Saturday Morning Cartoons

From mind of renowned graphic novelist Jacques Tardi comes this riveting sci-fi adventure set in an alternate steampunk world of 1940s Paris. After her scientist parents mysteriously disappear, young April and her cat, Darwin, find themselves at the center of a shadowy and far-reaching conspiracy, and on the run from government agents, bicycle-powered dirigibles and cyborg rat spies.
