   x 25 cm. -- Summary (paraphrased from amazon.com by

   cartoonist Pat Grant. Part autobiography, part science
   fiction, Blue is the story of three spotty teenagers who
   skip school to go surfing, only to end up investigating
   rumors of a dead body in their beach town. At a deeper
   level, it is an exploration into Australia's acceptance and
   resentment at migrant culture, territorialism and casual
   racism through the eyes of these three adolescents in a
   partly fictional town named Bolton. -- "This comic is for

 "The Private Eye" p. 7-12 -- Summary: Abe Doplelaple is a private eye in New York City, who drinks a case of bourbon every day. A client comes into his office with a piece of cheese, and tells Abe to keep it safe because it contains an important nipple somehow connected with the Bolsheviks. The prospective client dies and is disposed of, and another comes in looking for a nipple that she inherited from her father, which has been stolen by her husband. Both Abe and the new client are kidnapped by a gang looking for "Baby Potemkin's Teat." Abe and the woman are tied before an advancing buzz saw, and Abe tells her not to worry. After she has been cut to bits, Abe tells them the teat is in a cheese on his desk. It's not there, but the police arrive on time to save Abe.

 "Requiem for Abe" p. 13-22 -- Summary: Abe Doplelaple is hired to look for a pair of suspenders, yellow with green butterflies. A client lost them in a whorehouse, and now he is being blackmailed. Abe checks all the rooms, and finally finds a despairing woman named Sadie trying to hang herself with them. The owner of the house has been collecting all kinds of intimate apparel from important men so that she can use blackmail to control the city. Abe gets his feet set in a tub of cement, but the police arrive in time to save him. Abe hires Sadie as a secretary.

 "Racket Rumba" p. 23-37 -- Summary: Dolores Corazon, the last witness against Rudy Toccata, comes to Abe Doplelaple for protection. She also wants to recover the proof that she has against Toccata, which is on a medal hidden in a bottle at the Livid Slug night club. After getting the medal, Abe and Dolores find themselves trapped in the club. The police arrive, and with winks exchanged Dolores and Abe are turned over to them. The police have them in an alley ready for execution, when a higher-ranking policeman comes and rescues them, tipped off by Sadie, Abe's secretary. Sadie is jealous of Dolores, and spoils a date that Abe had planned.

 "Got a Job for You" p. 38-41 -- Summary: Sweet Delice has a job as an "artistic dancer," and Abe sees her thrown out of her place of work without any clothes. She says she refused to do overtime, and they fired her without her back pay of $300. Abe decides to help. He goes into the club and gets thrown out as well, but with the money.

 "Ze Malted Bourbon" p. 42-50 -- Summary: Abe's bourbon delivery is late, and he finds the delivery man on the sidewalk, dying. The police accuse him of having a part in the murder. Abe is then hired by a client who says she thinks her hired delivery men are drinking on the job. It turns out she is hiring men to steal the bourbon from her own company to get insurance money.
