Still Jacques Tardi does a good enough job with the excellent material he has. Like its source material, it runs . Another solid work From Tardi. I think Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot was a great adaption and worked very well as a graphic novel. The illustration and simple and clear.

Still Jacques Tardi does a good enough job with the excellent material he has. Like its source material, it runs very fast and very rough, with our assassin finding himself on the wrong side of the business when he decides to retire. Everything goes wrong. They supplement the story well.

Like many of the greatest noir thrillers, Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot begins with a classic . Tardi's illustrations are pretty Superb. Jacques Tardi adopted "The Prone Gunman" by Jean-Patrick Manchette and its splendid.

Like many of the greatest noir thrillers, Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot begins with a classic, even clichéd set-up: Martin Terrier, the hired killer, needs just one more big job so that he can turn in his guns, return to his native village to find and marry his childhood sweetheart, and retire. Without a doubt Manchette is my discovery of a new(ish) noir writer - and his stuff is pretty bleak, in a very French style of course. Nevertheless the narrative is about a trained assassin who wants to quit his work, but alas can't.

Jean-Patrick Manchette (19 December 1942, Marseille – 3 June 1995, Paris) was a. .

He wrote ten short novels in the seventies and early eighties, and is widely recognized as the foremost French crime fiction author of the 1970s - 1980s. His stories are violent explorations of the human condition and French society. Fantagraphics released a second Tardi adaptation, of "La Position du tireur couché" (under the title "Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot" ) in the summer of 2011, and a third one, of "Ô Dingos! Ô Châteaux!" (under the title "Run Like Crazy Run Like Hell") in January 2015.

Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot by Jacques Tardi; based on the novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette. Manchette himself claimed to have written the novel in an attempt to emulate the ultraviolent,, pitch-black ambiance of Robert Aldrich's Kiss Me Deadly, and Tardi matches him bullet for bullet and blow for blow.

The beautiful perspective shot of the first two panels not only gives us a sense of the town in which the action occurs (it's Worcester, although we don't know that from the page) - the row homes stretch to infinity, each exactly the same as its neighbors, creating a corridor of conformity that is broken up by the violence on the bottom.

JEAN-PATRICK MANCHETTE (1942–1995) was a genre-redefining French crime novelist, screenwriter, critic, and translator. Born in Marseille to a family of relatively modest means, Manchette grew up in a southwestern suburb of Paris, where he wrote from an early age.

Jean-Patrick Manchette. Another extremely hard boiled graphic novel adaptation by Tardi of a novel by Manchette. A well worn premise of a burnt out hit man completing what he planned to be his last assignment, being followed by his former employers, and eventually cornered into completing just one job - which goes badly wrong. And a lot of bodies and mayhem along the way. Like West Coast Blues, also a Tardi adaption of a Manchette novel, it works well in the relatively sparse black-and-white illustrations.

Jacques Tardi, Jean-Patrick Manchette . As with the other Tardi/Manchette books, Run Like Crazy is full of moments of pitch-black humor, and a strong current of socio-political satire runs beneath its bleak surface. It's a ride to hell, but a devilishly fun one.

The Tardi/Manchette team of West Coast Blues reunites for another brutal neo-noir classic.

Like many of the greatest noir thrillers, Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot begins with a classic, even clichéd set-up: Martin Terrier, the hired killer, needs just one more big job so that he can turn in his guns, return to his native village to find and marry his childhood sweetheart, and retire. But nothing goes as expected, his “last job” turns out to be a set-up that results in a bloody shoot-out from which Terrier barely escapes with his life, and soon he’s on the run from not only the authorities and his treacherous ex-bosses but also the members of a crime syndicate still seeking revenge for an earlier hit on one of theirs. (We won’t even mention what they do to his cat.) With Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot, Tardi, at the top of his form, once again puts his lushly efficient neo-clear-line style in the service of Manchette’s gleefully brisk prose for a spectacularly dark, violent and fast-paced crime thriller that will delight fans of their previous collaboration, West Coast Blues. (NOTE: Manchette’s original 1981 novel, La Position du tireur couché, was released in English under the title The Prone Gunman by City Lights in 2001.) 104 pages of black-and-white comics
Reviews about Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot (5):
Livina
excellent
Atineda
A graphic novel based off of Jean-Patrick Manchette’s incredibly good THE PRONE GUNMAN, this book does not improve on the original. That is no insult. THE PRONE GUNMAN is very, very good and it would take a lot to improve on that.

Still Jacques Tardi does a good enough job with the excellent material he has. Like its source material, it runs very fast and very rough, with our assassin finding himself on the wrong side of the business when he decides to retire. Everything goes wrong. The woman who said she would wait for him of course did not. His finances are ruined. The family of an old mark are hot on his trail. All our little hero wants to do is live a relaxed life. It will not be so simple.

A quick read, LIKE A SNIPER LINING UP HIS SHOT gives more in returns than it takes in time. Worthwhile.
Pedora
A fine crime story, I'm not familiar with the author's other works but as a fan of Darwyn Cooke's recent Parker series I picked this up to try something different. This is a great crime story, with an added layer of complexity as the protagonist is, more or less, an incredibly naive professional killer. There is real beauty and tragedy as he deals with life not following his plans. This is not a heroic noir. This is not hard boiled noir. This is a European crime story touched with tragedy.

Another solid work From Tardi. I think Like a Sniper Lining Up His Shot was a great adaption and worked very well as a graphic novel. The illustration and simple and clear. They supplement the story well. The plot is classic noir. Simple, cliched, you don't know exactly where it is headed, but you can be sure the general direction is down, down, down.
Kifer
This is classic french - attempting to make the noir crime novel high art, and it doesn't work. The ending falls apart in melodrama. The art is nothing spectacular, certainly not worth the praise by the publisher.
