Blanc Noir: Déjà Vu
Issues 1 & 2
by Mason Arrigo
& Philip Barragan

This special issue is a compilation of Marabou Mule, Private Eye's first two issues. Blanc Noir introduces Miss Marabou investigating a string of socialite murders. Ms. Mule is stylish, sassy, smart, but runs fashionably late-to the detriment of her clients. Working with her nemesis Alabaster Sconce, she dives into a dark and mysterious world filled with twisted monsters of human creation.

In Blanc Noir Deux, Marabou's new case involves billionaire tycoon Ronald Trixon. Up to no good and beyond his usual skulduggery, bullying and white-collar crime, 'Tricky Trixon' adds murder and domestic slavery to his portfolio.

Marabou joins forces with her long-time friend Roxanne Rollins and new friend Aadila and together the three dive headfirst into high society to reset the balance of good versus evil. Strange, mysterious, and terribly delicious, Blanc Noir and Blanc Noir Deux  are Marabou Mule Mysteries.
