The original Adventures of Blanche comics came out in floppy format in the 89-90 range, but it wasn't until 2009 that Dark Horse collected all the stories into a single volume. That it was worth the wait, for Dark Horse was the original publisher but was much, much smaller when these first saw print, for these stories to find new audiences in a new format, is an understatement.
Geary's humor and keen sense of history are as present here as any of his other historically-based works, but seem somehow more lively, more joyous. The intertwining of a fictional character with real-life characters and events (only a few in these) is difficult, and Geary pulls it off magnificently.
Historical fiction frequently ends up with either the fiction feeling falsely forced onto the real events or the history takes a backseat and becomes entirely irrelevant. Not here. Blanche dances in and out of real places, events and the lives of a few real people so deftly that the stories (with a few fantastical exceptions) really do feel like they could be reminisces of some globe-trotting young lady with a talent for being in the right place at the right time.
If you aren't familiar with Geary's work, this is a great place to start. If you are a Geary fan but somehow have overlooked this, complete your collection ASAP.
