Uniform or habit? The Bluecoats visit Mexico!

Sent to scout the enemy, Blutch and Chesterfield are chased by a Confederate patrol and forced to cross the Rio Grande to safety. But that safety is relative: stuck between Apache bandits and Mexican outlaws, our two Bluecoats have no choice but to disguise themselves as civilians - Blutch as a peasant, Chesterfield as a monk. But the nearby village is eagerly awaiting its new 'padre', and the villagers aren't fooled by the deception ...

Key Points:
  • New graphic novel is amongst the top 10 bestselling comics in French each year, with 184,800 copies sold for the 50th comic alone in 2006
  • More than 15 million albums sold worldwide
  • Highlights the absurdity of war and the often uncaring or incompetent leadership soldiers have to put up with
  • Features authentic battles and stories based on historical facts

'This is a hugely amusing anti-war saga targeting young and less cynical audiences. Historically authentic, always in good taste despite its uncompromising portrayal of violence, the attitudes expressed by the down-to-earth pair never make battle anything but arrant folly ... these are comedic tales whose very humour makes the occasional moments of shocking verity doubly powerful and hard-hitting' [Win Wiacek, Now Read This!]
