Created by Gérard Goffaux (AKA Goff)
Originally a Belgian BD about an adventurous and determined hardboiled American private eye, the first adventures MAX FACCIONI appeared in Le journal illustré in 1982, clearly aimed at the adult market. His subsequent adventures, toned down a bit, appeared in Spirou.
And then, several years later, in 1999, Sunset Strips, out of Beverly Hills, California, announced an ambitious 12 -part, bi-monthly comic book series that was to start in September, featuring reprints in English, with story and art by "Goff" (a pseudonym of Max's creator, Gérard Goffaux).
An interesting aspect of the new series is that it seems to be told in a series of flashbacks, with a coroner detailing Max's life to a rookie newspaper reporter, Chartlton Evans, over Max's corpse at the morgue. I'm not sure, though, if they're original stories, reprints or redrawn rehashes of the original stories.
- "The Punch" (1999, #1)
- "Death on a Leash" (1999)
