about

On the eve of the release of his latest movie, The Lady From Shanghai, Orson Welles receives a gift: An admirer has sent him a box of cigars. Rich and full bodied, they are the finest he’s ever tasted. But then, these are no ordinary cigars: They’ve been assembled by the most famous cigar roller in Cuba, Conchita Marquez. It is an exquisite gift, though one not appreciated by Welles’s wife, Rita Hayworth. As he smokes these most coveted of cigars, he daydreams about the plump genius Conchita Marquez, whose story of triumph, despair, and love unfolds within the pages of this stunning and imaginative graphic novel.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great Tried to enjoy this book but it felt shallow and also sometimes mean spirited. It doesn't portray the women within with much depth or self interest, and is very harsh to one movie star in particular. Overall can't really recommend it which is too bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not much of a story I didn't enjoy this book and felt the story was very skimpy, while also broadly portraying a relationship without really delving much into either of the characters. It makes Rita Hayworth look like a lazy, dumb bimbo and doesn't portray any depth for or son Wells either. The art is no great either, even though I loved the artists previous book Laika.
