Milonogiannis pulls all of this off with the finesse of an illustrator with much more comics experience. OCB will be available in print for the first time this June from Archaia Comics, but you can read a good chunk of the series free on the OCB website.
