Really excellent artwork by the Spanish comics master Alfonso Font is the draw in this action-packed series about a spunky, sexy female detective named Taxi. This volume, titled Une Croisiere en Enfer (A Cruise to Hell), takes place in the Mediterranean, North Africa, and the Egyptian Desert.
From the artist's site (the following describes the entire series):
Beautiful, fearless, resourceful and talented. That's Taxi. One night, a man named Nelson rescues her from an attack and changes her life. He works for a news agency called Control Press, and "recruits" Taxi for his investigative team.
In "The Dragon's Labyrinth," a rampant disease is killing only black people. Taxi risks her life to expose the sinister plot behind this "Black Death." In "A Cruise to Hell," things heat up as Taxi finds herself in the middle of an international crisis involving Israelis, Palestinians, arms dealers and lethal quantities of Plutonium. This time Taxi may be in way over her head. In "The Devil's Trench," an informant supplies Taxi and her cohorts with details to crimes before they happen. Taking on drug lords, assassins and corrupt police, Taxi needs eyes in the back of her head if she wants to survive this escapade.
