Summary
"Following the release of his latest movie, Orson Welles - renowned director and smoking aficionado - receives a celebratory box of cigars. As he indulges his habit, Welles comes to realise exactly what he's smoking: the final creations of Conchita Marquez, Cuba's finest cigar roller. Ranging from the heyday of the cigar industry to the glamorous heights of Hollywood's Golden Age, The Cigar that Fell in Love with a Pipe inventively combines romance, history, imagination and nicotine to ask the burning question: can love triumph over adversity, or does it all go up in smoke?"--From publisher's website
Summary
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' 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
